The 2009 Romantic Comedy
starring Sandra Bullock
and Ryan Reynolds
Margaret Tate (Sandra Bullock) is a bitchy, domineering executive editor-in-chief for a publishing company who runs her poor assistant Andrew Paxton (Ryan Reynolds) ragged and generally treats all her employees like crap. However, she gets called in by her superiors and discovers that she is being deported back to Canada. To fix this, she tells them she is marrying Andrew and that they plan to fly up to Alaska for his grandmother's 90th birthday to tell the family. Andrew, of course, vehemently tries to back out of the plan but she insists that they will be married for a short while and then get a divorce. Seizing the opportunity, Andrew makes her promise to publish his book and promote him before agreeing to the charade.
The two fly up to Alaska and meet the family. Over the course of the trip, the two slowly get to know each other better and realize they are developing feelings for one another.
Currently one of Sandra Bullock's highest grossing films. Generally regarded as funny and easy to watch.
