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.
