Opposites don't just attract - they hilariously banter, fuss, feud and collide when SANDRA BULLOCK plays an activist lawyer and HUGH GRANT is the eccentric tycoon who hires her in this romantic-comedy romp from the writer of Miss Congeniality DVD Features:Additional Scenes:Two new scenesAudio Commentary:Feature-length audio commentary with branching gags by Sandra Bullock, Hugh Grant and Writer Marc LawrenceDocumentary:Visit the stars, moviemakers and New York City with "HBO First Look: The Making of 'Two Weeks Notice'"Filmographies:Cast/Director Film HighlightsInteractive MenusScene AccessTheatrical Trailer
Although Sandra Bullock and Hugh Grant display little on-screen romantic chemistry in Two Weeks Notice
, by having them do what they do best the film manages to work around the missing key ingredient. Bullock is on top form as a bumbling but clever woman who is left ashore by her eco-warrior boyfriend and begins to work (against her better judgement) for Grant, the well-spoken and charming yet inept public face of a multi-million-pound building empire. Although sparks conspicuously fail to fly between them, the two make for genial pals and, as a result, the fact that little romance is evident until the end is actually a bonus.
It would be easy to dismiss this as just another Hollywood star vehicle, a formulaic rom-com that could have been produced anytime in the last 50 years or so. But it is impossible to deny that, although offering nothing new, the script does at least work well. In casting the stars exactly to type, making no social comment and leaving the audience happily gorged on feel-good vibes by the end, if nothing else Two Weeks Notice at least offers universal appeal. --Nikki Disney
