LOVE THIS MOVIE

I think this movie is amazing probably because of Sandra bullock.
age 13+

Good movie but more for teens and up.

This movie has some slightly adult subjects and content. Under 13 needs to be supervised.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (9 ):

Two Weeks Notice is not a great romantic comedy. For many of us, romantic comedies are like peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, providing comfort food and simple consistency in a messy world; we relax and enjoy the familiar experience, knowing that there will be no discomforting surprises or soul-searching involved. But in this movie, there are no real sparks between leads Sandra Bullock and Hugh Grant, some of the humor you can foresee (and start wincing at) long before it arrives, and, if you have seen the preview, you have a pretty good sense of where the movie is going.

Where the comedy of this movie is consistently strong, it is the romance that is even less believable than the embarrassing baseball game and the unnecessary bathroom scene in the recreational vehicle. Neither Lucy nor George seem entirely human, with their simple characters writ large but they have a lovely ability to laugh at and with one another, so perhaps those romantic sparks are not really necessary. After all and caveats aside, none of the movies shortcomings will really matter to those with a craving for something sweet and light.
