[3.50/10] Did You Hear About the Morgans? (2009)

Did You Hear
About the Morgans? (2009)

"Did You Hear About the Morgans?" is a bland romantic comedy obeying all the clichés about country vs. city and married couples reconciling with a denouement that defines telegraphing. The acting was shockingly bad! Hugh Grant acted like a man being held at ransom, trying to convey a desperate plea for help. His performance was forced and there was literally no chemistry whatsoever between him and Sarah Jessica Parker. He's a terrible actor. Period. Sarah Jessica Parker acts the same way she does in "Sex And The City". She isn't much for characterization. Sam Elliott and Mary Steenberger have smaller parts but they are the best thing about this movie. Both are superb actors and don't overact or overdramatize their parts. Outside of the beautiful locations and a couple of amusing jokes, "Did You Hear About the Morgans?" is pretty much anemic stuff that would more be suited for TV!

  • My Rating: 3.50/10
  • Rotten Tomatoes: 13% (7.5/10)
  • IMDb: 3.9/10
