Director Bryan Singer delivered an exciting and entertaining movie with good performances, despite the fact that no one was calling for Jack and the Beanstalk -- or really any fairy tale, for that matter -- to be made into a movie.
Once again, America has taken a look at the latest revisionist fairy tale and sighed a collective, "Why?" Jack the Giant Slayer flopped at the box-office in its opening weekend, despite a mammoth budget and attractive leads.
Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, is a charming romantic comedy that works because of the chemistry between Ewan McGregor and Emily Blunt, and because Simon Beaufoy's script never reaches for a rowdy joke when it can make a smart one.
With most Hollywood leading men angling to protect their hyper-masculinized public images, Ewan McGregor is a breath of fresh air. While he's certainly secured mainstream appeal with manly roles, he's also never shied away from playing it gay!
