Watching "The Decoy Bride". It is giving me great glee. It is like a particularly entertaining L.M. Montgomery story but with the Doctor and Merida *cough* I mean Tennant and Kelly MacDonald. Like a Montgomery story, the mystery is not what's going to happen but how it's going to happen and on which scenic landscape shot it is going to occur.

Out of curiosity, let's see...well, rotten tomatoes obviously has no taste. 23/47? Critics who fail to appreciate the value (and rarity) of smartly written fluff. A few scenes threaten to veer into tasteless caricature, but through good acting and some directorial restraint they just add a little background. This movie isn't pressing to recreate cinema, and it doesn't waste screen time trying to be anything it's not.
