Memorable Movie Proposals

Buzz In: What Movie Proposals Do You Love?

Around this time of year, my calendar starts to fill up with weddings, which also means I've been hearing all about the proposals for a while now. Inevitably this leads me to think about cute movie proposals, like the one in Bride Wars when Anne Hathaway's character finds a ring in a fortune cookie. It's not a good movie, but that part is sweet.

And while the romance was doomed, I still think Patrick Dempsey's proposal to Reese Witherspoon's character in Sweet Home Alabama is totally romantic. Alone at Tiffany's surrounded by sparkles? Awesome. Another adorable movie proposal involving Ms. Witherspoon comes from Walk the Line in which Joaquin Phoenix's Johnny Cash corners his lady love on stage and tells her, "Now I've asked you 40 different ways and it's time you come up with a fresh answer. . . . I'm asking you to marry me. I love you, June. . . . You're my best friend. Marry me." The cutest!

Now it's your turn: what movie proposals do you love?

"Stepmom has my favorite proposal with Ed Harris giving Julia a ring box containing a spool of thread. Then he ties a loop of thread onto her finger while telling her that marriage is hard and we have to love each other like we do know and hold on to the love, even if it's only by a thread. It always seems so real and beautiful." Damn, I thought I would be the first one to mention this. It is my absolute favorite. I don't like glitzy, over the top proposals that are all for show. It should be about just the two of you. I can't imagine a more romantic proposal than when you are just hanging out in bed.

GAH! The Wedding Singer! Love, love that scene when he is serenading her on the plane. "I'll carry you around when your arthritis is bad..." Plus... Billy Idol! Genius and so sweet!

I can't believe no one has mentioned the proposal in The Wedding Planner where the really cute Italian guy proposes to J Lo.'s character with the ring in the dollhouse...ugh I cried like a baby. && yes Collin Firth in Love Actually was another A-MAZING proposal!

Mine is definitely the Stepmom proposal. I loved how clever, but also real, simple and meaningful it was. Beautiful.

I'm also joining the Colin Firth bandwagon. I loved his proposal in Love Actually and Bridget Jones. And of course, Matthew Macfayden in P&P. I will watch that scene in the rain over and over and over again. Though I do like his 2nd "proposal" as well. And definitely Sweet Home Alabama. I'm such a sucker for chick flicks, lol.

Stepmom and Runaway Bride totally. I wouldn't want a big planned engagement, something simple and private.

I totally agree with the poster who mentioned the proposal in Stepmom; it seems so genuine. Of course, I love P&P, when he completely insults her. Lastly, I love in the Wedding Singer when Adam Sandler sings "I Wanna Grow Old With You" to Drew Barrymore.
