Ewan McGregor plays a nerdy scientific expert on fish is pressured into helping a Yemeni sheikh develop the salmon industry in Yemen. Emily Blunt plays an agent for the Sheikh and her job is to see that McGregor complies and the Sheikh is willing to spend whatever to get the project completed no matter how unlikely the possibilities are for this type of industry in Yemen, which is highly composed of desert, which seemingly is not that conducive to the health and breeding of salmon. Hilarious at times, something not often seen in Islamic countries like Yemen.

An entertaining movie in the way that small British movies are entertaining. Not to be missed: Ewan McGregor skipping down the street to the tune of a traditional Scottish wedding dance: «Step we gaily on we go, heel for heel and toe for toe, arm in arm and row on row, all for Mairi's Wedding.»

This is a very entertaining movie - albeit a little contrived to suit the mood. It was a novel idea and I think an attempt at bridge building in a world where there is still too much fighting over our different beliefs.

LOVED this movie, watch it , you won't be disappointed!!!

Great movie, funny, and well plotted. Get it! You won't be disappointed. The song that plays at the ending credits Where You Go by the Young Romans was a beautiful way to close the story.

Unusual story but totally delightful. Funny and sad. Great acting especially Kristen Scott Thomas. Just the right film when life gets too heavy and you want to see something uplifting and hopeful.

Very enjoyable mix of romantic comedy, political satire, and a liberal dose of idealism that make a fine feel good film. All the players did an excellent job.

"I don't know anyone who goes to church anymore." "Hmm, I don't think I do either." "On Sunday, we go to Target."
