While at times the pair sparkle and most importantly have chemistry, entire scenes are laugh-free zones as far as the dialogue is concerned.

Grant and Parker... are so boringly civil that there must have been a marriage guidance counsellor standing just out of shot.

Writer-director Marc Lawrence's film delivers some halfway decent lines for Grant to gobble up gratefully enough up until this point, but from here on in it gets worse and worse.

Let down by a script that's not funny enough and a plot that's so formula it came from a baby's bottle.

Punishingly lame and containing little romance to compensate for the absence of comedy.

Neither good nor bad. Scales dizzying new heights of okay. Aims for mediocrity... and nails it.

Disappointing romcom with a lazy, predictable plot, irritating characters, lacklustre performances and painfully unfunny set-pieces.

...a lightweight but entertaining comedy deftly performed by some old hands.

A friend in Hollywood told me last summer to expect a lot of "recession" movies - movies contrived to provide all those involved with a quick paycheck - in the coming months and I'm guessing this is what he meant.

With less edge than soup, Did You Hear About the Morgans? is a proud, plain, rom com.

Yes, I've heard about the Morgans. I've heard about Matthew McConaughey Morgan, Debra Messing Morgan, Gerard Butler Morgan, Renee Zellweger Morgan, John Cusack Morgan and Kate Hudson Morgan. All the damn morgans.

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

Sweet and funny, this is more suitable for a TV movie than a big screen feature

There's a scene where Hugh Grant confronts a grizzly bear and I've never rooted so hard for a predatory mammal.

While it fails on nearly every conceivable level, as a textbook case in everything contemptible in the studio system, Did You Hear About the Morgans? is as good as it gets.
