“The Proposal” is one of the best movies I have ever watched. If you are a romantic movie fan and love a good laugh, then you will enjoy this movie. This movie features Sandra Bullock (Margaret Tate) and Ryan Reynolds (Andrew Paxton) as the two main characters. Margaret is a successful book editor who is being threatened to be deported back to Canada, and Andrew is her assistant seeking a promotion.
In the events of her deportation, she decided to tell the higher ups that she and Andrew were engaged. Margaret told her bosses that they kept it a secret because they didn’t want anyone to judge them or come up with their own opinion based on their work relationship. Margaret and Andrew met with someone from immigration to try to get things sorted out, but the immigration representative was not convinced. He believed they were getting married not because they loved each other, but instead to secure Margaret’s citizenship. With this in mind, the immigration representative requested a meeting after Andrew and Margaret went to Sitka, Alaska to tell Andrew’s family about the engagement and to celebrate Gammy’s 90th birthday.
Andrew was not sure he wanted to go through with this plan because it was illegal to marry someone to keep them from being deported. That is when he proposed receiving a promotion to editor and having his manuscript published. Margaret agreed, only if Andrew went to Sitka and went to the meeting with the immigration representative after the trip. Andrew and Margaret went on the trip to Sitka, where they had many heartfelt memories together and with Andrew’s family. While they were there they decided to get married in the barn where Andrew’s parents were married because it was a tradition in his family.
I do not want to spoil the ending for anyone that might want to watch this movie. However, I will say when Margaret and Andrew travel to Sitka is one of my favorite parts of the movie. This is where their relationship starts to grow out of the hatred stage, and into the loving stage because Margaret only cared about her work and did not let Andrew have time off to visit his family for three years. Overall this is one of my all-time favorite movies, and I highly encourage watching it.
