There hasn't been this mean and belittling a boss since Meryl Streep took it out on her assistants in "The Devil Wears Prada."Trouble for Margaret surfaces when she learns she is to be deported to her native Canada.

To to stay in the United States she concocts a plan to marry her executive assistant Andrew (Ryan Reynolds).

There's one big problem: How can he marry his boss who he despises? Solution: She offers him the promise of a long-awaited promotion.With a suspicious immigration official on their heels, they're off to Sitka, Alaska, to meet his family where they plan to announce their "engagement."In scene after scene, Margaret tries to fit in with the people and ways of Alaska, but on Andrew's turf this proves to be a challenge.

They constantly bicker while pulling off the idea they're in love.

She's truly a fish out of water, which brings some of the most funniest scenes of the movie especially when we add Grammie, (Betty White), Andrew's father, (Craig T.

Nelson) and his mother (Mary Steenburgen).Sure, there's plenty of predictable moments, but the movie comes filled with charm.The chemistry between Reynolds and Bullock helps pull the movie off.

The sarcastic tit-for-tat humor, priceless facial expressions and witty banter between the couple adds to the likability factor of the movie.

Throw a little silliness and the ever perky Grammie to the mix and we have a really cute romantic comedy.The ProposalSTARS: Sandra Bullock and Ryan ReynoldsRATED: PG-13 for sexual content, nudity and languageLENGTH: 107 minutesAT: Regal Franklin Square Stadium 14, Carmike 10, Carmike 8 See archived 'Life' stories » Reader CommentsFrom the editor: You can create your own blog, publish your news and share your photos with the community.
