The Proposal: Funny and Captivating
This movie always made me to smile when I remembered those funny moments of Margaret (Sandra Bullock) and Andrew (Ryan Reynolds). A story that tells about Boss-subordinate relationship (Margaret the Boss and Andrew her assistant), on how he hate her for being so impossible while Margaret see Andrew as underling. The first conflict of the story was when Margaret learned that she is about to be deported to Canada due to expired Visa, but being perfect and keen to anything she just got the idea to declare in the board that she and Andrew has intimate relationship and they will be getting married so there's no problem to make her leave the US, but of course it gets more complicated when the immigration agent suspects that they are committing fraud.
To make the story more interesting Andrew agreed to marry Margaret but in return she need to approve the publishing of Andrew's book. And because they got now the agreement they decided to know each others family so that it was more convincing to the immigration that they are true couple. So the first thing they did was to travel back at Andrew's hometown - Sitka, Alaska. From then on the story got more hilarious, heartrending and so romantic. Margaret just falls for him, not knowing it, and was fascinated by the way how close Andrew's family that she never had. And because of that she realized that hurting his family is not acceptable so she decided to quit on their marriage deal (on their exact wedding day) and confesses that she just used Andrew to got her new Visa.
While Andrew on the other hand was also unaware that he discovered something about Margaret that was lovable and funny that he does not usually she to her. From then on he's falling for her and made him feel at home with Margaret. So when she quits the deal he was so anxious not to let her go, but Margaret was decided and left Alaska to leave back to Canada.
On the final part of this movie, Andrew pursue Margaret back in New York, before she leave to Canada, and made her understand that he was in love with her since they've met. In front of the entire office staff he declared his love for her and kiss. Then on the end they go to the immigration and disclose their engagement, but this time for real..
It was so refreshing to have this kind of movie, and still at this moment while writing and remembering the scenes it made me feel like a Butterfly flew in my stomach...
