Critic Reviews of "Salmon Fishing in the Yemen"Time OutApril 17, 2012
The stars are endearing enough to keep things tolerable, though you may wonder why even McGregor's Scots brogue sounds artificially sweetened here.Miami HeraldMarch 29, 2012
Hallstrom shores up his film with a terrific cast that can often make up for the parts that sag under the uneven weight of preciousness.St. Louis Post-DispatchMarch 23, 2012
It's an engaging love story that should appeal to moviegoers with a flair for the offbeat.Seattle TimesMarch 22, 2012
Only Scott Thomas, biting off all her sentences like a piranha, rescues "Salmon Fishing" from being a by-the-numbers romantic comedy; you wish the redoubtable Ms. Maxwell had her own movie.Minneapolis Star TribuneMarch 22, 2012
While "Salmon Fishing" fritters away the comic momentum of its madcap opening chapters, it's like angling -- a pleasant diversion if you can look below the surface and muster the patience to appreciate it.Arizona RepublicMarch 22, 2012
A charming little movie.Epoch TimesJuly 01, 2016
Hallström's made a wonderful film about the power of faith. Flyfishing in a manufactured trout stream in the middle of the desert is a faith-based activity, declares the sheik who built it.The PlaylistAugust 15, 2013
It's an affable, inoffensive British comedy that just wants you to like it so much that you can't help but snicker behind its back.The Patriot LedgerJune 02, 2013
To say this movie requires an utter suspension of disbelief is a vast understatement.Las Vegas CityLifeApril 21, 2013
... just because something seems absurd doesn't mean it can't happen. And just because a film seems to lack surprises doesn't mean it won't take an entirely satisfying turn at the end.We Got This CoveredSeptember 15, 2012
As it stands, the best elements of the film become mired in the unwelcome narrative muck, branding Salmon Fishing in the Yemen the one that got away.Scene-Stealers.comSeptember 04, 2012
Everything that happens is horribly predictable, and the tone varies from light and fluffy to over-the-top camp, especially with Kristin Scott Thomas as the cynical British press secretary.
