The Proposal

Other mistake: During the sequence where Margaret proposes to Andrew on the street in New York, the same woman in a green sweater walks by three times.

Low Cow

Other mistake: When Margaret and Andrew first walk into the Immigration Office there are a group of extras seated directly to the left of them, in two rows. One of them, a guy with glasses and long black hair, wearing a white shirt with patterns (back row, second from the wall, next to the guy in the light yellow shirt), briefly looks at the camera as Margaret and Andrew walk by.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Magaret is talking to her two bosses, when Andrew knocks at the door, the boss who is on the chair adopts two different positions while listening to her. But he can't within such short time. At first his left hand is pointing at Andrew, showing Andrew not to interfere. Then just after, you can see him on his chair with his legs crossed. Then he returns to his previous position. (00:10:10)

Andrew Paxton: Hence...the boat.

Andrew Paxton: [as Margaret eventually climbs down a ladder.] Congratulations. I'm a hundred years old.

More quotes from The Proposal


Question: I was just wondering why, at the end of the movie, the name of the company changed from Colston to something like Ruiz and Hunt. I mean, Margaret's last name was "Tate" so her leaving shouldn't have caused a name change. (I apologize if the names are incorrect, I've only gotten to watch it once at a friend's house, so the movie isn't readily available for me to check).

Jazaray

Chosen answer: The building is named Ruik and Hunt, the publishing company is Colston, which is housed inside the building. The company never changed names.

Question: Is the landscape around Rockport MA (where the film was shot) really that similar to that around Sitka AK (where the film is set)?

Question: I don't recognise the instant messaging tool used during the office scenes. Is it an actual software product typical of that decade or was it created for the film?
