I discovered this movie when seeking an easy movie to watch that would make me laugh. This movie definitely fit that bill!
I've read mixed reviews on "Did You Hear About the Morgans?" which I really don't understand. This is not meant to be an epic movie, rather it is light entertainment. While neither of the main actors are on my list of favorites, I must say, this movie made me like both of them better. Together, they really made me laugh.
Admittedly, having a cameo appearance of a stunning grizzly bear, did help. Hugh Grant's reaction and facial expressions during his bear encounter truly made me laugh out loud.
This is a movie to watch when you simply want to sit back and enjoy a show that doesn't require a great deal of emotional involvement, other than humor.
Did You Hear About the Morgans? Movie Synopsis
"Did You Hear About the Morgans?" is a just for fun movie starring Sarah Jessica Parker (Meryl Morgan) and Hugh Grant (Paul Morgan).
Did You Hear About the Morgans? DVDThe Morgan's live in New York and are both successful in business. Meryl owns a real estate company and Paul is an attorney. In spite of their professional success, there are problems in their marriage. Due to Paul's infidelity, the Morgans are separated. Of course, adultery is not funny, but in this movie their separation does provide the set-up for some rather humorous situations.
Meryl agrees to have dinner with Paul and afterwards they decide to walk to her next appointment together. Upon arrival, they witness the murder of her client. They see the murderer and he sees them!
When it is clear, the murderer plans to eliminate the witnesses, Meryl & Paul are placed in the witness protection program "together" as a married couple and sent to a very remote area in Ray, Wyoming. They are placed under the protection of two federal agents who happen to be married.
Clay (Sam Elliott) and Emma Wheeler (Mary Steenburgen) have provided shelter and protection for many witnesses in the past. They have a bedroom set up just for their "guests" and have restricted access to phones and computers, which keeps their guests from contacting friends or family. Meryl still manages to make a phone call back home, which brings the killer right to their temporary door step.
I highly recommend "Did You Hear About the Morgans?" for a anyone seeking to relax, laugh and enjoy the show!
