Two Weeks Notice
Entertainment: +4
Acceptability: -2

In this romantic comedy, Lucy Kelson (Sandra Bullock) is an intelligent but neurotic attorney who defends the ?little people? by taking on the ?big people.? She has an ulcer, eats a lot when she is down and doesn?t sleep much, but her biggest challenge is her new client ? wealthy, self-centered George Wade (Hugh Grant) who calls her all hours of the night and can?t even pick out what to wear without her help. She requires that he prevent the Wade Corporation, his brother?s company, from tearing down the community center where Lucy grew up. Eventually, Lucy has had enough and gives George two weeks notice. Wade doesn?t want her to leave and sees to it that no other company hires her before agreeing to let her go if she will find her own replacement, who turns out to be red-headed looker June (Alicia Witt). Lucy considers joining her boyfriend on an ocean journey but wasn?t counting on falling in love with George. Threatened with the reality of losing her, George must confront his feelings for Lucy and learn what real love is all about.

In Two Weeks Notice, Sandra Bullock and Hugh Grant bring out the best in each other with a powerful screen presence as a couple. However, the film has too many instances of sexual humor to receive an acceptable rating. George frequently discusses his sex life and admits that most of the female attorneys he has hired have slept with him. He has been married and divorced several times giving the impression that fidelity in marriage is not to be taken seriously. Lucy and George engage in a conversation about how she might perform in the bedroom. Fortunately this movie does not have an overbearing amount of foul language and stands on its own without it. This was an entertaining movie that receives a negative rating because of sexual situations and references.
