Salmon Fishing in the Yemen
A so-so Friday night film with an attractive cast and a simple, predictable formulaic story line that you have seen many times before -- even the "Dr. Jones" references bring back you know who..
I was expecting more from the film based on its title, I thought it would be metaphorical about overcoming difficulties or daring to dream impossible dreams but it was quite literal and simplistic. The film is very shallow, everyone is just a little too perfect (even the villains).However, Kristin Scott Thomas is hilarious and steals every scenes she is in and Emily Blunt looks great in her London "investment manager" professional girl outfits.
