8 Best Proposal Scenes From Movies
Hollywood romance has a way of sweeping us off our feet! There are just so many romantic movies out there that we love to sit and watch over and over again. But do you wonder which ones have the best proposal scenes – the scenes that you hold your breath and wait for? Well, here’s a list of 8 best proposal movie scenes that make you believe in the beauty of love, all over again
1. PRETTY WOMAN
Richard Gere, with an uptight business-like attitude, and Julia Roberts, a ‘sensitive’ hooker, make an unlikely romantic pair. But, the movie beautifully follows their interesting romance, culminating in the final proposal scene. When it seems that they've gone their separate ways, then comes that ‘oh-so-cute’ almost fairy tale styled proposal scene. The only difference is that Richard Gere is on a luxurious car rather than riding a horse! This one obviously makes the heart of romantics melt! Indeed a beautiful proposal that makes you believe in the power of love.
2. THE PROPOSAL
The proposal at first is not a marriage proposal but a business proposition in which the boss, Sandra Bullocks ‘forces’ Ryan Reynolds to ‘marry’ her to avoid deportation to Canada. What follows is a hilarious journey of the two, as they struggle to pose as ‘lovers’. From the business like fake ‘proposal’ in the beginning, to the final and real ‘proposal’ by Ryan in the end, everything is just cute and funny. The final proposal scene in front of the whole office and the kiss just takes your heart away!
3. SWEET HOME ALABAMA
There’s something very romantic about the couple who fight and then get back together again. SWEET HOME ALABAMA is about the married couple who grow apart. Reese Witherspoon, at the altar of her second marriage, has the realization that her heart still belongs to her first husband. The final scene with Reese Witherspoon rushing to find Josh Lucas who is busy trying to create special ‘glass’ from the lightning is pretty touching. And lightning does add that special magical effect to the kiss!
This one is definitely a winner for uniqueness in its proposal scene. With the help of a spool of thread, Ed Harris beautifully proposes to his young beloved Julia Roberts. Very beautiful and very meaningful too!
5. MAID IN MANHATTAN
MAID IN MANHATTAN is a traditional fairy tale like story amidst the contemporary political drama, spiced with sprinkles of poverty and class struggle. As in classic romantic stories, here too it seems that the lovers will not meet, but at the end, love triumphs over everything. The final scene where the son of the ‘maid’ (Jennifer Lopez) whisks the politician (Ralph Fiennes) away to unite the lovers is really heart touching. The final proposal with that passionate kiss is truly awesome!
6. BED OF ROSES
When the sensitive, Christian Slater proposes to the insecure, Mary Stuart Masterson, she refuses. But then she goes back to him to finally admit her love. That moment is truly brave and everyone waits for the response of heartbroken Christian Slater. And when it seems like all is lost, at the very last moment, he calls her back. That final union wins over the heart of every romantic.
7. NOTTING HILL
When Julia Roberts, the Hollywood star shown in the movie NOTTING HILL, proposes to her commoner boyfriend Hugh Grant, everyone expects him to say yes. But, he doesn't. And moments later, he realizes what a ‘daft’ he has been and then begins the chase. Hilarious and sweet, both at the same time. The direction of the proposal scene when Hugh Grant poses as a journalist and proposes indirectly to Julia Roberts in front of everyone in the press conference is truly genius!
So revisit these movies again and re-live those beautiful romantic proposal moments!
