Did You Hear About the Morgans?

Q: What’s the movie about?

A: Can an estranged Manhattan couple (Hugh Grant & Sarah Jessica Parker), who have been separated for 3 months, survive the Wyoming countryside together, when they are forced to hide out, as part of the witness protection program?

Q: Who’s in the movie?

A: Hugh Grant, Sarah Jessica Parker, Sam Elliott, Mary Steenburgen, Elisabeth Moss, Jesse Liebman, Kim Shaw, David Call, Wilford Brimley, Michael Kelley, Gracie Bea Lawrence

Q: Is this movie worth the price of admission?

A: PhotobucketStop! What is it about movies that have question marks in the title?

Q: Will this movie make me laugh?

A: Did you hear about the one where the city dwellers have to go to the country and are fish out of water amongst gun-toting, rodeo-riding, God-fearing simple folk? Hahahahahaha! Just Kidding.

Q: Will this movie make me cry?

A: Does it make you sad when you know what's going to happen in a movie before you hear about it?

Q: Will this movie be up for any awards?

A: Did you hear about the Razzies?

Q: How is the Acting?

A: Did you hear about Sarah Jessica Parker's career choices? Don't you hope she's less annoying in the Sex and the City sequel?

Q: How is the Directing?

A: Did this director hear some kind of dirty little secret about Hugh Grant that he holds over him when he wants to force him out of retirement, so that he can have a big star in his movie? Does Hugh Grant hate his job as much as he seems to?

Q: How is the story/script?

A: Did you hear about how people think romantic comedies are the basest type of Hollywood dreck? Does the writer understand that this is the kind of cleverlessness that makes people think that? Did you hear about how upsetting it is to me, and other lovers of the genre, to see it done without passion or originality, only reinforcing its bad reputation to nay-sayers?

Q: Where can I see the trailer?

Did you know that I'm not a fan of SJP? Did you know that even if I were, I'd avoid this flick like the plague? Do you wonder how bad a hit Sam Elliott's retirement portfolio had to have taken during the recession to force him to make this?

Loved your write-up of this. I really want to read your last 6 or so, but I've seen none of them yet. I really need to get on the ball!
