Meryl and Paul Morgan have separated since his infidelity. He's a Manhattan lawyer, seeking forgiveness. She's moved on, focusing on real estate sales. As he walks her to an appointment one evening, pleading his case, they witness a murder, and the murderer sees them. The F.B.I. wants them in Witness Protection until the killer is caught. He's already hunting them. The F.B.I. sends them to Ray, Wyoming, a tiny ranch town, where they stay with the aging Sheriff and his gun-toting wife (who's his Deputy). Meryl and Paul must sort out their relationship while their New York City ways bump up against those of the West. Meantime, Meryl knows two things that Paul doesn't.
We're not in Manhattan anymore.

When the Morgans fly out of New York City, it is obviously bright daylight. However, when they arrive in Wyoming it seems to be twilight. Unless the jet is very slow or they had a layover, this is impossible. New York City is in the Eastern Time Zone and Wyoming is in the Mountain Time Zone. Therefore, they would have GAINED 2 hours when flying toward the west. It should have still been bright daylight. See more

Uh, hello, it is me, your uh... your husband, um... at least legally uh... still your husband, as recognized by the state of New York, and uh... in the end, who would argue with the governor? I uh...
