A zillionaire Yemeni sheik likes fly fishing, so his British aide (Emily Blunt) enlists the help of a fisheries expert (Ewan McGregor) to bring 10,000 salmon to his desert country.

This movie is heavy on talk, light on action, and feels like a true story (but isn't). McGregor and Blunt make a good, low-key couple and Amr Waked is excellent as the kindly sheik. Kristin Scott Thomas steals the show, however, in a small but witty part as a Ministry official; she gives her trademark sarcastic performance and injects much needed humor into an otherwise tepid story.

This is a sweet, but slow and predictable story (I wouldn't call it a romantic comedy) that would be of particular interest to fly fishing fans. 3.5 stars.
