5. Salmon Fishing in the Yemen
This adaptation of Paul Torday‘s British bestseller about a consultant (Emily Blunt) and a fisheries expert (Ewan McGregor) who join forces to help a sheik bring salmon fishing to his Middle East country. The source material is a biting satire, but, according to reviews, the film is your standard romantic comedy. But the likes of Blunt, McGregor, and Kristin Scott Thomas can elevate almost anything.
