Did You Hear About the Morgans? (2009)

TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: It gets a certain amount of mileage out of the inherent likability of its stars, but with an unfunny script and a lack of onscreen chemistry, Did You Hear About the Morgans? falls flat.

Movie Info

Highly successful Manhattan couple, Meryl and Paul Morgan, have almost-perfect lives-except for one notable failure - their dissolving marriage. But the turmoil of their romantic lives is nothing compared to what they are about to experience when they witness a murder and become targets of a contract killer. The Feds, protecting their witnesses, whisk away the Morgans from their beloved New York to a tiny town in Wyoming, and a relationship that was on the rocks threatens to end completely in the Rockies-- unless, in their new BlackBerry-free lives, the Morgans can slow down the pace and rekindle the passion.

All Critics (119) | Top Critics (33)

This ultra-mild frolic follows the 'fish-out-of-water' comedy formula so closely its lack of surprise is almost, well, surprising.

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

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

The cast is in such fine form that everything seems funny.

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.

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

Audience Reviews for Did You Hear About the Morgans?

The movie is not very original - a couple with a troubled marriage being forced to confront their issues in an unusual circumstance. If you are looking for light humour, this movie fits the bill

Entertaining and funny enough even if entirely unsurprising, of course. Grant and Parker seemingly still enjoy playing the same character over and over and their chemistry works. Overall likable and with a few good laughs. No regrets on a rainy Sunday afternoon.

This film recieved 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 alot. I've seen it multiple times and I never wished I were watching something else. I was entertained.
