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 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.

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? I uh... I wanted to call and just say hello, as it is approaching the three-month anniversary of our being separated, and I thought perhaps it might be ...

Nothing more than a marketing ploy...
10 December 2009 | by See all my reviews

I attended the London movie premiere for this on Tuesday and there is always one BIG PROBLEM about premieres... if the movie is bad you can't leave. I realised very early on in this movie that I had a BIG PROBLEM.

Getting through this movie and hearing other people chuckle politely at the jokes just so as not to offend SJP and HG made the atmosphere unbearable. The storyline was terrible, the dialogue was predictable and the characters were as if plucked straight from other movies: HG was Charles from 'Four Weddings', Sam Elliot was Virgil from 'Tombstone', Mary Steenburgen was Clara from 'Back to the Future 3' and SJP was Paula from 'Failure to Launch'... and you spend the entire movie thinking about how much better all of those other movies were!

When this ended, I thought to myself "Why has this been made at all?" and then it dawned upon me... MARKETING PLOY. SJP has SATC 2 coming out next year and needs to get back into the public eye just before that and HG needs to help his Ex (Liz) raise awareness for her charity. This movie will get them some column inches in magazine and some exposure on the Internet. It makes perfect sense now...

PRO: I smiled at the last joke in the movie. CON: I only smiled at the last joke in the movie
