If I was interested in Heather Burns other than eye candy, I would have probably focused on the Miss Congeniality movies. But, in honor of her birthday, I pick a Hugh Grant film just because I like him.
If you are looking for a cute romantic movie, you can never go wrong with Hugh Grant, who is teamed in this one with Sandra Bullock as an environmental lawyer who becomes Grant's legal eagle and mommy. Yes, she gets more than she bargains for and finally gives notice - hence, the title. In typical Grant style, he spends the rest of the movie trying to get her back. Sure, his movies follow the same formula, but they are just fun to watch.
Beside that, you get a great Joni Mitchell song (Big Yellow Taxi) as part of an outstanding soundtrack - another feature of Grant's films.
