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

    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.

Boardwalk's Kelly Macdonald is brilliant as the charismatic center of this little movie, which continues a tradition of classic Scottish charmers like Local Hero. Full Review »

The acting was sucky, the jokes were stupid, and it just MADE NO SENSE!! I didn't know what was going on! This was so horrifyingly bad that I am actually impressed by this atrocious excuse for entertainment. Wow....just wow.... Full Review »
