Movie Reviews Did You Hear About The Morgans?

As if opening against Avatar weren't bad enough, Did You Hear About the Morgans? starring Sarah Jessica Parker, Hugh Grant, Mary Steenburgen and Sam Elliott, is receiving one of the worst critical receptions of the year. "The world would be a happier place if we'd never heard about the Morgans," Claudia Puig concludes in USA Today. Joe Neumaier in the New York Daily News writes that the film's "loping pace, inconsistent tone and lack of imagination are all deadly." How deadly? Mick LaSalle in the San Francisco Chronicle writes. "Sometimes it's unpleasant, sometimes it's insincere, and for long stretches it's boring." Carrie Rickey in the Philadelphia Inquirer calls it a "mirth-free comedy." And Wesley Morris in the Boston Globe comments "Most bad comedies plod from scene to scene. This one plods from sentence to sentence."
