During the holidays, Bossy had the chance to go to a movie with her family, which was really no big deal considering the last time Bossy treated herself to a day at the cinema, Thomas Edison was seated near the organist:
Shall we begin?
In Did You Hear About The Morgans, Hugh Grant plays a man:
And Sarah Jessica Mary Louise Parker plays a woman:
And everything is swell for this man and this woman:
Everything is swell, that is, until one night in their hometown of Rainy Big City, they witness something:
And because this man and this woman have witnessed something — even if one of the actors who shall remain nameless but rhymes with Eww Can’t had his eyes closed while the other actor can’t see past her eyeliner — the two are placed in the witness protection program and sent away to learn all new ways in the middle of nowhere, just west of west.

Bossy should have gone to see “Up in the Air” with my husband, George Clooney. Oh wait…he’s not my husband, however he does want me. He just doesn’t know it.
bossy's friend amy saysJanuary 4, 2010 at 8:39 am
did the whole family go to paris with you to see “Ou Sont Passes Les Morgan?”
kristin @ going country saysJanuary 4, 2010 at 8:54 am
Maybe that’s Hugh’s idea of how a cowboy stands. And I really hope to never see him in a cowboy hat again. It’s just not natural.
corrie saysJanuary 4, 2010 at 9:10 am
Bossy’s friend Amy is tres droll!
Peg saysJanuary 4, 2010 at 9:21 am
Trop mignon, Bossy. Bonne Annee!
josh saysJanuary 4, 2010 at 9:39 am
Of all the movies you could have seen, you saw this? For serial?
David saysJanuary 4, 2010 at 9:40 am
Oops, that was me. I can’t imagine HOW Josh’s name showed up by mistake.
Amy @ Bitchin' Wives Club saysJanuary 4, 2010 at 9:43 am
This movie looks like the worst kind of Hollywood dreck…. I am sorry to hear that you finally made it out the movies and this is what you saw! Tragedy!! (And makes me think it will be another eon before you make it back again.)
I do recall you tweeting something about trying to find a movie for the family…. I feel somewhat responsible now simply b/c I didn’t send you a suggestion!
AND: I am sorry to hear that the last of Hugh Grant’s charm has shriveled up and oozed out to clog a pool filter somewhere in Hollywood. He shoulda stayed in England. 😉
Marinka saysJanuary 4, 2010 at 9:53 am
Did Bossy see this movie in France? Or in a country that Marinka thinks is France?
muskrat saysJanuary 4, 2010 at 10:30 am
Just added this to my “things not to do” list for this month. Thanks!
Gail K. saysJanuary 4, 2010 at 10:34 am
Looks like you could put Debra Winger and John Travolta’s heads on those bodies and call it Urban Cowboy in the last shot.
Hugh Grant and SJP = put me to sleep.
The Domestic Goddess saysJanuary 4, 2010 at 10:35 am
Two of my least fav actors + movie = not going to see it. Or rent it.
Martha In Kansas saysJanuary 4, 2010 at 10:49 am
Why, your last movie was about when mine was! Thanks for the synopsis. I’ll wait for it to show on TV — my preferred movie source.
Denise saysJanuary 4, 2010 at 10:58 am
Ditto comment #1.
Audubon Ron saysJanuary 4, 2010 at 11:17 am
Did you hear about the Morgasms? When it comes to Parker and Grant, I’m not a user. I also don’t use Pitt, Jolie, Kidman, Baldwin (any and all), Cruise and Michael Moore.
Of course, you should never trust the opinion of a guy who eats cold meatloaf for breakfast. That would be me.
The Cheap Chick saysJanuary 4, 2010 at 11:21 am
I make all my movie-going choices based on the hotness of the men therein. Thus, I saw Sherlock Holmes this weekend. Robert Downey, Jr. = YUM.
And then I promptly had a heart-attack due to the ticket price. $10?!?!?! Ouch.
Ris saysJanuary 4, 2010 at 11:36 am
Yeesh, that movie looked truly terrible. Thanks for subjecting yourself to it so that we didn’t have to.
Michelle M. saysJanuary 4, 2010 at 11:37 am
I saw It’s Complicated starring Meryl Streep, Alec Baldwin, Steve Martin and Pottery Barn.
Martie saysJanuary 4, 2010 at 11:47 am
Whew, I almost went to see the Morgans today–until my kids begged for Alvin instead…Sigh. There were a few Spanish speaking individuals who jabbered, I mean, talked, all through the movie so it counts as a “cultured” event I suppose.
Meg at the Members Lounge saysJanuary 4, 2010 at 12:29 pm
We did avant-noon showing of It’s Complicated for 6 bucks, and promptly spent our savings on apres show Bloody Mary’s! Love the Pottery Barn credit, Michelle.
