Hugh Grant and Sara Jessica Parker star in this delightful comedy about finding love in the most unexpected places. Two successful New Yorkers, Paul (Grant) and Meryl (Parker), are at their wits’ end with repairing their strained marriage. But when they become the only witnesses to a brutal murder, the police hide them away in Wyoming – together. Now these die-hard city dwellers will have to survive the weather, bears, fresh air, and forced time with one another if they want to make it out alive.
Hugh Grant and Sarah Jessica Parker play an estranged husband and wife, both die-hard New Yorkers; while trying to patch things up, they witness a murder and have to go into witness protection in backwater Wyoming. Encounters with bears, bingo, and rodeo clowns ensue. The fish-out-of-water formula is not particularly inspired, but Grant and Parker are well matched; they're both pros who establish an immediate rapport and comfort with each other, making them persuasive as a married couple who haven't fallen out of love. On top of that, the supporting cast is top-notch: Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men) as Parker's snippy assistant, Sam Elliott (Thank You for Smoking) as the Wyoming marshal assigned to protect the neurotic couple, and Mary Steenburgen (Melvin and Howard) as the marshal's tough-as-nails wife are only the most recognizable of the solid ensemble playing the quirky characters surrounding the feuding romantic leads. Writer-director Marc Lawrence previously directed Grant to stronger effect in Music & Lyrics and, in particular, Two Weeks Notice, in which Grant and Sandra Bullock proved surprisingly sparky. --Bret Fetzer

The characters of the Marshall and his wife in Montana were a perfect western counterpart to the Amish family in For Richer Or Poorer. I find Hugh Grant inherently funny in almost anything he does and Sarah Jessica Parker brings a blend of straightforwardness and assertiveness tempered with just the right amount of insecurity and naivite that make her the perfect grown-up especially when she's running behind her horse shouting-I'm not on the horse.
Hugh was properly ashamed of the affair he'd had that prompted their separation in the first place and convincingly penitent. Sara's confession of her own misdeed and how they were brought to a point of mutual trust again by mutually defending each other against the common enemy of the man sent to kill them for their bearing witness to a murder was priceless.
I would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone of any age over 13. We all could use a refresher course in how to relate.
This one is actually nothing like Notting Hill or 4Weddings and a Funeral which I think were the best ones but is an interesting movie about a couple in marital problems who suddenly and accidentally witness a crime and have to go under protection custody in a rather far place with some cultural differences.
You sure will enjoy some great acting, some nice scenes and funny events, the course is not very predictable.
Overall, I enjoyed the movie. The quality of picture was good but the sound was a bit muffled on my computer. I prefer to rent movies but had to buy this one because the online rent option was not available. I'm happy with the purchase though. Good for a Saturday at home or anytime you need a good laugh and some relaxing moments.
