Did You Hear About the Morgans?
Sarah Jessica Parker, Hugh Grant, Sam Elliott, Mary Steenburgen
Directed by Marc Lawrence
Sony Pictures Home Entertainment 2010
103 minutes

The Sarah Jessica Parker – Hugh Grant romantic comedy DVD Did You Hear About the Morgan may be somewhat predictable but it certainly is much better than the trailer suggests. This is your basic dueling couple must patch up differences and city folk end up being country folk kind of comedy. Still, Did You Hear About The Morgans manages to be fun and very entertaining.

Paul and Meryl Morgan are a recently separated New York City yuppy couple. Paul is trying to patch things up. One night they witness a murder. When the killer goes after the Morgans, they are placed in the Witness Protection Program under the care of Sam Elliott and Mary Steenburgen in a small, very small Wyoming town.

There, the Morgans must learn that country folk are good folk, how to milk a cow, and to patch things up. Once all that is done the killer tracks them down, stuff happens, and the movie ends.

This romantic comedy DVD is much better than just that. Parker and Grant are excellent and the movie doesn’t just rely on the genre’s stereotype to get the laughs and the story going.

This is not a particularly original story but it has its moments. Did You Hear About the Morgans makes for a very nice evening in front of the TV.
