Best Big-Screen Proposals
Just in time for the opening of the Sandra Bullock-Ryan Reynolds rom-com The Proposal, we asked our readers which movie characters popped the question best. Check out the clips from the scenes that make you swoon.
A Walk to Remember
The Proposal: A bad boy falls in love with the preacher's ill daughter, culminating in his surprising, romantic proposal under the stars.
What You Said: "When Landon proposed to Jamie in A Walk to Remember, it took my breath away, then came the tears... all 90-some times I've seen it! " — catlovergirl
The Proposal: While still in bed, Luke (Ed Harris) asks his much younger girlfriend, Isabel (Julia Roberts), to marry him, explaining that he wants to get it right the second time around.
What You Said: "I liked the empty box he gave her, and instead putting the ring on a spool of thread and sliding it down onto her finger. Short and sweet, but still romantic." — robinepowell
The Proposal: Who says a woman can't propose to the man? Maggie (also Roberts) leaves a string of men at the altar before finally finding — and popping the question to — the one (Richard Gere).
What You Said: "She gives him her "running shoes" and echoes his own words from a conversation months before." — brcarole
The Proposal: Jamie (Colin Firth) learns Portuguese so he can go to the crowded restaurant where Aurelia (Lúcia Moniz) works to propose. She, in turn, reveals that she's been studying English when she replies "yes."
What You Said: "I LOVE LOVE LOVE the proposal in Love Actually with the entire town following Jamie to the restaurant, not to mention one of the most romantic scores EVER playing in the background." — MalTru

Pride & Prejudice
The Proposal: In the pouring rain, Matthew Macfadyen's Mr. Darcy tries to convince Elizabeth (Keira Knightley) he's a changed man, worthy of her love.
What You Said: "Yes, it wasn't the most romantic dialogue, but damn, how can any woman say no to Matthew's bluer-than-blue eyes???" — sue
The Wedding Singer
The Proposal: Robbie (Adam Sandler) serenades Julia (Drew Barrymore) on an airplane with a tune about growing old together.
What You Said: "Yes, cheesy but...I could watch over and over again!" — marsky
