Two Weeks Notice

Genre: Romance, Comedy; Starring: Sandra Bullock, Hugh Grant, Dana Ivey, Robert Klein, Alicia Witt; Director: Marc Lawrence; Author: Marc Lawrence; Release Date Wide: 12/20/2002; Runtime (in minutes): 105; MPAA Rating: PG-13; Distributor: Warner Bros.

Romantic-comedy formula rears its pretty head, this time in the form of Bullock as a supposedly plain, granola-chomping lawyer who takes a job with Manhattan corporate giant Grant (doing his usual lovable British commitmentphobe) to stop his company from tearing down a beloved community center. The darling duo makes perfectly pleasant work of ripping off such chick-flick forerunners as The American President (activist woman falls for the man she’s fighting) and The Wedding Planner (man helps uptight, workaholic woman loosen up, complete with drunken-confession scene). The problem? Our only proof that these two belong together is that they’re stuck in a predictably standard plot that can lead to only one possible conclusion.
