Paul and Meryl Morgan are a well-off New York couple. He's a lawyer and she's in real estate. They are separated because Paul had a one-night affair with someone and Meryl is having a hard time forgiving him. That was the main thing that bothered me about this movie: the repeated reference to his affair and the revelation of another affair. As the previews indicate, they witness a murder and have to enter the witness protection program. They are sent to Ray, Wyoming, a small town very much unlike NYC. In this situation, they become more dependant on each other and, as such, their relationship begins to improve. I found it very interesting how naturally their perspective changed as they were separated from their wealth and they communicated more with each other.
There are many funny moments, and some tense moments as someone finds out where they are. Sam Elliot and Mary Steenburgen are very good as the couple that hides them.
A very entertaining and engaging movie. I highly recommend!
