    Enter Sandra Bullock and her humor. She's a pro-bono, civil attorney who often takes a stand and protests against Hugh Grant's major company. She goes to him to help save a community center on Coney Island and he offers her the job...because he's not attracted to her.
    She takes the job and is at his beck and call for over 18 months before she goes bananas and gives her two weeks notice. In that time, she must find a replacement and then she has to fight off her feelings of love for Hugh.
    He makes a schmuck of himself by not putting his foot down in regards to saving the community center and is almost seduced by his new attractive attorney, but in the end realizes his love for Sandra.

Lucy Kelson (Sandra Bullock) lives with her attorney parents Ruth and Larry (Dana Ivey and Robert Klein). She is an environmentalist attorney from Harvard and is focused on her mission to save the Coney Island Community Center near her hometown for its architectural history (from the Wade Corporation developers who are set to develop it).

George Wade (Hugh Grant) is the millionaire who owns the Community Center and is the head of the Wade Corporation along with his brother Howard Wade (David Haig). George is also a womanizer who has hired innumerable women in his office who are not worthy and so have been thrown out by Howard. Wade's brothers are giant property developers and are out to modernize the Community Center.

But Lucy wouldn't let that happen. While George is interviewing women for the post of attorney for his company, Lucy visits him to turn him against the demolition of the Community Center.

Impressed with Lucy, he agrees not to destroy the Center but on the condition that she works in his company as Chief Counsel. Lucy accepts the deal but soon realizes that her boss is a selfish ungrateful irresponsible playboy. Little did she know that she would have to aid her boss in daily chores that of choosing a tie to picking up stationery, and she literally becomes a personal assistant to George. George does not hesitate to call her up at odd hours of midnight for his minor needs and working like that for a year, Lucy becomes indispensable for George. His need for her gets comically obsessive. But Lucy is extremely distressed and a day arrives when she finally decides to give up the job. She gives a '2 Weeks Notice' to George in a bid to quit office. But George asks her to find a replacement. Lucy manages to find a replacement: a beautiful lawyer from Harvard - June Carter (Alicia Witt).

Just as Lucy is all set to leave she realizes her love for George. Does George feel the same for her? Lucy now feels jealous of June who tries to go close to George. George too loves Lucy.

Lucy Kelson (Bullock) is an attorney who wants to save the world. George Wade (Grant) is a hapless billionaire who needs an assistant to help him with EVERYTHING from choosing ties to choosing the proper mattress. Together these two collide, banter, lock horns and make us once again ask the age old question- Do opposites really attract?
