Plot

Explores the question of whether it's ever too late to say 'I love you'. The story revolves around Lucy Kelson (Bullock), a brilliant but neurotic attorney, and her client (Grant), who is "charming, irresponsible and fabulously wealthy." Witt plays a young Harvard graduate who also represents Grant's character. Bullock stars as Lucy Kelson, Chief Counsel for the 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 (Hugh Grant). 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 five years of calling the shots-on everything from his clothes to his divorce settlements - Lucy Kelson is calling it quits.
 

Comments

No real surprises ... …, but that doesn't make this a bad film -- it is a typical romantic comedy and should be viewed with that in mind. Sandra Bullock seems to have found her forte in comedy –, this small movie with an obviously large budget was produced by her and has many of the same elements of her other hit production `Miss Congeniality' –, including the same writer: Marc Lawrence (who also directed this time around). Since the character that Hugh Grant plays is multi-millionaire there would be an obvious need for expensive production values: the beautiful apartment in New York City, limousines and a private helicopter. However, they do not overwhelm –, they are there because they should be. It is nice the Sandra Bullock's character is not in awe of all the trappings of the ultra-wealthy but instead falls for the man and not the money. This is Sandra and Hugh's film –, they are in every scene and mostly together. However the film could probably have used another comic foil along the lines of Michael Caine's ‘,Mr Vic' in `Miss Congeniality' to relieve the pressure a bit. The music was especially good –, with old standards being re-recorded and used extremely effectively. Ms Bullock and Mr Grant do have good screen chemistry together –, not as great as William Powell and Myrna Loy in the `Thin Man' films or Tracy and Hepburn in their many films together –, but it does work and since this is their first outing together maybe the chemistry will continue to grow if they make more films together.
