Our Score
Sandra Bullock plays a liberal lawyer who fights for environmental causes; Hugh Grant is a real estate tycoon who plans to knock down her local community centre in Coney Island to build condominiums - she agrees to work for him if he doesn't go ahead with the demolition. So, the pair are thrown together in true romantic comedy tradition: opposites fighting an attraction. Bullock ends up running the hapless tycoon's life - everything from handling his divorce to choosing his shirts - until she gets fed up, hands in her (two weeks', complete with apostrophe) notice and quits. Will they overcome their differences and find a way back to each other? The formulaic plot is not the main problem here as even the best romantic comedies have genre conventions. It's Bullock and Grant. Both natural, charming actors with the ability to play light comedy, they should have been the dream team, but they're just trying too hard and with little result. All this effort only highlights that what really makes a screen romance work - a magical chemistry between the protagonists à la Tracy and Hepburn - is missing.

Summary

A lawyer catches the attention of a real-estate tycoon, who offers her a job. However, she quickly tires of running the self-absorbed millionaire's life for him and quits - forcing him to pull out all the stops to win her back. Romantic comedy, starring Sandra Bullock, Hugh Grant, Alicia Witt and Dana Ivey.
