Storyline Heading
When high-powered book editor Margaret faces deportation to her native Canada, the quick-thinking exec declares that she's actually engaged to her unsuspecting put-upon assistant Andrew, who she's tormented for years. He agrees to participate in the charade, but with a few conditions of his own. The unlikely couple heads to Alaska to meet his quirky family and the always-in-control city girl finds herself in one comedic fish-out-of-water situation after another. With an impromptu wedding in the works and an immigration official on their tails, Margaret and Andrew reluctantly vow to stick to the plan despite the precarious consequences.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy - This is a romantic comedy mainly targeted at women, but it should have widespread appeal to adult audiences, in particular couples. Fans of stars Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds should be pleased. Some suggestive humor make the film inappropriate for kids, who wouldn't be interested anyhow.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Average The Proposal is a standard-order, by-the-book romantic comedy that offers nothing remotely fresh or new while following a formula even neophytes know by heart. For some people, that's enough.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good 'The Proposal' recycles a plot that was already old when Tracy and Hepburn were trying it out. You see it coming from a great distance away. As it draws closer, you don't duck out of the way, because it is so cheerfully done, you don't mind being hit by it.

USA Today Full Review
Above Average Though it falls short of winning our hearts completely, The Proposal is a serviceable and intermittently funny romance made enjoyable by the sparks between Bullock and Reynolds.
