(Ryan Reynolds & Sandra Bullock)

Sandra Bullock, Ryan Reynolds and Mary Steenburgen can be seen in The Proposal on M-Net Movies Premiere DStv Channel 103 on September 20 at 20h00.

Female Hollywood stars often see a steep decline in leading roles after the age of 40, but Sandra Bullock, who turned 50 in 2014, remains one of the most “bankable” stars in the business.

Directed by Anne Fletcher in 2009, The Proposal was the number one romantic comedy of 2009, raking in $317-million on a $40-million budget.

Margaret, a top-notch book editor, faces deportation to Canada for violating the rules of her work visa. She promises her assistant a book deal if he marries her, and they set off to meet his family as part of the scam. There they decide to abandon the idea... only to find their hearts won’t comply.
