There's something indescribably appealing about escaping into the world of a movie—particularly those proposal scenes from our favorite romantic comedies. Sure, your own real-life proposal will be just as memorable (if not more) as a big-screen engagement moment, but while you're waiting for your own handsome leading man to greet you on bended knee with a sparkling engagement ring, imagining yourself in the place of one of Hollywood's leading ladies is perfectly acceptable.
From the completely out-of-this-world proposals, like Noah's (Ryan Gosling) heart-wrenching plea for Allie (Rachel McAdams) to stay with him in The Notebook, to the seemingly ordinary ones that still have the ability to bring tears to our eyes, including Mark Darcy's (Colin Firth) simple yet sweet request in Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, we rounded up 25 movie proposals that will leave you searching through your stacks of DVDs or impatiently queuing up your favorite rom-com on Netflix.
Along with the crazy-romantic movie proposals, there are, of course, just the downright cringeworthy. Remember crazy-eyed Liv (Kate Hudson) barging into her boyfriend's office to demand a proposal in Bride Wars? There are also the super-sweet and quirky moments that really happen only in the movies, like Robbie's (Adam Sandler) PA-system proposal to Julia (Drew Barrymore) in The Wedding Singer.
