“The Proposal” focuses on an arranged marriage, this time between a demanding female boss (Bullock) faced with deportation who agrees to a sham engagement and marriage with her young stressed out and henpecked male assistant (Reynolds) to avoid being sent back to Canada.Margaret Tate (Sandra Bullock) is the executive editor-in-chief of a book publishing company, Colden Books. All of her workers, including her assistant Andrew Paxton (Ryan Reynolds), hate her, and she fires a senior editor, Bob Spaulding (Aasif Mandvi) because he is unable to get an author named Frank be interviewed by Oprah. After learning she is being deported to Canada, she forces Andrew to marry her, as his future is tied to hers. When the government investigates, Mr. Gilbertson (Denis O’Hare) informs them that they will undergo rigorous testing to prove that the marriage is not fraudulent. Andrew grudgingly accepts, under the condition that he is promoted to the position of editor and his manuscript be published. He also forces Margaret to propose nicely to him on her knees in the streets of New York, and to allow him to tell his parents they are getting married.