WebSavvyMom saysJanuary 4, 2010 at 12:53 pm
–>I haven’t gone to the movies in years mainly because I have to wear shoes, something that isn’t happy pants, the theater refuses to pause things when I need to powder my nose plus there is no beer!
Hello – – Netflix!
linlah saysJanuary 4, 2010 at 1:10 pm
I’m reading between the lines here and I’m getting two thumbs up, right?
Jenn @ Juggling LIfe saysJanuary 4, 2010 at 1:26 pm
I can’t believe Bossy missed the memo on what a crap movie that was–bummer.
Lisa saysJanuary 4, 2010 at 1:51 pm
Saw “Up in the Air’ which was adorable. I haven’t laughed so hard and so long with “It’s Complicated”.
Half Assed Kitchen saysJanuary 4, 2010 at 1:54 pm
Hugh Grant has always been a lot stiff.
Ms. Cranky Pants saysJanuary 4, 2010 at 1:57 pm
The movie should have been subtitled, “Eww Can’t is flat broke and desperately needs a comeback but tragically picked the wrong vehicle so please have mercy.” Or, “Brother, Can you spare $10 for Eww’s sake?” Or, “Have debt, will make B movies”
Shelley saysJanuary 4, 2010 at 2:31 pm
There are so many movies out right now that I want to see, like Sherlock Holmes (my love for RDJ knows no bounds), Up in the Air (Ditto George Clooney), Precious and The Blind Side. Are you saying that I can skip the Morgans? Not that it was on my list anyway, but I’m glad to know it sucks.
Lo saysJanuary 4, 2010 at 4:07 pm
Maria saysJanuary 4, 2010 at 4:20 pm
Sarah, Sarah, Sarah….you have too many cheek bones, I want to feed you and Hugie…let’s talk about chiropractors.
Bush Babe (of Granite Glen) saysJanuary 4, 2010 at 6:20 pm
Bossy, you and your commenters are the funniest dags ever (and while that sounds nasty, it’s really a compliment!). Monsieur Grant looks a little sad in this review – why is his belt buckle so askew? A deep question that requires some investigation I believe…
NellyFrittata saysJanuary 4, 2010 at 6:22 pm
If you enjoy inter-species love stories (and who doesn’t), you will like Avatar.
Sissy in Texas saysJanuary 4, 2010 at 7:20 pm
Are you sure Hugh Grant played a man?
Doug Richardson saysJanuary 4, 2010 at 9:59 pm
Thanks for taking one for your Council
dgm saysJanuary 4, 2010 at 10:29 pm
The spoiler here is that Sarah Jessica Parker played a woman.
The Zadge saysJanuary 4, 2010 at 10:32 pm
LOL! Siskel and Ebert should be very afraid.
Cupcake Murphy saysJanuary 4, 2010 at 10:37 pm
Did anyone in the movie explain why Sarah Jessica Parker decided to part her hair in the middle? The ads for this movie have me reeling from her Herman Munster horseface at every traffic light.
jeanne Greenwald saysJanuary 5, 2010 at 12:06 am
the trailer for that movie was so painful… Bossy should go see Up in the Air.
Bossy came and saw my surfers. Did Bossy see the blue moon photo I cadged from an NPR (i credited it!) site? I had to do something to improve that yawner.
I agree, a few of those boys were yummy. Perhaps, husband material for Bossy?
moe99 saysJanuary 5, 2010 at 1:06 am
It is my hope that someday soon, Bossy will review the new biography out about Warren Beatty and his 12,775 girlfriends. Or thereabouts.
meribon saysJanuary 5, 2010 at 10:02 am
oh man, I just laughed out loud. hillarious!
Ellie saysJanuary 5, 2010 at 10:11 am
Liz saysJanuary 5, 2010 at 3:05 pm
Thank you thank you thank you thank you for the statements about SJP’s eyeliner. What the hell? I really liked her but she’s making it difficult for me to continue to do so.
Manic Mommy saysJanuary 5, 2010 at 6:41 pm
I actually paid to see Hugh in Music and Lyrics. With Drew. Barrymore. I paid. But this looks worse.
meleah rebeccah saysJanuary 5, 2010 at 10:31 pm
Its been WAY too long since Meleah has stopped by Bossy’s blog, and Meleah forgot just how much Bossy makes her laugh.
Kendra Delanno saysJanuary 14, 2010 at 7:36 am
Definitely husband material! hahaha well he passes the test on Kay Circle anyway: http://www.kaycircle.com/index.php?q=10-Signs-that-your-Boyfriend-is-Husband-Material%20
