In New York City, an estranged couple who witness a murder are relocated to small-town Wyoming as part of a witness-protection program.
I eventually got round to watching this film and decided I still wanted to see it despite all of the bad reviews it had received. As you probably know I am a massive Sarah Jessica Parker fan because of Sex and the City. I am not the biggest Hugh Grant fan, but the bad reviews made me more curious to see this film to find out if it was really as bad as I had heard. Well I am not really sure where to start with it all, as I didn’t totally hate it but didn’t really like it either. So I guess it doesn’t really mean much.
I found the film to have two main points, one being a separated married couple realising that they could still have something and working past that Paul cheated on Meryl. The other being what happens when people used to living in a big city have to move to a small town in the country. Things are very different, from the outdoors, fresh air, wild animals and bargain bulk buying shops.
The film isn’t really anything new and nothing we have not seen before. I didn’t really feel very much between them for chemistry. One thing that really annoyed be though was that Paul cheated on Meryl. Yet when Meryl confessed that she had been with someone whilst they were seperated and he totally freaks out. I mean why do men always seem to behave like that?!?!
So this is pretty much a film that doesn’t have anything memorable and will soon be gone from my memory. It’s not really worth the watch as it’s all been done before. I didn’t find myself laughing out loud once and its a comedy. O well we have SATC 2 coming out soon!
