Continuity mistake: When Sandra and Hugh are trying to get to the RV, a door opens and Sandra slips. She stands up with the help of Hugh and her skirt is completely clean. But in the next shot there is dirt on her skirt, supposedly from falling. (00:56:45)

Continuity mistake: After the argument in the coffee room following the stapler fight you can see that, when Hugh leaves, the stapler is by the coffee pot next to where Hugh was standing, although Sandra had already taken it to the other side of the counter (where you also see it in the last shot of the scene). (01:21:35)

Continuity mistake: When Lucy is pushing the elevator button to George's penthouse in her bridesmaid dress, she's wearing only one glove. When she's in his closet helping him pick out clothes and giving her 'two weeks notice', she's still only wearing one glove, but now it's on the other hand. (00:25:40)

Continuity mistake: When Lucy is on the ground after being hit by the ball during the tennis match, George is bending over her and there is a man behind him. When the camera changes to a different angle, that person is running towards them to the point where he was standing before. (00:35:10)

Continuity mistake: When up on the roof eating cake, it focuses on Lucy speaking. In one shot she lowers her fork to her plate, then she raises her hand to her face quickly. But then in the next shot her hand is down by her plate and she once again raises her hand, now holding her fork. (00:37:15)

Continuity mistake: At the Pediatric benefit when Hugh and Sandra are talking, it begins to rain (watch Hugh's jacket shoulder). In the next shot it isn't, and then it is again shortly afterwards. (01:10:45)

Continuity mistake: In the beginning scene where Sandra Bullock is lying down to block the destruction of the building the crane operator is wearing shorts. When there is a close-up of his lower leg and foot pushing on the gas, you see long jeans. This goes back and forth several times. (00:03:30)

Continuity mistake: Near the end of the movie, Sandra Bullock goes to Hugh Grant's place (when he is playing strip chess) to talk to him. The clock outside the hotel stays at the same time (1:40) between her going into the hotel and leaving the hotel. (01:15:05)

Other mistake: In the final scene, George is "shocked" how small the apartment is, but he shouldn't be surprised since he has been there before (when he went there for cake). (01:37:50)

Suggested correction: When they are eating cake on the roof it is at Lucy's parent's apartment, not hers. So he is really shocked when he is in her apartment.

I apologize, for some reason I thought it was her apartment.

Not so - in an earlier scene she mentions how she's 'back at her parents' house' (while phoning the Chinese place). She lived there prior to being given a nice apartment by George as a perk of the job. After resigning, she moved back there. Therefore the goof is valid.

No, it's her parent's apartment. She says she is staying there, you see her there with her Dad in the morning, George says "thank goodness your parents went to the movies. We'd never have all squeezed in" and she's ordering Chinese food from the same place she ordered from when she said she was staying at her parents. George may not have gone in when they got the cake, or he might not have noticed the size.

Continuity mistake: When Hugh and Sandra are on his yacht, while she is walking down the stairs she spills white wine, but in the next shot she has red wine. (00:42:55)

Continuity mistake: When George and Lucy are talking on the rooftop, their hair blows in the wind continuously. Each closeup, however, there is no wind and their hair is completely still and coiffed. (00:36:55)

Continuity mistake: At the end, when Sandra Bullock and Hugh Grant are about to kiss, at first her head is leaning to the right, but in the next shot it is leaning to the left even though they haven't kissed or supposedly moved. (01:30:30)

Continuity mistake: When Sandra Bullock falls down on the way to the motor home, to go to the bathroom, she gets dirt on her tennis skirt. The amount of dirt on her skirt changes from shot to shot.


Continuity mistake: When Hugh Grant and Alicia Witt are in the elevator with the elderly couple, they elevator stops to let Alicia off, but Hugh pulls her back on. The elevator supposedly continues on up to Hugh's apartment, but it never moves. You can see it moving BEFORE the first stop, but never again. (01:12:35)

Continuity mistake: When Hugh Grant is visiting his brother, after he tells him they are tearing down the community center, the brother changes into his pyjamas. He puts on the pyjama top and it is unbuttoned, then the camera changes to Hugh Grant, then goes back to the brother within a few seconds. When it goes back the buttons are done up. (01:05:05)

Continuity mistake: When Lucy and her parents are talking on the street, Lucy says "Wait a minute, our community centre! My community centre!" When and after she says this, the Forbes magazine she has goes from being under her arm, to in her left hand, then into her right hand between shots. (00:04:55)

George Wade: And did you tell Billy you loved him? Did you say, 'Billy, I love you'?

More quotes from Two Weeks Notice

Trivia: In the trailers (on the radio in the UK, anyway), there's a bit with Hugh Grant saying something like "This is no job for a grown up - drinking without being responsible...actually, it doesn't sound that bad". This was never in the finished film.
