Salmon Fishing in the Yemen (PG-13) 111 minutes B-
Fishes with Feelings
Starring Ewan McGregor, Emily Blunt, Amr Waked and Kristin Scott Thomas
This is a slow moving film that is worth sticking around to the end if you like romantic drama. It was a little hard to give a damn about the sheik with a heart of gold, his passion for salmon fishing, blah blah blah... All I really want to know is, will Emily Blunt and the sour-faced Ewan McGregor ever get together? She has a war hero boyfriend, he has a business driven wife and lifeless marriage. The film keeps you guessing a little, and I have to admit that it won me over in the end. Salmon Fishing also stars Kristin Scott Thomas, who I usually cannot get enough of. But here she is used for comic relief, and I was not impressed. Based on a novel by Paul Torday.
