Not nearly as good as Green Card or The Proposal
6 December 2018 | by Jackbv123See all my reviews

There was little to no chemistry between Vivicia A Fox and Ricco Ross. There's no basis for budding romance here.

As for acting, I'd expect much better from Fox who was almost hysterical sounding at times, which was much more than what was needed for the part.

Even given that you'd expect the premise to be a stretch, why would the boss offer a higher position to Brooke when the asset he wanted was Roger?

The thing on short supply that The Proposal certainly had was comedy. This movie barely raised a smile for me. The other thing in the other two movies was that the couple realized they needed to occupy the same apartment and the comedic tension created by that. If Brooke is so frightened by the legal threat, living together should be a no-brainer. And she continually resists doing things that are just as necessary for their situation. She seems to avoid time together which would assist in getting to know one another. If this is cramming, then expect an F.

Everything in the story having to do with Gwen is just stupid. Her sudden uninvited appearance when he just started a new job, leaving her on her own in a strange place, visiting his workplace.

Traditional dad? And you allow what Brooke's ex does?

On top of everything else, Brooke is annoying.

All this goes back again to the question - where's the fun, where's the comedy, especially in a Christmas rom-com? I know that a story needs some tension and conflict to make the story interesting, but this movie is all tension and very little fun.

The ending was not any better than the rest.
