Two Weeks Notice (2002)
Lucy Kelson (Sandra Bullock) is an
environmental lawyer in New York City.
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
contrasts sharply with George's world weary
recklessness and greed.
Lucy meets George in an attempt to stop the
destruction of the Coney Island 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
sent her a message of an "emergency" while
she was at her friend's wedding. The
emergency was he couldn't choose what to
wear to an event. He is deeply troubled by
this 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 gave in and has her train her
replacement, the attractive and flirtatious
June Carver (Alicia Witt), before she quits.
Lucy 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,
she's missing him terribly. He goes in
search for her and they confess their
feelings for each other.
