In this dramatic romantic comedy, Sandra Bullock plays Margaret Tate, a hard working business woman who is at risk of being deported back to Canada. Reluctant to go, she forces her assistant Andrew Paxton who is played by Ryan Reynolds, to marry her for her visa. He agrees, but only as long as she follows a few of his requests too, including Margaret needing to meet his family in Alaska. With an immigration officer following them closely, they must work together to ensure that they get married without a hitch. This movie was released in 2009 and was directed by Anne Fletcher, screenplay by Pete Chiarelli.

After violating the terms of her work visa, book editor, Margaret Tate (Sandra Bullock), is forced to move back to Canada. After some quick thinking, she tells the government that she is engaged to her assistant Andrew Paxton (Ryan Reynolds). Andrew agrees to this “proposal” but first demands Margaret to publish his novel after their marriage. The “happy” couple fly to Sitka, Alaska to drop the news to Andrew’s family, where they then decide to get married in Alaska. Throughout the trip, Margaret and Andrew’s relationship blossoms, leading both of them to develop an attraction with one another. I absolutely loved this movie. It was funny, but it still managed to retain the romantic atmosphere.

This was a very funny movie. I enjoyed Sandra Bullock's acting. She really was the type of boss that made your life impossible, but deep down she had a soft spot and showed it.
Betty White was excellent and the scene with Sandra Bullock had me laughing so much tears were coming out of my eyes.
We need more movies like this.

Amusing enough romantic comedy, although some cringe-worthy scenes. Cuut that the Canadian plays an American, and the American plays a Canadian (not very well).

I am not getting in that boat!
Fine, see you in three days.
You know I can't swim!
Hence... the boat.

Why are you panting?
Cause I've been running.
From Alaska?

Why didn't you tell me you're some kind of Alaskan Kennedy?
We were in the middle of talking about you... for the last 3 years.
