Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: In the deathbed drama Two Weeks, Sally Field creates an agonizing portrait of a middle-aged American everywoman in the final stages of ovarian cancer.
Rotten: With Sally Field as the cancer-ridden mom and the combined talents of Ben Chaplin, Julianne Nicholson and Tom Cavanagh surrounding her, pic veers unsteadily between melodrama and light comedy, with no confidence in either.
Rotten: An ineffective would-be tear-jerker that proves the adage 'dying is easy, comedy is hard.'
Rotten: While life is known to stumble across humor at the most inopportune of moments, Stockman's story strains for irreverence at every turn, and the results serve to undercut those potentially more stirring moments.
Being a movie buff, it is rare when I can't finish a film. This one hit home and you should know going in this will tear you up.
Two weeks, a well deserved rental
Considering the film's dark subject this is actually quite an uplifting and comedic look at the passing of someone so close. I honestly had moments where I was almost in tears and others where I laughed out loud. Thats all I ask for when renting a movie from the store, to be emotionally moved. A unique film that I totally recommend you to watch but just go in with the mentality that this is an indie film for a quite late night on your laptop and you won't be disappointed. Definitely gonna add it to my collection !
Even though the subject matter of the film is a tough one to watch, it was really well done. Sally Fields was exceptional and so was the supporting cast. If you've wondered how tough it is for a family to deal with the last days of a dying relative, this movie is about as close as it gets. Watch it if you can; it's definitely worth seeing.
