"I found this movie to be very entertaining. It was a light romance film with some humor. It lacked the over-the-top action of things getting blown up, shot, eviscerated, etc. which I considered a plus. The emphasis was on character interactions and story progression. It was very fictional and for that reason the reality of what Yemen is and represents had to be suspended in my mind. However, this is true for most movies. The sheik was a idealistic representation of a wise, tolerant, and beneficent ruler. As for the salmon, who knows whether that could be done in real life. It didn't matter for purposes of the film."
I liked the characters a lot - especially the guy played by Ewan McGregor. I much enjoyed the movie and, on a scale of ten, give it ★★★★★★★★.
