Did You Hear About the Morgans?

From the writer-director of Music and Lyrics comes a new romantic comedy starring rom-com veteran Hugh Grant alongside hip romantic Sarah Jessica Parker.

Mr and Mrs Morgan's relationship is on the rocks. Their busy lives in New York allow little time for romance. But things are about to change. Having witnessed a murder, the two are whisked off (cynicism and all) to rural Wyoming under a witness protection programme. And then, all of a sudden, alone in the middle of nowhere, romance blossoms...

What possible reason was there for anyone to make Did You Hear About the Morgans? Or should I say "remake," because this movie has been made and over and over again, and oh, so much better.

Neither good nor bad. Scales dizzying new heights of okay. Aims for mediocrity... and nails it.

Hollywood Reporter

Not even the estimable comic chops of Hugh Grant and Sarah Jessica Parker can lift it above the level of ordinary.

Los Angeles Times

Grant has never been less charming and Parker never less fashionable or more grating than they are as Paul and Meryl Morgan.

New York Times

There are barely enough titter-worthy one-liners in Marc Lawrence’s good-natured romantic comedy Did You Hear About the Morgans? to prevent it from sinking under the weight of its clichés.

Total Film (UK)

SJP’s boutique real-estate agent Meryl is written ditzy but played painfully straight, making a distractingly haggard Hugh Grant’s mugging and quips as her legal-eagle husband look like anomalies in this all-too-predictable trip to Dullsville, USA.

But the charm of the film is that it resists turning people into cliches and lets Parker and Grant work their particular magic -- before they get to Wyoming, their performances are as stressed out as their characters, and while it's a dubious conceit that going cowboy is a cure-all, they put the notion across as convincingly as possible.

Wait til it's weekly hire to watch

I won this dvd from the kind people at flicks. All my flatties and I watched it together. We all are Hugh Grant fans and were not that impressed by him in this movie. I think the script was a bit off. I feel asleep the first time I tried to watch this by myself. However I still got some laughs outta this movie in the doctor scenes and I still think it's a good movie for a rainy day to watch with friends (maybe this is because I like Hugh Grant).

I did not have high expectations, I just wanted to watch a light movie with some funny moments, something relaxing. This is one of the most boring movies I have seen for a long time. The acting was just awful!

Avoid this!

This is defiantely in the top (bottom?) 5 of the worst movies I have ever seen. I haven't seen such wooden acting from the leads since watching Mick Jagger in Freejack in 1991. I didn't have high expectations and the ones I had were dashed very shortly after the opening credits. Wished I had stayed in.
