While the Sandra Bullock/Ryan Reynolds romantic comedy The Proposal has been off my radar for weeks now, the movie has been quietly continuing to rake in the dough. Over the last weekend, the comedy's domestic sales reached $155 million, "bypassing the total domestic tally for Sex and the City." On the list of highest grossing romantic comedies of all time in North America (adjusted for inflation), Pretty Woman comes in at No. 1, and The Proposal is No. 19, just above Sex and the City, which is No. 20.
This makes me happy, since I liked The Proposal much more than the Sex and the City movie, though it also surprises me a little. Does it surprise you? Have you seen both films? Which do you think is better?
