3.0 out of 5 starsPainful to watch

A couple of things would have made this movie watchable. One, Andy MacDowell would have been great in the part played by SJP. Two, if the writers hadn't tried to poke fun at those of us that live in flyover country. We like our guns and barbecue and no we don't believe NYC is the center of the universe. Speaking of guns, the cast of this movie could have really benefited from firearm instruction. City dwellers may find this movie OK but it rubbed me the wrong way. 2.5 stars and that's being charitable.

3.0 out of 5 starsWhat an adorable couple!
Verified purchase
You simply can't go wrong with Sam Elliott. He's easy on the eyes, and that gravelly voice melts me. Mary Steenburgen is lovely as his wife, a realistic couple in that middle of the country way.

Hugh Grant does a great job playing... Hugh Grant. I'm sure his character has a name, but does it matter? He's in turn chagrined, playful, romantic, and sarcastic - classic Hugh with his normal gorgeous charm.

Sarah Jessica Parker plays a stereotype of a New Yorker. Stressed, clueless out of her element, and all about her.

I have no clue what the latter two characters see in each other, and the movie doesn't make it any clearer. The jokes are at the expense of Midwest people against the seemingly classier New Yorkers, superficially funny but sometime cringe-inducing.

Total waste of time? No - see Sam Elliott and Hugh Grant.
Would I watch it again? Also no.

2.0 out of 5 starsBoring
Verified purchase
Not the worst movie I've ever seen, but barely worth 2 stars for me. SJP character was too over-the-top in her reactions about everything. Seemed like she was having a melt-down every 20 minutes. Redundant and annoying to watch. There was zero chemistry between her character and Hugh's so found it difficult to cheer them on. The secondary characters in this movie (personal assistants, doctor, and nurse) were a lot more fun. And, Sam Elliott and Mary Steenburgen were a nice treat; would have liked them to have played more comedic roles.

5.0 out of 5 starsI found the comedy I "needed" tonight!
Verified purchase
Take New Yorkers and put them in the middle of nowhere with absolutely nothing including phones, I don't think too many people could handle that. Sarah Jessica Parker's posture when shooting for the first time is absolutely hysterical, and the husbands reaction to the kickback of a gun was also hysterical. Emma/Mary Steenburger was the most developed character, I always love her but this role really fit her and the movie wouldn't be the same without her. My only minor complaint is I think the ending was a little bit rushed but overall a really funny movie, just what I needed this evening, 4.5 Stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars4 stars if you get it free on Prime, not really worth paying for it otherwise

What can I say, I enjoyed this movie — at home, from my couch, on a cold Sunday night, as a free Prime video. I don’t think I would have enjoyed it at a theater. I have higher expectations for theater-going. It got very mediocre reviews at IMDb.

I found the first half charming and amusing. The second half not so much. It got a little too soppy for me. A serious subject is threaded throughout the story in that the husband (Hugh Grant) cheated on his wife (Sarah Jessica Parker) and they split up over that. During the course of the movie, he wants to get back together and she asks him questions about why he cheated. I thought there was a lot of realism in her approach to the issue. I didn’t find his responses very intelligible, but maybe a person doesn’t really know why they did something in the heat of the moment. I also found it realistic that they each sought the advice of the older couple (Sam Elliott and Mary Steenburgen). I enjoyed Sam Elliot and the bear most of all in this film.

For what it is — simplistic, formulaic, beautifully filmed, occasionally funny, and free Prime — I give it 4 stars.

5.0 out of 5 starsJUST WHAT I NEEDED!

This was really funny. I laughed out loud. I have been ill lately and this was the ticket.

Started right out with Hugh Grant being Hugh Grant over the opening credits and I settled right in. I'm not a SJP fan, per se, but she did a fairly good job keeping up with Hugh and that is tough to do. (Julia Roberts did it perfectly and that is hard to live up to.)

Yes, it was NYC people stuck in rodeo country where there were some odd remarks made both ways. But I was not offended on my side because Sam Elliott said them. Sam Elliott can say ANYTHING and I wouldn't be offended. So, with Hugh and Sam Elliott, I was feeling pretty good by the end. Thank you.

No nudity, no bad language and no gore (even thought 2 bears and a wild bull were involved). My kind of movie.

2.0 out of 5 starsLove all 4 but not together!
Verified purchase
Every one of the main characters - I love by themselves, but not with each other.
None of the 'couples' but the Doctor and his receptionist have any chemistry together at all.
Which makes more than one of the 'love' scenes rediculous and painful.
Cute baby in the end though.

3.0 out of 5 starsCliched, predictable and it has Hugh Grant. Ugh.
Verified purchase
The storyline is entirely predictable as is most of the dialogue. I think SJP plays virtually the same character every time she acts, Hugh Grant needs to grow a pair and learn how to be a man. Mary Steenburgen looks great in this movie, but her accent comes and goes and at no point sounds remotely authentic. This movie could have been saved, but it wasn't. It's still tolerable to watch, but not much more.
