two weeks notice

the year: 2002

the genre: comedy

the cast: Sandra Bullock (Lucy Kelson); Hugh Grant (George Wade); Alicia Witt (June Carver)

the plot: Lucy Kelson is chief counsel for Wade Corporation, one of New York City's top commercial real estate developers. She's a brilliant lawyer with a sharp, strategic mind. She also has an ulcer and doesn't get much sleep. It's not the job that's getting to her - it's her millionaire boss, George Wade. Handsome, charming and undeniably self-absorbed, he treats her more like a nanny than a Harvard Law grad and can barely choose a tie without her help. Now, after one year of calling the shots-on everything from his clothes to his divorce settlements - Lucy Kelson is calling it quits.

don't miss: Tony's advice to George about women.

listen for: "You called everyone but Slurpee Heaven." "That is not true. I did call Slurpee Heaven. They didn't want you. Heard you had attitude. Said you weren't "Slurpee" material."

did you know: the house George's brother lives is actually one of Donald Trump's homes. Trump lent his Westchester home to the production and filmed a cameo for the film.

also listen for: "No offense, but I think it's immoral for one person to acquire that much wealth. How do you sleep at night?" "Well, I have a machine that simulates the sound of the ocean."

extra bonus points: if you know what the grammatically correct movie title would be.

count: how many Number 7's Lucy orders from Mr. Wong during the course of the film.

watch for: George's first attempt at speech writing.
