The Proposal Movie Plot

Margaret is taken aback when she is informed that the renewal of her visa got canceled and she might have to go back to Canada. This meant she would have to leave her hard-earned job in her company, and she didn’t want that to happen.

To avoid deportation, she devises a plan. She forces her assistant Andrew Paxton played by Ryan Reynolds, into marrying her, hoping to get permanent citizenship.

Andrew is abused by Margaret at work, and now she is forcing him to marry her for her benefit! She tries manipulating him by stating that all his hard work as her assistant will go in vain if she gets deported, and he’ll have to start from scratch, and he’ll never become an editor at this rate.

Andrew had joined the company with a dream of becoming an editor to publish his book, and when Margaret promised to help him after their marriage, he agreed to get married to her.

Andrew and Margaret then go to visit Andrew’s hometown, Sitka, Alaska. There he introduces Margaret to his family and friends and announces his engagement in front of his peers.

During her stay at Sitka, Margaret starts to feel overwhelmed by Andrew’s family as she has been living her life on her own since she was sixteen after her parent’s death. Both the characters open up eventually, and their plotted marriage plans start to turn into a somewhat honest bonding.

Andrew’s family wanted them to get married there, and arrangements were soon made for the same. Meanwhile, Gilbertson, an official from the Immigration office, also shows up in town. He had been suspecting the pair of faking their marriage to avoid Margaret’s deportation.

On the day of the wedding, Margaret couldn’t keep up with her selfish plan, and she confessed everything in front of the attending guests, which included Gilbertson too. After the event, Gilbertson gave her a day to leave for Canada.

As the perfect climax to a Romantic comedy, Andrew realizes that he has fallen for Margaret for real, and this makes him rush to her, and they both reconcile after a kiss. A generic romantic comedy was ending, but always satisfying indeed.
