Salmon Fishing in the Yemen (2011) - Comedy | Drama | Romance

Salmon Fishing in the Yemen (2011) - BAD MOVIE

  It all started off as a good idea - a love story, a daft scientist, a gentle, but crazy project... But, where did it go wrong? Well, the story is a mish-mash, it tries to be romantic, it tries to be funny and somehow these get in the way of each other. Situations are set up and then there is a twist. Over and over again. Very few things happen that are not predictable. Westerners and the Arab elite have been portrayed as far superior to the ignorant masses, despite the fact the country belongs to these masses and let's not forget the fate visited on the poor fish in this story, which by the way was not believable. I read somewhere that the book was a satire; sadly, this movie is a failed rom-com.
