A pushy boss forces her young assistant to marry her in order to keep her visa status in the U.S. and avoid deportation to Canada.


I am already failing at watching a movie a week. It's already the end of January and all I've watched is this movie and re-watched 'Crazy Rich Asians' for the millionth time. Sighs. 

Okay - so here we follow Margaret who is a tough-ass boss and her assistant Andrew. Andrew and the rest of the office hate her. She is tough and mean and cold. Andrew has ambitions to take to be an editor someday, so he is sticking around. Margaret is about to face deportation and if she leaves she loses her she comes up with an idea to bribe Andrew to marry her and give him the job of the editor. To keep up with appearances, Margaret joins Andrew to visit his parents in Alaska. 

I love both of these actors so I'm shocked it took me THIS long (it came out in 2009) to watch it. Eee. #badfan. 

This was is a typical Romantic Comedy mixed with Hallmark Bad-Bitch-Boss. She is cold from heartbreaks and he is a kind soul. He defrosts her and they fall in love. 

Betty White was in here and I loved her. She is always a gem. 

This was funny with some cringe moments that make you laugh even harder. 

A fun movie for when you need to laugh. It was pretty predictable though. 

3 stars.

We only watched this last year. I don't remember it coming out ever.

Jen, I remember when it came out. It was not for me. I don't think it did well in theaters.
