Why bother going to the movies when you can just wait 2 months for video to come out. The Proposal with Ryan Reynolds, Sandra Bullock and Betty White looked like a typical but funny romantic comedy. I’ll probably want to see this but I’m not going to expect much from it. Below is the official press release:
The Proposal with Never-Before-Seen Alternate Ending Coming to Blu-ray™ Hi-Def and DVD on October 13, 2009
Burbank, California, August 14, 2009 —Corporate ambition makes for strange bedfellows when a hard-nosed executive talks her overworked assistant into a marriage of convenience in The Proposal, arriving on Blu-ray Hi-Def and DVD on October 20, 2009 from Buena Vista Home Entertainment. A contemporary romantic comedy from director Anne Fletcher (27 Dresses), The Proposal is available in Two-Disc Blu-ray Hi-Def and DVD editions, as well as Single-Disc DVD and Blu-ray editions. Bonus features include filmmaker commentary, bloopers and a hilarious alternate ending. Both Two-Disc DVD and Blu-ray versions also include a Digital Copy of the movie that can be viewed on an array of electronic devices.
Sandra Bullock (The Lake House) and Ryan Reynolds (Adventureland) match comedic wits as the ultimate odd couple in the year’s most hilarious and offbeat love story. With Mary Steenburgen (Step Brothers), Craig T. Nelson (Blades of Glory), Malin Ackerman (The Heartbreak Kid) and a scene-stealing Betty White (Bringing Down the House) rounding out one of the funniest casts in recent memory, The Proposal keeps the sparks flying and the laughs coming with sharply witty dialogue and dazzling chemistry.

Margaret Tate (Sandra Bullock) terrorizes her publishing house co-workers with her abrasive, take-no-prisoners management style, especially her overworked assistant Andrew Paxton (Ryan Reynolds). But when Margaret is threatened with deportation to her native Canada because of an immigration technicality, the quick-thinking exec announces that she and Andrew are engaged to be married. Ambitious Andrew agrees to go along with her scheme—if there’s a long-awaited promotion in it for him. Everything is going according to Margaret’s plan, until an overzealous immigration official makes it his business to prove that the couple’s engagement is bogus. To demonstrate her commitment to her new fiancé, Margaret agrees to celebrate the 90th birthday of his colorful grandmother (Betty White) — in Alaska. The editrix’s type-A ways put her at odds with her eccentric future in-laws with hilarious consequences, until the Paxtons teach Margaret a thing or two about family.
