The Decoy Bride Reviews

Page 1 of 2
James Luxford
The National

A wretched script and sloppy premise is saved from cinema hell by a charming pair of leads, but still, The Decoy Bride fails to raise anything more than a chuckle.

"The Decoy Bride" doesn't offer anything truly original, but as romantic comedies go it makes for a pleasant enough evening. And if you're like me, the scenery is a bonus.

Instead of working to clarify its high-concept contrivances, the romantic comedy "The Decoy Bride" jettisons logic and detail for silly-quirky rompiness.

A woefully pedestrian effort, meant for background noise at a bridal shop, not a feature film that requires the purchase of a ticket.

Possibly the worst thing ever in world history.

It should have been called "I Know Where I'm Gurning".

A bland romantic comedy in the Richard Curtis style, The Decoy Bride is mainly notable for its proof, if any was needed after Boardwalk Empire, that Kelly Macdonald is a major talent.

The Scottish landscapes offer about the only highlight.

A romcom you almost feel sorry for, like a wedding where half the guests drown.

Cupid works in strange and sometimes very funny ways, as this charming, nontaxing comedy directed by Sheree Folkson makes clear.

It's indulgent, but Macdonald's performance is attractive and relaxed.

The cast has charm, and some of lines raise a chuckle, but the story lacks pace, plausibility and surprise.

Movie Talk

Writer Sally Phillips throws in the odd sharp line (love-shy Katie describes herself as 'a man-vegan') but the clumsily contrived plot and a lack of spark between McDonald (engaging) and Tennant (surprisingly under-par) throw the film fatally off course.

Folkson's feature debut owes much to It Happened One Night and the Ealing comedies, but without doing justice to either.

It seems to agree with its gossip journalists that celebrities are an exotic alien species placed on earth to be gawked at, waited on by personal entourages, and mocked behind their backs for their odd enthusiasms and incomprehensible emotions.

Nobody's forecasting gales of laughter, but it'll give your pipes a canny wee toot.

Matthew Turner

Disappointing British romcom that fails to provide either romance or comedy, thanks to a patchy script, some awkward direction and a painful lack of chemistry between the embarrassed-looking leads.

In a script so heavily cut it could be a paper doily, what's left is vaguely cute, rather predictable and wholly insubstantial.

Pernicious tripe suitable only for masochists and the intellectually disabled...

The film recognizes how resolutely derivative it is, and it deigns to relish rather than efface that quality. The result is a trifle, but a fairly amusing one.
