Becky and I went to see new movie Did You Hear About The Morgans last Friday at the new Hollywood theaters in Southglenn. The Fandango website at Did You Hear About The Morgans describes the movie as follows:
“New Yorkers Paul (Hugh Grant) and Meryl (Sarah Jessica Parker) Morgan seem to have it all — except for the fact that their marriage is crumbling around them. But their romantic woes are small compared to the world of trouble they find themselves in after they witness a murder. To protect them from an assassin, federal agents whisk Paul and Meryl away to small-town Wyoming, where their marriage will either finally crash and burn, or their passion will re-ignite…”
Did You Hear About The Morgans is a quirky chick flick about a couple from New York who are having marriage trouble, only to end up in the Witness Protection Program and living together on a ranch in Wyoming. The movie centers around their marriage problems and living on this ranch out in the middle of nowhere. It’s very predictable and not that funny.
Did You Hear About The Morgans is not a very funny movie. I think that they cast it wrong for starters. Hugh Grant just isn’t that funny as a comedian with the one-liner’s they kept having him say throughout the film. Sarah Jessica Parker was kind of annoying. She’s definitely a New Yorker, but you didn’t really get emotionally attached to either of these characters. In fact, we liked the older couple they were staying with in Wyoming, played by Sam Elliot and Mary Steenburgen, much better than the lead characters. They were actually pretty funny and didn’t annoy you.
The movie kind of reminded me of “City Slickers” with Billy Crystal as a guy from the city going out into the Wild West and being out of his element. However, Billy could deliver on the lines that made it really funny, but this was a film that was too long at 1hr 43 minutes because you wanted it to be over. We would wait for the rental on this one.
