I feel like there are so many ways this movie could go wrong. So, so many.

And yet...it's a romantic comedy starring Ewan McGregor and Emily Blunt. That ought to count for something, surely?

As long as it is not condescending to the people of Yemen, I'd like to see it. I enjoy the actors. I hate movies that take place in Africa and Asia and the residents are used for background and local color and occasional folk wisdom.

Yes, and that's precisely what I'm worried they might do: the Europeans go abroad and learn about themselves and what "really matters" thanks to the wisdom of the Yemeni people. Fingers crossed, though.
