Did You Hear About the Morgans?
Time Out says
We’re supposed to care whether they do actually remain together, but there are distractions, like wondering whether SJP’s somewhat amorphous skin tone means she’s actually been replaced by a CGI avatar of herself. Or quite why Grant, who hustles awfully hard with material you’d hardly call fluff, keeps working with writer-director Marc Lawrence – he who brought us ‘Two Weeks Notice’ and ‘Music & Lyrics’, the celluloid equivalent of microwaveable ready meals. There’s a kind of functional professionalism which keeps things burbling along painlessly enough, but it’s an experience more fitting to a flu-ish afternoon on the sofa or long-haul in economy, when we’re at our least demanding. Rootin’, tootin’ cowboy folk Sam Elliott and Mary Steenburgen add some downhome charm, but from the moment we see posters warning of grizzly attacks in the area, a rampaging bear can’t arrive soon enough.
