`Did You Hear About the Morgans?' is Hollywood's best stab at a romantic comedy for 2009 that would make its mark. Unfortunately, many of those who have seen the film think of it as a poor effort. The general feeling is that `Did You Hear About the Morgans?' is unoriginal and just another of your typical romcoms; but it is unfair to expect a completely fresh approach from a genre that is known and loved for its predictability.

There is no couple better than Hugh Grant and Sarah Jessica Parker to star as Paul and Meryl, a rich, stylish, yet separated couple, otherwise known as the Morgans. Due to stupidity on Paul's part, he is striving to gain forgiveness from his wife after his infidelity, when they witness a murder and are put under state protection. Leaving their New York City lives far behind them, they fly to Ray Wyoming and are cut off from every connection to their beloved way of living; an unbearable situation for the pair. The relocation gives writer-director, Marc Lawrence, further fuel for comedy, and performances from Sam Elliott and Mary Steenburgen as the Morgans' protectors are the icing on the cake. What follows is a series of bear attacks, horse rides, woodcutting and cow-milking; events that render the Morgans flabbergasted and the audience in stitches.

With all jokes aside, `Did You Hear About the Morgans?' delves deep into common issues married couples may have, and the emotions that walk hand in hand with them, whilst keeping it light-hearted with the relocation and extreme situations they find themselves in when they least expect it; a combination that romcom lovers revel in and adore.

Although it has been criticised widely for not being an Oscar-winning film, `Did You Hear About the Morgans?' is a satisfying romantic comedy, certain to cheer you up at the end of a long day, and `does exactly what it says on the box'.
My Rating: 7/10

We have all seen this movie dozens of times before, it might not have the same name or, with the obvious exception of Hugh Grant, the same actors, but it is the same story, we all know what is going to be predictable. With that in mind I can't really judge this film on the basis of lack of originality, how could I? Hugh Grants face is on the poster so, let's face it, everybody that watches this movie, voluntarily, knows what they are going to get. I think these kinds of movies are very often peoples guilty pleasures, and I include myself in that demographic. For me, there are few things more enjoyable than a good Hugh Grant movie, I'm not looking to have my mind blown or hoping to witness a re-definition of cinema, I just want to sit back and enjoy a romantic comedy! Trust me being a man; it's not really easy to admit that on the internet for everyone to see.

It's crucial for a romantic comedy to possess a certain level of charm and chemistry, especially if the story is thoroughly familiar and has nothing new to offer. Not only do these vital elements help us to forget that we're essentially spending our precious free time to watch yet another retread of a concept we've already seen countless times before, but they also go a long way in making the constant clichés enjoyable.

I'm pleased, and rather pleasantly surprised to say that together, Hugh Grant and Sarah Jessica Parker display all the chemistry that is needed for a couple to be entertaining on screen.

As you would expect there are truly no surprises in Did You Hear About the Morgans? Every moment from, bear attacks to rekindling romances can be seen from a mile off.

In fact, if I was to put my super critical logical hat on, the only justifiable reason to watch Did You Hear About the Morgans?

Hugh Grant - predictable
Sarah Jessica-Parker - disappointing
HG is what he always is nowadays, but that's ok, at least he's always funny.
SJP is hopeless!!! I'm sorry, but there is no other word to describe her performance in this movie.
She is over-acting, which spoils pretty much everything, and the whole "I'm a New Yorker" thing is just a little too desperate in my opinion.
Now I've seen few movies with SJP and I know she can do better, so what on earth possessed her to portray Mrs. Morgan/Foster in such a poor way that really ruins the whole movie?

Hugh Grant is actually quite brilliant at generating abit of mirth in his usual way, Sarah Jessica Parker by contrast is just dreadful at the comedic side of things, as a result it all ends up abit dire at times.
The story itself is only really there as a vehicle for the actors so don't expect much from the storyline for entertainment, it's just a shame that with SJP misfiring it means it's a big disappointment.
The script still has a few good gags independent of the actors which probably stops it being a total disaster, difficult to recommend with much enthusiasm, but as a cheap 'watch once and throw away' movie possibly just ok.

I found this movie quite disappointing. I've always been a fan of Hugh Grant and Sarah Jessica Parker, so I was definitely expecting a lot from this movie. The trailer seemed quite catchy as well but the movie itself failed to amuse me.

Paul Morgan (Hugh Grant) and his estranged vegetarian wife Meryl (Sarah Jessica Parker) may never reconcile. He chases and she snubs. Then one night circumstances change and they find themselves transported of a remote end-of the earth and force to survive together in this alien environment. They find themselves in a witness-protection program and watched over by a Wyoming couple Clay Wheeler (Sam Elliott) and his gun wielding, meat-eating wife Emma (Mary Steenburgen.) Will the make the standard faux pas to be discovered and dispatched before they can reconcile or will their newly acquired rustic skills help them to survive?

The overall formula is standard and the movie genre is well sneaked out. Yet it is the actors, their interaction and the small story twists that make this an exception of its type. Hugh uses his three expressions just at the right time. Moreover, tossed in the mix, as a catalyst is Kim Shaw as the local nurse, waitress, and deputy fire chief.

The film of course is supposed to be of Wyoming but as with most presentations today the real locations are:
Galisteo, New Mexico, USA
(Rodeo scene)
Los Alamos, New Mexico, USA
New York City, New York, USA
Pecos, New Mexico, USA
(Ranch)
Roy, New Mexico, USA
Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA

I only watch the Blu-ray version so I cannot compare versions. However, you do not want to miss the voiceover commentary. Much of the commentary is Sarah Jessica Parker describing her cloths.
