    ...if you didn't consider yourself lucky! In this film, Hugh Grant is paired with Sarah Jessica Parker in perhaps the worst pairing since Vanilla Ice and Naomi Campbell in Cool As Ice. They play a fashionably separated, New York City power couple, who are forced into witness protection after witnessing a murder. These two city folks are put in the care of an elderly U.S. Marshall and his wife, in the middle of nowhere Montana. Let the fun times begin! Didn't Tim Allen and Kirstie Alley do this a decade earlier in Amish country? At least For Richer or Poorer could get a few cheap laughs here and there, but not the Morgans. The Morgans have no chemistry what-so-ever and their film is painfully slow and predictable. Hugh Grant is usually funny, but in this film, every attempt at humor is snuffed out by Sarah Jessica Parker, who has no idea what she's doing. Parker is just one of these people who was lucky enough to find her perfect role and she was amazing in it, but everything I've seen her in since Sex & The City has been awful! Did You Hear About The Morgans has been done, more than once, and if you watch this movie and can't tell what's going to happen, twenty minutes a head of time, then you haven't seen too many movies. This has got to be one of the biggest waste of money in recent Hollywood history and if you decide to watch it, then you're dumber than the casting director who thought pairing Grant and Parker was a good idea.

    This film received horrible reviews when it came out; both critics and viewers ripped it apart. It's not the best movie I've ever seen. In fact, it's as average as average gets. However, I enjoy this movie a lot. I've seen it multiple times and I never wished I were watching something else. I was entertained.

    Poorly written, poorly acted, poorly directed piece of contrived, predictable and cliched **** How to these films get funding? I also never cease to wonder how so many Hollywood films have such poor plot and script development. It is the scourge of the film making industry. Take my advice, stop putting all your money into special effects and spend a little on plot and script development. Whilst this film doesn't have any special effects it's clearly a victim of the habit. This dog of a movie is not helped when the leads are out acted by the support cast (Sam Elliot, Mary Steenburgen, Elisabeth Moss) who made reasonable fists of their crappy lines. Don't even waste time renting it, wait until it comes on TV, and then don't bother. Expand

    Nearly unwatchable. Everything about this is contrived, generic, and unfunny. I'm a fan of both actors, but neither is given anything to work with here. I rarely stop watching a movie before it ends, and this certainly tested my limits. An all-around disaster.

    The movie is like a car wreck in which no one is injured but the onlookers.

    While the movie isn't "Witness," you know that comic scenes of target practice are going to make sense around the bend.

    Everything about this fish-out-of-water romp is tired.
