Did You Hear About the Morgans?
A bickering New York couple on the verge of divorce is placed in the Witness Protection Program and relocated to Wyoming after witnessing a murder. Meryl and Paul Morgan (Sarah Jessica Parker and Hugh Grant) have all the money a couple could want -- it's love they're running short on. Upon witnessing a contract killing and being targeted by the triggerman, the couple find themselves at the mercy of the feds, who hastily send them packing for an extended stay in the Rockies. Could a peaceful life away from the city be just the thing to bring Meryl and Paul back together, or will the… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This ultra-mild frolic follows the 'fish-out-of-water' comedy formula so closely its lack of surprise is almost, well, surprising."
‑ Trevor Johnston, Time Out
"There's a scene where Hugh Grant confronts a grizzly bear and I've never rooted so hard for a predatory mammal."
‑ A.O. Scott, At the Movies
"I wish I could answer 'no' to the movie's title question."
‑ Greg Maki, Star-Democrat (Easton, MD)
"The mediocre material gets a boost from a hardworking Grant, who uses his trademark bumbling formality to deliver dry commentary and wring out the most laughs possible."
‑ Mark Pfeiffer, Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema
"Hugh, what a stinker! Mediocre sit-com humour doesn't help an unoriginal premise and a star pairing with less believable chemistry than a pebble and another slightly smaller pebble. Where's a straight-to-video distributor when you need one?"
‑ Catherine Bray, Film4
"One of those cookie-cutter romantic comedies in which fish out of water ("Which one's skim?" Parker asks while milking cows) learn to swim together again."
‑ Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York
"The cast is in such fine form that everything seems funny."
‑ Kyle Smith, New York Post
"Despite a breezy premise, this rom-com displays lazy filmmaking at almost every level of the production"
‑ Rich Cline, Shadows on the Wall
"Potro%u0161eni Hugh Grant i antipati%u010Dna izvedba S.J. Parker u komediji koja je trebala biti slasher horror"
‑ Dragan Antulov, rec.arts.movies.reviews
"In a silly way, it is entertaining, the mismatch is actually weirdly plausible, and try as I might, I couldn't be grumpy about it."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian [UK]
"The movie is like a car wreck in which no one is injured but the onlookers."
‑ Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine
"While it fails on nearly every conceivable level, as a textbook case in everything contemptible in the studio system, Did You Hear About the Morgans? is as good as it gets."
‑ Mary Elizabeth Williams, Salon.com
"To end my assessment on the level of the film's writing, you'll wish you never heard about the Morgans. (Ha ha ha)"
‑ Michael Dequina, TheMovieReport.com
"You've seen it before, and you'll see it again. In one way or another 'Did You Hear About the Morgans?' is the same old fish-out-of-water story that's been put to film dozens of times."
‑ Linda Cook, Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)
"Parker is better, injecting a note of rawness and authenticity into an otherwise misconceived subplot about adoption. Even she can't fake any curiosity in, yet alone sexual chemistry with, Grant."
‑ Sukhdev Sandhu, Daily Telegraph
