Movie Info

A woman finds herself attempting to foil one office romance while debating if she should take a chance on another in this romantic comedy. Lucy Kelton (Sandra Bullock) is a top-flight attorney who has risen to the position of Chief Legal Counsel for one of New York's leading commercial real estate firms, the Wade Corporation. However, Lucy's job has one significant drawback -- George Wade (Hugh Grant), the eccentric and remarkably self-centered head of the firm. George seems entirely incapable

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.

Instead of using George and Lucy's most obvious differences to ignite sparks, Lawrence desperately looks elsewhere, seizing on George's haplessness and Lucy's personality tics.

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.

Hugh Grant and Sandra Bullock basically play their patented movie selves in this overly familiar romantic comedy about corporate greed, social responsibility, personal promises and budding love.

Light, fluffy, and enjoyable.

Much of the reason for the film's success is down to the pairing of Grant and Bullock, and it's easy to see how the film could have been a leaden disaster in the hands of blander actors.

Hugh Grant's witty delivery of throwaway lines and Sandra Bullock's clumsy sincerity appeal to me. I hope their first on-screen pairing isn't their last.

Comédia romântica formulaica e sem graça que traz Grant e Bullock repetindo seus tipos habituais. Os clichês se amontoam e irritam.

Cinema em Cena

Despite Bullock's comic flair and Hugh Grant's charming turn as a bumbling billionaire, they can't carry this romantic comedy just on witty repartee.

They may not be history's most predictable pairing but Bullock and Grant turn out to be a natural fit, in an Odd Couple kind of way.

'Es la típica película romántica que se puede disfrutar si se entra a la sala sabiendo que se van a ver clichés y el típico final feliz'

March 3, 2003 Full Review Source: Moviola

Lo que falla es el elemento de "chispa"; no existe esa tensión sexual típica entre entre los dos protagonistas; y ése es un hueco irreparable.

Featherweight romantic comedy has a few nice twists in a standard plot ... and the charisma of Hugh Grant and Sandra Bullock.

Something of a disaster -- it isn't funny and, though both stars try their best, there's precious little actual story there for them to work with.

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.
