If a work or result is promised to be completed "in a few weeks", is there a legal definition of how long that can take the most?
My gut instincts would say less then two months, but that is just my personal notion.

“A few weeks” is, in the absence of a particular definition, what a reasonable person in the circumstances would understand by the term.
That’s the legal definition.
You will note that it is not a specific time. The whole point is that it is flexible to the circumstances. If you wanted a specific time you were free to agree to a specific time.
Without knowing your circumstances 1-2 weeks is less than “a few weeks”, 26+ weeks is definitely more, 16+ is probably more so it’s somewhere in the 3-15 week range.
