The Proposal - Disney / Buena Vista (Blu-Ray)
Here comes the bribe...
In another turn of the "fake romance" storyline, a pushy boss (Bullock) forces her young assistant (Reynolds) into marriage, in order to maintain her U.S. Visa status and avoid deportation to Canada.
Margaret Tate (Bullock) terrorizes her publishing house co-workers with her abrasive, take-no-prisoners management style, especially her overworked assistant Andrew Paxton (Reynolds). But when Margaret is threatened with deportation to her native Canada because of an immigration technicality, the quick-thinking exec announces that she and Andrew are engaged to be married. Ambitious Andrew agrees to go along with her scheme if there''s a long-awaited promotion in it for him. Everything is going according to Margaret''s plan, until an overzealous immigration official makes it his business to prove that the couple''s engagement is bogus. To demonstrate her commitment to her new fiancé, Margaret agrees to celebrate the 90th birthday of his colorful grandmother (Betty White) in Alaska. The editrix''s type-A ways put her at odds with her eccentric future in-laws with hilarious consequences, until the Paxtons teach Margaret a thing or two about family.
Sandra Bullock is at her funniest in the fresh, laugh-out-loud romantic comedy THE PROPOSAL. On the verge of being deported and losing the high-powered job she lives for, the controlling Margaret announces she''s engaged to her unsuspecting, put-upon assistant Andrew (Ryan Reynolds). After proposing a few demands of his own, the mismatched couple heads to Alaska where they have four short days to convince his quirky family and a very skeptical immigration agent that their charade is real. Featuring a star-studded supporting cast, including Mary Steenburgen, Craig T. Nelson and the delightfully inappropriate Betty White, this madcap comedy will have you saying "yes" to The Proposal again and again.
