Some Good Points

I think this movie had some cute elements, but it did get a little boring in parts. It seems like for it to be as predictable and straight-forward as it was, it should be a true story. The fact that it wasn't makes it somehow bizarre. But Emily Blunt gives an Oscar-worthy performance, and who doesn't love Ewan McGregor? Overall a nice story.


Am I the only person to find this movie boring and hard to get into? I really wanted to like it.

Great Movie

You don't have to like fishing to watch this movie. It is more about relationships between people. Kristin Scott Thomas is fantastic to watch!
