I was hoping to indulge in a good romantic comedy, but sadly Two Weeks Notice did not do the job. I had high hopes with Hugh Grant and Sandra Bullock and since it was an early 2000s film, but I just did not enjoy it. Honestly, it wasn’t very funny or swoony.
Sandra Bullock is one of my favorite actresses. This role seemed quirky and cute like her usual picks, but then the story just got worse and worse. There was no build-up as to why they “fell in love.” It just seemed very forced and a bit stupid. Why was she so jealous of the girl she hired to take her job? What about him was she attracted to?
I just didn’t understand the flow of events. It had a story with good potential, but the execution didn’t do it justice. It made it supremely cheesy (which I am okay with) and it just didn’t provide any sort of magic that a romantic comedy should produce.
Bottom Line: Two Weeks Notice was a huge let-down. It didn’t provide any magic that is expected of a romantic comedy. It wasn’t a bore or anything, I just felt the story didn’t have good flow and didn’t really give you enough information to believe their feelings for each other.
