Two Weeks Notice is a 2002 romantic comedy film starring Hugh Grant and Sandra Bullock from Warner Bros. Pictures. The movie was written and directed by Marc Lawrence. Upon release, the movie received a successful box office run both in the United Statesmarker and globally.

Plot

Lucy Kelson (Sandra Bullock) is an environmental lawyer in New York Citymarker. George Wade (Hugh Grant) is an immature billionaire real estate tycoon who has almost everything and knows almost nothing. Lucy's hard work and devotion to others contrast sharply with George's world weary recklessness and greed.

Lucy meets George in an attempt to stop the destruction of the Coney Islandmarker community center from her childhood. He attempts to hire her to replace his old Chief Counsel, Amber. She knows of his playboy tendencies, but he promises to protect the community center if she works for him.

She soon finds that what he really requires is advice in all aspects of his life. She becomes his indispensable aide, and he calls her for every little thing. She finally gets fed up with the situation and gives him her two weeks' notice of resignation after he sends her a message of an "emergency" while she is at her friend's wedding, since the emergency is, as she finds out, that he is unable to choose what to wear to an event. He is deeply troubled by her resignation and tries to convince her to stay. He also tries to block her from getting any other jobs, as an attempt to make her stay. He finally gives in and has her train her replacement, the attractive and flirtatious June Carver (Alicia Witt), before she quits. Lucy then gets jealous of June before she leaves.

After she's gone, George realizes that his time with her has really changed him, as he keeps the promise he made to her in the beginning even if it means it costs his company millions. Meanwhile, in her new job, Lucy is missing him terribly. He goes in search for her, and they confess their feelings for each other.

Cast



Big Yellow Taxi

Counting Crows', featuring Vanessa Carlton (back-up vocals), cover of the song is featured on the soundtrack to the movie. Originally the song was a hidden track on the band's 2002 album Hard Candy and did not include Vanessa Carlton until it was to be featured in the movie after catching the ear of a movie producer. New releases of the album listed it as a track with her added, as with her in the video, although Counting Crows and Vanessa Carlton did not appear in the video together nor record the song together (therefore is not a "duet"). This song became the band's only Top 20 single in the UKmarker, peaking at number 13. This version slightly changed Joni Mitchell's original lyrics to describe when the eponymous taxi "took my girl away."

Missing apostrophe

Lynne Truss, in the introduction to her book Eats, Shoots & Leaves, cites the title of this film as a sign of ignorance and indifference in the matter of punctuation. Indeed, the inside flap at the back of the original hardback edition features a photograph of the author in front of a poster for the film, holding a marker pen poised over the place where the apostrophe should be.
