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...

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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