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>

Trivia

When Vincent (Michael Kelly) makes his assault on the Wheeler ranch, the rifle he is carrying is a SUB-2000, made by Kel-Tec CNC Industries. It is a 9mm carbine that uses Glock magazines, and is notable for the fact that the entire length of the rifle will fold in half for transport and storage. See more »

Goofs

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.

Not Groundbreaking, But Entertaining Enough
17 January 2010 | by See all my reviews

If you're expecting an original groundbreaking comedy, you're probably going to be disappointed by this film. But if you're looking for a bit of sweet entertainment, it will fit the bill.

The acting was pretty decent, and there were quite a few chuckles throughout the movie. If you're looking for much more than that, you'll probably want to pick another movie. The biggest disadvantage was that the plot was absolutely predictable.

However, I was impressed with the way it showed a couple trying to work through a very serious problem in their relationship. The romance part was fairly believable.

It's not a movie that I'm dying to see again or rushing to go out and buy, but it was an enjoyable way to spend some time. I went to see it with family, and we all more or less enjoyed it.
