Didn't like it much the first time but Enjoyed it a whole lot more during the second viewing
1 May 2008 | by (Fraggle Rock) – See all my reviews

I saw 'Two Weeks Notice' some years ago and didn't like it much. It seemed like a passable romantic comedy. I mean, the acting was overall good, the story a little old... it just felt like it lacked something. However, after having revisited it today, I actually liked it a lot more than before. Once one is passed the first half hour or so, I think he/she can really enjoy the film.

What makes the first half hour or so annoying is it's dragging pace and Hugh Grant. His character just comes across as extremely needy and perhaps it's not Grant's fault but the actor doesn't add anything new to his role. This is the kind of role that made him a star but he seems to have forgotten that there are other genres outside romantic comedy. Perhaps he wants to stick to a safer formula but I wonder how long people will continue watching him in the same kind of films playing similar roles. Anyway, after this initial half hour, he does decent in the acting department as he shows George's growth. We see his He shares a good chemistry with Sandra Bullock.

'Two Weeks Notice' belongs to Sandra Bullock and I think it is her acting and her character that make this film more likable. The woman is naturally beautiful and her comic timing is impeccable and it is no surprise that she's known as one of the finest comedy actresses (and she's great in other roles too). she has some of the best lines and she delivers them with complete ease.

I also loved the dialogues. There are some hilarious one-liners such as the barking chilli dog and the bobcat pretzel. After the dragging initial reel, the story moves at a good enough pace and gets funnier. Lawrence's screenplay and direction are good as the end result looks polished but some editing could have helped to tighten it up.

Overall, I think this funny film deserves a second chance as I liked it a lot more during the second viewing. I'm glad that I chose to watch it again.
