Did You Hear About the Morgans?

Okay, so Sarah Jessica Parker and Hugh Grant aren't my two favourite actors ever. I mean, I love SJP in Sex and the City and I used to have a mad crush on Hugh Grant when I was nine year old, but they aren't really that great. And, yeah, Did You Hear About the Morgans? (2009) got some pretty bad reviews. Yet, I love films that get bad reviews, because they are so goddamn funny!
Meryl (SJP) and Paul (Grant) Morgan are a couple who are about to be divorced. They go out one night for dinner, but end up witnessing a murder. Now they are wanted dead by the murderer, and the police thinks it's only best for them to go to a little country town in Wyoming under witness protection. Can they survive the move from New York life to the quiet country life?
Yeah, it sounds silly. Oh, it is pretty silly. Okay, reeeeeeally silly. I think this movie is blinded by it's sillyness. But I could still enjoy it, because I just basked it the films utter stupidity and incapibility to make any sense out of the situation at all. SJP and Grant are at their best--portraying selfish dim-witted people who have had the 'Hollywood wake-up' to life. If they ever remake this film, I would love to see Jessica Simpson in it, because this is the sort of crap she'd be into. And Mary Steenburgen, please go back to drama! However, this is a good way to spend time.

You mustn't be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling.
