Did You Hear About the Morgans? | 2009 | PG-13 | - 4.4.4

A husband and his wife (Hugh Grant and Sarah Jessica Parker), separated because of the husband's infidelity, find themselves in the witness protection plan after having witnessed a murder. Apart from being transplanted to a remote town in Wyoming, they must also live under the same roof and come to terms with their imminent divorce. Also with Sam Elliott, Mary Steenburgen, Elisabeth Moss, Michael Kelly and Wilford Brimley. Directed by Marc D. Lawrence. [1:43]

SEX/NUDITY 4 - A husband and his wife kiss, he carries her into the bedroom, he drops her on the floor (we hear a thud), closes the door while saying, "That was foreplay" and we see them the next morning (sex is implied).
 A man kisses a woman, she tasers him and he falls to the ground motionless. A husband and his wife kiss. Men and women dance together at a party and one man and a woman kiss.
 A husband tells his wife, "You are the sexiest and most exciting woman." A husband remarks to his wife about "Marveling at your behind." A wife confesses to her husband that she had an affair during their period of separation. A husband talks to his wife about another woman that he slept with and describes her perfume as smelling like a burrito. A woman talks about the "marriage myth" and that partners should not expect so much of each other.
 A man is shown in a shower (we see his bare shoulders) and another man opens the shower door (nothing sexual is implied). A woman wears low-cut tops, dresses and tank tops that reveal cleavage and bare shoulders in numerous scenes. A woman wears a short skirt.

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - A man with a knife sticking out of his back (it is very dark and no blood is evident) falls from a balcony, we hear a thud, a woman screams, and a man with a gun comes onto the balcony and points his weapon at a man and a woman who saw the dead man fall.
 A man is shot twice in the chest and falls to the floor with what looks like bloody bullet holes on his shirt (we hear that the man survives).
 A man with a gun tries to break into a woman's apartment, he fires the gun several times, and the woman dodges the bullets and climbs out on her balcony to safety. A man with a gun fires at a man and a woman riding away on a horse (no one is harmed). A woman fires a gun through a window at a man outside, and he fires back at her several times.
 A man draws a gun on another man, several other people around him draw their weapons and point them at the gunman, and he is struck in the head with a horseshoe and falls to the ground. A man and a woman shoot at targets: the man fires the gun, it kicks against his shoulder and he complains of the pain (we see him in a doctor's office later with a bruised shoulder). A man kisses a woman, she tasers him, and he falls to the ground motionless.
 A large brown bear approaches a man, the man freezes, the bear rears up and growls loudly, the man runs, and a woman sprays bear repellent in the man's face and the bear runs away. A man with a gun fires when an approaching bear frightens him.
 A bull charges a man and a woman and they are struck and fall to the ground; the woman complains of a leg injury (nothing is seen).
 A man is seen in a doctor's office with very irritated eyes after having been sprayed in the face with bear repellent. A man has a large scar on his face.
 A man talks about a man who was called a "butcher" and that he murdered five people. A man smoking a cigarette in a café is asked by a woman to blow the smoke the other way and he speaks to her in a threatening way about city folks and Democrats. A woman talks about having fights with her husband. A woman identifies herself as a vegetarian and a member of PETA, another woman says she is a member of PETA also and that the initials stand for People For The Eating Of Tasty Animals.
 We see a couple of bull riders at a rodeo get thrown and chased by bulls; clowns are trying to distract the bull.
 We see a scene from a movie on TV that shows a man with a gun shooting, bullets strike the car, and it swerves and overturns.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
