Hugh Grant and Sara Jessica Parker star in this delightful comedy about finding love in the most unexpected places. Two successful New Yorkers, Paul (Grant) and Meryl (Parker), are at their wits’ end with repairing their strained marriage. But when they become the only witnesses to a brutal murder, the police hide them away in Wyoming – together. Now these die-hard city dwellers will have to survive the weather, bears, fresh air, and forced time with one another if they want to make it out alive.
Hugh Grant and Sarah Jessica Parker play an estranged husband and wife, both die-hard New Yorkers; while trying to patch things up, they witness a murder and have to go into witness protection in backwater Wyoming. Encounters with bears, bingo, and rodeo clowns ensue. The fish-out-of-water formula is not particularly inspired, but Grant and Parker are well matched; they're both pros who establish an immediate rapport and comfort with each other, making them persuasive as a married couple who haven't fallen out of love. On top of that, the supporting cast is top-notch: Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men) as Parker's snippy assistant, Sam Elliott (Thank You for Smoking) as the Wyoming marshal assigned to protect the neurotic couple, and Mary Steenburgen (Melvin and Howard) as the marshal's tough-as-nails wife are only the most recognizable of the solid ensemble playing the quirky characters surrounding the feuding romantic leads. Writer-director Marc Lawrence previously directed Grant to stronger effect in Music & Lyrics and, in particular, Two Weeks Notice, in which Grant and Sandra Bullock proved surprisingly sparky. --Bret Fetzer

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?
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.
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?Read more ›
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
