Two Weeks Notice by Marc Lawrence, 2002 (PG-13)

with Sandra Bullock (The Heat, The Blind Side), Hugh Grant (Did You Hear About The Morgans?, Love Actually, Cloud Atlas), Alicia Witt, Robert Klein, Dana Ivey, David Haig, Heather Burns, Dorian Missick (Rachel Getting Married)

Millionaire real estate developer George Wade (Hugh Grant) doesn't make a move without Lucy Kelson (Sandra Bullock), his multitasking chief counsel and virtual right arm. But after a year of calling the shots, Lucy is giving her two weeks' notice. It seems Lucy's finally free of George and his 24-hour requests, which included everything from taking care of George's clothing to handling his divorce settlements. But George has other ideas.

One of my favorite comedy, by the same director as "Did you hear about the Morgans?" and "Music and Lyrics". It made we want to order Chinese before I landed in the US, the way Sandra Bullock does it. Since then, I never managed to order like her: "number 12, and then two number 4, one number 7, oh and also a number 20." "For two?" "No, it's for one..." Her interaction with Hugh Grant is irresistible, specially because he is, and she doesn't like him. Well I guess until a certain point. It made me laugh a lot. The dialogues between the environmentalist and the real estate owner (mostly clueless) are punchy, right on with the concerns of our time, which ads up to the positive feeling I have about this movie. Watch it!
