In a silly way, it is entertaining, the mismatch is actually weirdly plausible, and try as I might, I couldn't be grumpy about it.

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

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

Where are Billy Crystal and the rest of City Slickers gang when we need them?

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

It's a pity there's no witness protection program for movies that commit crimes against audiences.

Intimates crime as the ultimate aphrodisiac, when it comes to rekindling doomed conjugal bliss. Move over, Viagra and sex toys.

Mostly it's an invitation to spend an easy 108 minutes with some very likable folks (Grant, Sam Elliott, and Mary Steenburgen) as they amble through a laid-back fish-out-of-water comedy.

A comedy with mostly likable, broadly drawn characters; tart, nonthreatening social satire with sharp enough teeth to leave an impression while not breaking the skin; and well-timed, modestly sophisticated repartee.

Lawrence clearly has a talent for the genre if he can write a story that includes a murder, not one but two bear attacks...and a climax at a rodeo and make the whole thing feel unforced.

It doesn't pretend to be an awards contender, and yet, oddly enough this year, it's far more entertaining and astutely written than the majority of recent releases that are.

It's not great art, but it has a certain goofy effervescence, mostly thanks to Hugh Grant.

It's a thoroughly delightful throwaway -- the kind of movie for which cable TV was made.

I wish I could answer 'no' to the movie's title question.

Despite a breezy premise, this rom-com displays lazy filmmaking at almost every level of the production

To end my assessment on the level of the film's writing, you'll wish you never heard about the Morgans. (Ha ha ha)

The mediocre material gets a boost from a hardworking Grant, who uses his trademark bumbling formality to deliver dry commentary and wring out the most laughs possible.
