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, and the murderer sees them. The F.B.I. wants them in Witness Protection until the killer is caught. He's already hunting them. The F.B.I. 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 City ways bump up against those of the West. Meantime, Meryl knows two things that Paul doesn't. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

When the Morgans fly out of New York City, it is obviously bright daylight. However, when they arrive in Wyoming it seems to be twilight. Unless the jet is very slow or they had a layover, this is impossible. New York City is in the Eastern Time Zone and Wyoming is in the Mountain Time Zone. Therefore, they would have GAINED 2 hours when flying toward the west. It should have still been bright daylight. See more »

Meryl Morgan: [on the answering machine] Hi, you've reached Meryl Morgan, I can't take your call right now, so leave a message and have a great day. Thanks!
Paul Morgan: Uh, hello, it is me, your uh... your husband, um... at least legally uh... still your husband, as recognized by the state of New York, and uh... in the end, who would argue with the governor?

Not that bad. A good laugh.
13 January 2010 | by See all my reviews

Don't be fooled by most of the reviews here. I can't explain them, but it may have something to do with the fact that some of the jokes in the movie are not immediately perceptible to those who haven't worked/lived in a big city.

I just watched this last night and had a blast! It's not for the quality of the movie itself. In fact, some of the acting is quite bad. But one of the points in going to the movies is to have fun. Movies entertain you. And this one did an exceptional job in that matter!

As a comedy, it is one of the best I've seen in the last couple of years or so. It's a good laugh that is worth a watch.
