Did You Hear About The Morgans?
Hugh Grant and Sarah Jessica Parker are a bit of an "it" couple in New York. Recently separated due to Grant's infidelity, he's trying everything in his power to get his missus back. One night, having convinced her to go dinner, they see a man being murdered; upon fleeing the murder scene, they find out the murderee was a witness in a case that involves a powerful arms dealer, and are promptly shipped off to arse-end of nowhere in case they get whacked by the same man. Once there, all fish out of water like, they soon grow to enjoy the simpler things in life, such as each other. And running. And Republicans.
Even the most hardcore romcom fan will have trouble finding something here to enjoy. Grant and Parker seem like the perfect pairing on paper, and writer/director Lawrence has thread this ground before to modest success with Music and Lyrics, he just failed to inject his script with any originality or charm. Instead, we've got a man who cheated because his wife annoyed him for a kid, and a selfish rich girl as the ones we're supposed to root for. Even the tried and tested 'fish out of water' scenes fall flat - a former comedy stalwart.
Everyone is sleepwalking through this, and there are no funny supporting characters to save the day. A clichéd, unfunny, bland carcass of a film. Crap title too.

Saw the first 30 mins of this on TV last night - utter s**te...... the review above says it all but the one and half stars was over generous.Posted 09:52 | Thu 12th Jul 2012
