Flimsy premise sinks Did You Hear About the Morgans?

Did You Hear About the Morgans? has such a flimsy premise, it’s almost not worth explaining. But the story goes something like this. Paul Morgan (Hugh Grant) is a lawyer who cheated on his wife Meryl (Sarah Jessica Parker) while on a business trip. She found out and now they’re separated. Only he’s trying to win her back. He calls and leaves sweet, apologetic messages and sends an assortment of gifts. Frustrated by the lack of response, he shows up one night when she’s giving a presentation at a fundraiser. He talks her into going to dinner with him. All is progressing nicely until they witness a murder and have to be whisked away to a Wyoming ranch for safety. Before you can say New in Town, these city slickers are out riding horses and shooting rifles in the attempt to quickly adjust to life without their cell phones. Oh, and in the process, they attempt to get their relationship back on track. It’s quite predictable, and it doesn’t help that Grant and Parker don’t have any real chemistry. *
