Did you Hear about the Morgans? - A Review

A few days ago a friend and I went to see the new RomCom chickflick (don't you just love those?) "Did you hear about the Morgans?" Directed & written by Marc Lawrence (Music & Lyrics, Two Weeks Notice), Sarah Jessica Parker (Sex in the City), who plays Meryl Morgan, and a very much older looking Hugh Grant, who plays her separated husband Paul Morgan, witness a murder and are forced to enter witness protection. Oh yes, they must actually leave their beloved city, aka New York City and go to live in a small country town in Wyoming in hopes that the murdered won't find them there. There are bears, horses and guns and one restaurant in town with the only vegetarian dish being a salad, something that the couple never experienced in the big city. When Parker learns that she must leave NY the movie seems more like a promo for the city when she's told by the fbi agent "its either die or leave nyc", she got a laugh from the audience when she has to think about it for a bit before she finally agrees. Don't get me wrong, living in NYC does have its advantages, but its not exactly a place to die for, unless I guess your Meryl Morgan, owner of her own successful real estate company, separated from her husband who had an affair on her and suffering from infertility. Wyoming turns out to be the safest place for the couple as we get to watch them fight, laugh, make up, fight off a bear, shoot a rifle and run miles in the middle of no where. We learn about the couples marrital problems, their infertility issues, their wedding vows and what really happened to their love for eachother. I would definetly get this one on netflix, or 1 of those buy 4 for 20$ at Blockbuster, to have on a girls night or a "me night" but I wouldn't pay 10$ to see it in a theater. Maybe a 3 star (if you're a lover of chick flicks!)


  1. Ok- duly noted! I will netflix it!! Haveyou seen "Lovely Bones" yet? I want to see it this weekend.

  2. I haven't even heard of that one... maybe it hasn't made it to the UK yet (not even the trailers).

  3. Good to know. I was wondering about that one. They seem like an odd pairing.

    Stopping by from SITS!

  4. I love chick eve though you gave it three stars, I'll probably watch it when it comes out on DVD :) Thanks for the info!
