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.
Benjamin Barry is an advertising executive and ladies' man who, to win a big campaign, bets that he can make a woman fall in love with him in 10 days. Andie Anderson covers the "How To" beat for "Composure" magazine and is assigned to write an article on "How to Lose a Guy in 10 days." They meet in a bar shortly after the bet is made.
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 ...

Before you came into my life I could make all kinds of decisions, now I can't, I'm addicted, I have to know what you think!
[holds up cufflinks]
What do you think?
George, I think you are the most selfish human being on the planet.

Two Weeks Notice is a charming romantic comedy. Hugh Grant and Sandra
Bullock are perfect for each other. It's about this lawyer who fights for what she believes in. Then she's hired by the very people she is fighting against. This is one of the funniest movies I have ever seen. The writing is wonderful... Using lines like "You are the most selfish person on the planet!!!" "Now that's just silly, have you met everyone on the planet?" Also "Do you know what I like even
better than chess?" "Pokemon?" Those are lines that have such unexpected
answers you can't help but laugh! Best romantic comedy I've seen in a long
