Storyline:

Meryl and Paul Morgan have separated since his infidelity. He’s a Manhattan lawyer, seeking forgiveness. She’s moved on, focusing on real estate sales. As he walks her to an appointment one evening, pleading his case, they witness a murder; the murderer sees them. The FBI wants them in witness protection until the killer is caught. He’s already hunting them. The FBI sends them to Ray, Wyoming, a tiny ranch town, where they stay with the aging sheriff and his gun-toting wife (who’s his deputy). Meryl and Paul must sort out their relationship while their New York ways bump up against those of the West. Meantime, Meryl knows two things that Paul doesn’t.

One review

  • Hugh Grant and Sarah Jessica Parker do not have any real genuine chemistry together, and it lacks a lot of laughs, and that’s a main ingredient for a successful romantic comedy. The pace was too slow, it can be easily cut off 30 minutes. This script is not well-written, and the entire film suffers for it. Overall: “Did You Hear About The Morgans?” is yet another terrible romance film. It lacks originality, it lacks heart and it’s just not that good. If you haven’t already heard about the Morgans, then avoid doing so as much as possible…
