Storyline

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 <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

Sarah Jessica Parker's character's wedding vows to Hugh Grant's character ("Let me not to the marriage of true minds...") are taken from William Shakespeare's Sonnet 116, published in 1609. See more »

Goofs

An experienced shooter like Emma would never allow a first-timer like Meryl to hold and fire a rifle as depicted in this film. By pressing her cheek against the side of the rifle while failing to secure the stock firmly with her shoulder, Meryl would likely have seriously injured herself as a result of the recoil produced by firing. This was demonstrated in the same scene when Paul injured his shoulder despite holding the rifle more correctly. See more »

I thought it was funny!
9 March 2010 | by (Earth) – See all my reviews

This film is about a separated couple who has to move to a small town in the countryside, after witnessing a murder.

I thought "Did You Hear About the Morgans" was funny! Yes the plot follows the same formula as of all romantic comedies, but it is enjoyable and fun. There are some laugh out loud moments, such as the angiography joke or the fourteen political followers joke. I think does present the life of a small town in an entertaining and humorous way. I particularly like Mary Steenburgen's character, when she talked about reconciling with her husband because of lots of cows, she looked so genuinely reminiscent the amazing feeling. This backdrop of a small town provides the catalyst for a change in the Morgans' relationship status. Sometimes, a change is what is needed for things to go well!
