Movie Review; The Decoy Bride

Set on the beautiful fictional isle of Hegg, The Decoy Bride boasts incredibly talented actors, brilliant writing and breathtaking scenery.

David Tennant never disappoints, and Kelly MacDonald is the shining star of this film.  This is a feel good movie that Hubs and I love to watch as a great way to unwind at the end of the day and have a good giggle together.


After her musician fiance dumps her, Katie (MacDonald) retreats back to her home on a small Scottish island to live with her mum. Soon after, Hollywood icon Lara Tyler (Alice Eve) decides that the small island would be the ideal setting for her upcoming marriage to author James Arber (Tennant). Despite Laras best efforts to keep the location of her nuptials a secret, soon the paparazzi swarm the island, eager to hit paydirt.  Laras entourage recruit Katie to pose as the bride and walk down the aisle. As James thinks he is sharing vows with Lara, he finds things have gone a bit too far.  Everyone involved discovers just how complicated love can be.

While The Decoy Bride was not a box office hit, it is in my top 5 favorite romantic comedies.  I give it 5 out of 5 popcorn boxes.
