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, 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>

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 »

Worst movie of the year
23 December 2009 | by See all my reviews

The trailer editor of the movie is amazing, he fouled me into thinking this is an unoriginal but funny holiday comedy. Actually, the movie is not funny at all, I've never smiled once during the whole séance.The pace was too slow, it can be easily cut off 30 minutes. All the gigs are old and not funny. The two about bear and horse are OK, but even those two are not funny in the movie with bad begin or end lines. The movie is so bad that during the last hour I actually wanted the killer won and kill both of the Morgans. PS Don't get me wrong, I was not dragged into theater by a woman, I'm a shallow movie goer and always a fun of Hugh Grant comedies(I felt Two Weeks Notice was very funny), I volunteered to go alone.
