Six Weeks is a 1982 American drama film directed by Tony Bill and based on the novel of the same name by Fred Mustard Stewart. It stars Dudley Moore and Mary Tyler Moore.

Co-star Katherine Healy was a professional figure skater and a ballerina, both talents demonstrated by her character in the film. Golden Globe-nominated actress and ballet dancer Anne Ditchburn choreographed Healy's dance scenes, as well as appearing on camera as an assistant choreographer.

The film was nominated for two Golden Globe Awards, one for Dudley Moore for Best Score and one for Katherine Healy as Best New Female Star of the Year. However, Mary Tyler Moore's performance earned a Razzie Award nomination for Worst Actress. Roger Ebert later named it one of the worst films of 1982. Gene Siskel however, liked the film, praising the performances from the leads and its go-for-broke sentiment. Ebert later related a story in which Siskel admitted that his review was influenced by his wife's pregnancy.
