    A likeable film which at least gives you exactly what it says on the tin - salmon fishing in the Yemen.

    The cast is decent and so is the addition of British political satire, but the whole love story/triangle that evolves is fairly predictable.

    Not even the usually delightful Ewan McGregor and Emily Blunt make Salmon Fishing in the Yemen even remotely enjoyable. I was hoping that Salmon Fishing would be one of those charming, easy to watch, not-really-about-anything-but-has-something sort of films but the whole thing is rather messy. Tonally inconsistent with underdeveloped plot strands and characters, Salmon Fishing in the Yemen is completely disappointing.

    Oh and Kristin Scott Thomas' PG Malcolm Tucker is the worst.

    This didn't really do anything for me. Pretty boring and totally forgettable.

    The only thing that's better than average is Ewan McGregor, his character is funny, cynical and sympathetic at the same time, shame that the story doesn't bring anything extra to the table and is dragged down by several subplots that could have been skipped (terrorists, marriage problems...)

    Delightful yet mad story about a kindly Arab Sheik who wants to make a better life for his people in the Yemen by introducing them to fishing!

    Although not a lot happened, the true story and amazing acting by both Blunt and Mcgregor pulled it through. Most of the funny parts were in the trailer but overall, it was a heartwarming sense of accomplishment.

    Very sweet British romantic comedy and drama directed by Lasse Hallström and starring Ewan McGregor, Emily Blunt, Kristin Scott Thomas and Amr Waked. It was a delight watching this quirky reserved film based on the 2007 novel of the same name by Paul Torday, and following a screenplay by Simon Beaufoy. From my side it was a simple love on first sight with the unusual story: a fisheries expert is recruited by a consultant to help realize a sheikh's vision…

    Enjoyable romantic film with Ewan MacGregor playing a scientist a bit on the spectrum, which is an unusual part for him. Emily Blunt is wonderful, and notably Tom Mison of Sleepy Hollow plays her dreamboat army special forces boyfriend.

    Fantastical plot, but a pleasant diversion.

    Clichéd and corny fishy tale.A British light drama created in that whimsy way with some pleasent cinematography and stock acting.The odd nice touch as it draws to its predictable end.
