What to know

critics consensus

Sally Field gives it her all, but this excessively maudlin family drama feels like it takes Two Weeks to finish. Read critic reviews

Critic Reviews for Two Weeks

All Critics (26) | Top Critics (13) | Fresh (5) | Rotten (21)

  • An awkward hybrid of earnest weepiness and bouncy lightheartedness.

    April 3, 2007 | Full Review…
  • Field looks appropriately wiped out. Although given how brittle, awkward, and completely uninteresting her younger co stars are, she could just be exasperated -- she's doing all the lifting.

    March 16, 2007 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • You will have to like Sally Field, you will have to really like Sally Field, to sit through Two Weeks.

    March 15, 2007 | Full Review…
  • The movie's warm advocacy of hospice, with all the dignity such end-of-life care provides, does real, influential good.

    March 7, 2007 | Rating: B- | Full Review…
  • The well-intentioned screenplay is all over the map, with many scenes too truncated to go anywhere dramatically or emotionally. Is a cancer movie that leaves you dry-eyed an oxymoron?

    March 3, 2007 | Rating: 2/6 | Full Review…
  • There is much to like in this poignant movie about those who leave this life and those left behind, but Two Weeks never quite pulls everything off.

    March 2, 2007 | Rating: 2.5/4

Audience Reviews for Two Weeks

  • Sep 01, 2009
    Sally Field, Julianne Nicolson, Ben Chaplin, Clea DuVall, Glenn Howerton Four siblings rush home to say a last goodbye to their very sick mother. When she hangs on, they find themselves trapped together for two weeks. Through laughter and tears, they come to terms with the tragedies we all must face and rediscover the joy we find in each other. The film chronicles the Bergmans' alternately heartbreaking and hilarious struggles, intercut with Anita's own reflections on her life and her family. What happens to a family when the one person who holds it together can't hold on anymore? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Sally Field is amazing. She absolutely breaks my heart in this movie. Anyone who has had a close member pass away from cancer like myself just recently, can relate to this story. This movie takes you to where many of us have been when they are all coming together to say goodbye to a loved one. This movie will have you back and forth from tears to laughter. Sally field is one who never disappoints with another brilliant performance. A must see.

    A brilliant and touching movie! Sally Field is simply great. Ben Chaplin and Tom Cavanagh are fantastic as well. The story plot centralizes around a family of four who are dealing with their mother's dying. Great connection of family, kinship, and the bond reaffirmed between siblings. They (altogether) deal with the decline of their mother's health, and the grief surrounded in laying her to rest in scattering her ashes. Memorable scenes: 1) The grocery store, where the boys are buying stuff and they get thrown out. 2) The siblings are debating whether to carry through with scattering their mother's ashes, one by one, they work through it.

    Very sad movie. Death is difficult. Especially when it is your mom and the rock that holds the family together. Great cast! It's a tearjerker so get the kleenex ready. Not all depressing though since it had a few laughs as well.

    Sally as always is great but the movie is a downer and the rest of the cast is only average.
