When you hear the movie title, "Salmon Fishing In The Yemen", you think what?  Documentary?  A film for ambitious anglers? It's actually a charming love story set against a preposterous idea.

Funny and poignant, this movie is delightful. Ewan McGregor and Emily Blunt have chemistry in spades.   You can tell they like each other on screen and off. If you're looking for a feel-good movie this spring then this is it.  I'm giving "Salmon Fishing In The Yemen" four out of five reels in the reel world.
