A look at love through the eyes of five interconnected couples experiencing the thrills and surprises of having a baby, and ultimately coming to understand the universal truth that no matter what you plan for, life doesn't always deliver what's expected.
Meryl and Paul Morgan have separated since his infidelity. He's a Manhattan lawyer, seeking forgiveness. She's moved on, focusing on real estate sales. As he walks her to an appointment one evening, pleading his case, they witness a murder; the murderer sees them. The FBI wants them in witness protection until the killer is caught. He's already hunting them. The FBI sends them to Ray, Wyoming, a tiny ranch town, where they stay with the aging sheriff and his gun-toting wife (who's his deputy). Meryl and Paul must sort out their relationship while their New York ways bump up against those of the West. Meantime, Meryl knows two things that Paul doesn't. Written by
When Paul and Meryl are alone at the ranch after she talks with him at the rodeo dance, he's outside chopping wood. One camera angle shows him whacking at a round log with the axe, to no avail in splitting it. However, after Meryl walks outside the next camera angle shows he's splintered the log into 4ths or 5ths.

Did you hear about the Morgans? a movie that tells the story of a highly successful couple Meryl (Sarah Jessica Parker) and Paul Morgan (Hugh Grant) have almost-perfect lives-except for one notable failure - their dissolving marriage but their lives are about to change when they witness a murder that makes them enter into the witness protection program moving them from NY to a tiny town in Wyoming. It is a romantic comedy with some good jokes, specially from Hugh Grant and a story way to predictable. The locations are great, you can see all the lights and glamour from New York in one moment and immediately you admire the naturalness of Wyoming. The Cast is mainly carried out by Hugh Grant, and expert in this kind of movies, and Sarah Jessica Parker that I felt her like she was in the role of Carrie Bradshaw. I think that the supporting roles of Sam Elliot and Mary Steenburgen were way better and convincing. In conclusion, there's nothing special about Did you hear about the Morgans? A movie that could be enjoyable but instantly forgivable. If you wanna watch it, you better wait for it on DVD.
