Storyline Heading
Lucy establishes an impeccable track record at Wade, despite countless sleepless nights and the ulcer she’s developed. It’s not the job that’s getting to her. It’s George. After months of taking innumerable late-night phone calls and advising him on everything from his clothes to his tennis game to his divorce settlements, an exasperated Lucy gives George her two weeks notice.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Romantic Comedy - I would say there are certainly no surprises here. “Two Weeks Notice” is exactly what it appears to be from the previews. It’s a cute little comedy where Sandra Bullock and Hugh Grant each get to do the type of characters they are so good at playing.

Entertainment Weekly   Full Review
Good "Two Weeks Notice knows what it needs to do for both its stars, does it, and doesn't make a federal case about it. I'd watch these two together again in a New York minute.''

James Berardinelli, Internet Critic  Full Review
Above Average "Two Weeks Notice is too bland to be either genuinely pleasant or aggressively annoying. Like all but the best romantic comedies, it's unthreatening and disposable. ...a movie that is relentlessly inoffensive and completely unoriginal – two qualities that combine to make it only sporadically charming and rarely (if ever) compelling.''

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Good "The first half of the movie is just about perfect, of its kind, and I found myself laughing more than I expected to, and even grinning at a colleague who was one seat over, because we were both appreciating how much better the movie was than it had to be. Then a funny thing happens. The movie sort of loses its way.''

USA TODAY  Full Review
Above Average "Every time the movie looks as if it's going to do nothing but go through the romantic-comedy motions, something amusingly twisted happens.''

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

While these opinions are quite high, the most important thing is that there are no low opinions. "Good" is as low as it gets and there aren't very many of them. With most of the opinions in the "Very Good" to "Excellent" range and no low opinions, I would say Two Weeks Notice is a movie everyone will enjoy, at least to some degree. I'm confident most will find it to be lots of fun and very entertaining.

Cinema Review Prediction: (before moviegoer opinions are collected)
No prediction necessary since we were able to collect opinions early. See above.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Millionaire George Wade (HUGH GRANT) needs a new Chief Counsel.  The charismatic "public face” of the Wade Corporation, one of New York's leading real estate development firms, George has a bad habit of hiring attractive female attorneys with dubious credentials and sleeping with them...until they make a costly mistake and get fired by his stodgy brother Howard (DAVID HAIG), the brains behind the business.

When Howard demands he hire an Ivy League lawyer to serve as Chief Counsel or kiss his stock options goodbye, George turns an unexpected confrontation with passionate environmentalist advocate Lucy Kelson (SANDRA BULLOCK) into a spontaneous job interview.

A brilliant Harvard-educated attorney with a strategic mind and a social conscience, Lucy has no interest in serving the Wade Corporation's agenda – in fact, she's trying to stop George and company from demolishing her neighborhood Community Center and building condos on adjacent land.  When George promises Lucy that he will protect the Community Center and put her in charge of distributing Wade Corp.'s discretionary funds to charitable causes of her choice, she reluctantly agrees to take the job.

As the months pass, Lucy establishes an impeccable track record at Wade, despite countless sleepless nights and the ulcer she's developed.

It's not the job that's getting to her.  It's George.  Fabulously irresponsible and undeniably self-absorbed, he treats her more like a personal assistant than his multi-tasking Chief Counsel – and he can barely choose a tie without her help.   After months of taking innumerable late-night phone calls and advising him on everything from his clothes to his tennis game to his divorce settlements, an exasperated Lucy gives George her two weeks notice. 

But George stubbornly refuses to release Lucy from her iron-clad contract and makes it impossible for anyone else to hire her.  He finally agrees to let her leave – on the condition that Lucy find her own ultra-capable replacement.  Enter June Carter (ALICIA WITT), an ambitious young lawyer with little experience but a keen eye for George.  Before Lucy can arrange a proper interview with June, George offers her the job.  

Unlike Lucy, who ensured that the Wade Corporation used its considerable means for worthy causes, June is an opportunist who makes George feel good about his wealth, power and superficiality.  She's unfazed when Howard reneges on George's commitment to protect Lucy's beloved Community Center.  And she doesn't consider dating the boss to be a conflict of interest.

Meanwhile, liberated from Wade Corporation's 24/7 demands, Lucy shifts her focus back to pro-bono work and unhappily considers life after George.  When she sees June as George's new vivacious Chief Counsel, she realizes her true feelings for him cross the line from the professional to the personal.  Perhaps she's replaced herself all too well.

At the same time, George copes with the incalculable loss of a trusted confidant, a polymath consultant and a touchstone that brings out his best.  For them both – is it ever too late to say, "I love you”?
