Two Weeks Notice (2002)



Critic Consensus: Though Two Weeks Notice has nothing new to add to the crowded genre, Hugh Grant and Sandra Bullock make the movie a pleasant, if predictable, sit.

Critic Reviews for Two Weeks Notice

All Critics (123) | Top Critics (33)

Structurally, the film's off-kilter. The start of the relationship is rushed through, while the supposedly crucial notice period feels increasingly directionless. Which leaves the comic strand - and that, by and large, delivers.

This is the kind of movie where the big scene is a man shot out of a cannon into a vat of ice cream.

Predictable romantic comedy.

Can't withstand the utter pits of romantic comedy trash.

Cinema Crazed

Two icons of romantic comedy team up for the first time, and the result is a fizzle.

Bullock and Grant, like the viewing audience, appear to be waiting for some memorable payoff that Lawrence fails to come close to delivering.

Audience Reviews for Two Weeks Notice

Two Weeks Notice is basically saved by the really good actors in it, especially Grant and Bullock. There are some laughs here and there, but there's nothing remarkable about the film so this is standard rom-com entry.

This was before I found Sandra Bullock attractive. Hugh Grant is serviceably dapper. Oddly enough, years after I saw it for the first time, I still remember the beginning and ending with Lucy ordering enough Chinese food to feed a small village to reveal it was only for one, then at the end, for two. Aww.

Nice chemistry between Hugh Grant and Sandra Bullock. I like the relationship between Bullock's character and her parents; how she couldn't escape the noose, er, I mean, the umbilical cord. I like the message: you can do a lot of good with a vision and a lot of money. I wish Grand and Bullock would do more together because their quirky styles really gel, in my opinion.
