A pushy boss forces his young assistant to marry her in order to keep her visa status in the U.S. and avoid deportation to Canada.
Betty White almost turned down her role in the film because filming would require her to spend ten weeks away from her golden retriever.
In the scene at Federal Plaza when the camera is on Andrew an Asian woman walks past him in the direction of Margaret. In the next scene the camera is on Margaret and we should see the Asian woman but she is not there.
SPOILER: During the first half of the end credits there are various clips of Mr. Gilbertson (the immigration "detective") interviewing Margaret, Andrew, Ramone (the "stripper"), Grace and Joe (Andrew's mom and dad), and Grandma Annie.
There is an alternate ending to the film in which the plane in which Margaret is going to New York comes back to Sitka Airport and Ryan Reynolds' final speech takes place over there only
