Movie review - Did you hear about the Morgans?

Updated on October 19, 2010

This romantic comedy pairs Sarah Jessica Parker and Hugh Grant as a married, though separated couple. This pairing is hilarious, they respond to each other well. This creates a believable relationship and a very well-timed comedy. Hugh Grant has always been a master of comedy, and his great timing, his expressive face and his charming British Accent make him very interesting.

When the Morgans (Meryl and Paul) have been separated for 3 months they go out to dinner to further discuss their situation. After dinner they accidentally witness a murder, and get put into the US Witness Protection Program. Next you see the New Yorkers trying to make it in a small village in the middle of nowhere. They have never been out of New York before, and have trouble adapting to the quiet life in Ray, Wyoming. They have no phones, no internet connection, trouble connecting with the locals, there is still a killer looking for them, and of course they can barely look at each other without arguing. They are staying with a local sheriffs couple, and the couple is trying their best to protect them, but Meryl and Paul aren't making things easy on them. Meryl desperately tries to contact her assistant in new York, and Paul has a run-in with a bear. But in these extreme circumstances Meryl slowly starts to forgive Paul for cheating, although she still has some secrets of her own.

Parker and Grant make a great bickering couple, trying to overcome their differences. Whatever Hugh Grant says, in his charming British accent everything is funny. And Parker is very good at the more subtle comedy as well as the less subtle jokes. Their two New York assistants, trying to keep things afloat in the big city, and the Sheriff couple (Sam Elliot and Mary Steenbergen) that watch the Morgans make for some good comedy as well.

It is a great light romantic comedy. And even though the end is rather predictable, everything that happens in between is not. And Parker and Grant will not fail to make you laugh. Perfect for a relaxing night in
