Review - Bruno ***

Like Borat before it, Bruno is filled with some very funny confrontational humor. Those who liked the extended nude chase/wrestling and Rodeo scene in Borat will like this movie. It’s full of gay sex, celebrity baby, and Hitler jokes.  It’s much more shocking, but not as fun as Borat.

Review - The Proposal ***1/2

As a concept, “The Proposal” is a textbook Hollywood romantic comedy. I started off hating it, slowly began to like it, then we had a falling out. Fortunately, we made up in the end.

The story is pretty simple. Margaret Tate (Sandra Bullock) is an overbearing boss who’s about to be deported back to Canada. To keep her job, she blackmails her overworked assistant, Andrew Paxton (Ryan Reynolds), into marrying her on the sly. If their fraudulent relationship is uncovered by the U.S. government, it could mean $250,000 and five years in jail for Andrew. To prove they’re a true couple, Margaret must travel with Andrew to meet his family, who lives in Alaska. On paper, it’s actually a lot like the plot to 2007’s “I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry.”
