georgepren George Prentice Just attended the world premiere of Salmon Fishing in the Yemen. What? Take my word. It's a beautiful smart romantic film.
Some journalists have been posted their reviews as well, but are a little more mixed than the audience reaction:
This reviewer loved it:
"If I were to tell you what Salmon Fishing in the Yemen is about, I might lose your interest. Suffice to say that it is one of the most surprising, refreshing, smart romantic comedies in quite some time"
Variety not so much, though Tom does get a mention:
"As Fred and Harriet grow closer -- to the extent they agree to address one another on first-name terms -- whatever passion they feel is complicated by the fact he has an independent-minded wife (Rachael Sterling) and she has a military b.f. (Tom Mison) missing in the field. Granted, love is undeniably more interesting that talk of "migratory salmonids," but romance doesn't necessarily follow from their respective circumstances."
Screen Daily thinks it's a crowd pleaser:
"A preposterous pipe dream nourishes an unlikely romance in Salmon Fishing In The Yemen, a handsome, undemanding adaptation of the bestselling Paul Torday novel. The combination of broad comedy and syrupy romance may be more of an audience pleaser than a critical favourite but stars Emily Blunt and Ewan McGregor display a pleasing chemistry that lends some charm to an uneven piece."
