Lawrence's recycled observations of the virtues of rural life, his struggles to find something funny about local "types" (an unworldly doctor and his naïve-nitwit nurse), his "grizzly encounter" scene, are painful to watch.

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.

Predictable, leaden, unfunny and unnecessary.

The cinematic equivalent of throwing buckets of money at a house with no foundations. The worst thing is, and sadly for cinema, this house shows no sign of falling down any time soon.

I grant you Hugh Grant and Sarah Jessica Parker evoke charm in the right screenplay. This is the wrong screenplay.

There's no sense of affection. No passion, even when they fight. Their dialogue rings hollow. These two aren't believable and their relationship is a black hole. Who cares?

Yes, comedies thrive on broad strokes. But selling Americans lame images of one another as if we haven't traversed the country (if not in actuality, via television and film) is dispiriting.

The jokes were old when "Green Acres" was new.

It's not just the sound of crickets you hear watching this movie. It's the sound of dead crickets.

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

Parker and Grant sleepwalk their way through a flatline comedy in which old jokes can be seen coming a mile away.

Did You Hear About the Morgans? is about as stereotypical as a stereotypical romantic comedy can get

A fish-out-of-water comedy that flops around on the dock for a while before eventually, and mercifully, expiring.

Not even the clumsy title bears any evidence of inspiration, which actually makes it a nice fit for writer-director Marc Lawrence's dud of a script.

The romantic-comedy equivalent of a genetically-tweaked slab of meat, an over-engineered counterfeit whose marketing tells us a lie every instinct we have disputes.

Hugh, what a stinker! Mediocre sit-com humour doesn't help an unoriginal premise and a star pairing with less believable chemistry than a pebble and another slightly smaller pebble. Where's a straight-to-video distributor when you need one?

The cliché-ridden dialogue is delivered with no feeling or conviction and a predictable ending leaves you wanting more. The supporting players are given little to do, but outshine the marquee names.

A somewhat amusing yet trite example of the modern-day screwball comedy.

Considering how rarely Grant works, you'd expect genuine excellence in the scripts he picks. We'd expected more than this merely serviceable, not very believable Hollywood romcom.
