A washed up singer is given a couple days to compose a chart-topping hit for an aspiring teen sensation. Though he's never written a decent lyric in his life, he sparks with an offbeat younger woman with a flair for words.
A lonely doctor, who once occupied an unusual lakeside house, begins exchanging love letters with its former resident, a frustrated architect. They must try to unravel the mystery behind their extraordinary romance before it's too late.
Harvard educated lawyer Lucy Kelson, following in the footsteps of her lawyer parents, uses her career for social activism. She hides any sense of femininity behind her work. George Wade is the suave public face of the Manhattan-based Wade Corporation, a development firm that Lucy routinely opposes and whose true head is George's profit-oriented brother, Howard Wade. George, who has a reputation as a lady's man, has had as his legal counsel a series of beautiful female lawyers with questionable credentials, they who have more primarily acted as his casual sex partners. Needing a real lawyer, he offers Lucy the job of his legal counsel on a chance meeting. Despite warnings from her parents in working for the "enemy", Lucy, who has no intention of being the latest in his bed partners, accepts the job as she feels she can do more good from the inside, and as George, as part of the job offer, promises not to demolish a community center in a heritage building as part of a development ...Written by

However, immediately when they get to the apartment roof, you can see the crane below about 1/2 a mile up the beach, and the tower is over a mile away now. See more »

When you go to see a film like Two Weeks Notice, you shouldn't expect a brilliant academy award worthy story, nor a action packed thriller, or scary horror movie. You expected a, well, chick flick... I use that term as I lack a better one.
With that said, Two Weeks Notice delivers what is expected of it. It has it's one liners, Sandra and Hugh both give good preformances, and its an overall "awww, aint that cute" film.
I do appreciate the atmosphere of Two Weeks Notice, and also state that it is worth the 9.00 dollars to see it, if you know what your looking for... I mean, come on... This is not the next Bond film here!!!
Overall, well made! I'm glad to be able to give this little sucker a:
