Storyline Heading
A visionary sheik has a big dream - to bring salmon fishing to the desert. Willing to spare no expense, he instructs his representative to turn his dream into reality, an extraordinary feat that will require the involvement of Britain's leading fisheries expert who happens to think the project both absurd and unachievable. That is, until the Prime Minister's overzealous press secretary latches on for its potential as a 'good will' story. Now, this unlikely team will put it all on the line and embark on an upstream journey of faith and fish to prove the impossible, possible.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy Drama Romantic - Despite the odd title and unusual plot hook, this is in the end a romantic comedy-drama that will please fans of leads Ewan McGregor and Emily Blunt. Kristin Scott Thomas has a scene-stealing supporting role. Language and brief sexual content make the film inappropriate for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good ...look forward to a nicely crafted love story, some beautifully photographed establishing shots, and an ending that is satisfying in an old-fashioned kind of way. By any name, this is a pleasant diversion.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Above Average The movie comes down to a missed opportunity, with a cornball happy ending. Only Kristin Scott Thomas, as the hypercharged operative for the prime minister, seems to understand she's in a comedy.

Washington Post Full Review
Above Average Viewers who take the sheik's advice and suspend their disbelief, even for a moment, may well find themselves hooked.
