Margaret Tate's (Sandra Bullock) work visa for the United Sates has just been denied, meaning she will be deported to her own country of Canada and lose her job as a publishing executive. Hoping to leap the immigration hurtle, Margaret claims to be engaged to her hen-pecked assistant (Ryan Reynolds). Although she is able to bully him into her deception, the proposal proves to be the beginning of a new set of problems.
