Triple bill of romantic comedies. Jack Nicholson stars in 'Something's Gotta Give' (2003) as an aging music industry executive with a penchant for much younger women. He accompanies his latest girlfriend, Marin (Amanda Peet) to her mother's beach house for a dirty weekend, but things turn awkward when he suffers a heart attack. When he is left in the care of Marin's mother, Erica (Diane Keaton) and a handsome young doctor (Keanu Reeves), a love triangle begins to emerge as both men realise they are in love with Erica. In 'Two Weeks Notice' (2002), high-flying attorney Lucy Kelton (Sandra Bullock) is driven to distraction by her boss, George Wade (Hugh Grant), who just cannot seem to make a decision (day or night) without her input. In a fit of pique she hands in her notice (two weeks), which Wade agrees to on one condition: she must find her replacement. After much searching, Lucy finds her replacement in June Carter (Alicia Witt), a Harvard law graduate who is not only very pretty and capable but also appears to be determined to become Mrs Wade. Lucy begins to wonder whether she should warn her ex-boss - and also realises why she feels so jealous... In 'What Women Want' (2000), hotshot advertising executive Nick Marshall (Mel Gibson) thinks he's God's gift to women and can get anyone he wants from them. After an accident, he discovers that he can hear what women are really thinking about - and is upset that his showing off techniques are not popular with his female colleagues. To make matters worse, his dream of being promoted to a higher position has been thwarted by man-eating, new team member Darcy (Helen Hunt). He does not like this and uses his new-found powers to ruin her by reading her mind and selling her ideas as his own. But his plan soon backfires as she starts to fall in love with him, and there seems to be no way out...
