A Hollywood star (Alice Eve) attempts to marry her writer fiancé (David Tennant) away from the prying eyes of the world's press in this home-grown romantic comedy. But when the couple escape to a remote (and sparsely populated) Scottish island and still find paparazzi in pursuit, it's up to Kelly Macdonald's unlucky-in-love local girl to help them out by acting as a marital stand-in. Can you guess what happens next? Director Sheree Folkson's feature debut owes much to
It Happened One Night
The Runaway Bride
and Ealing, but without really doing justice to any of them. The scenery (the Isle of Man stands in for Scotland some of the time) is pretty, the cast is OK (Dylan Moran, James Fleet and
Michael Urie make appearances) and it's all perfectly amiable, but sadly the script is just too dull to raise anything but a slight smile.
A movie star plans to get married on a remote Scottish island, but does not want the press invading the ceremony. She hires a local woman recovering from a recent heartbreak to pose as her and throw the paparazzi off the scent, but her fiance starts to wonder if he would rather marry the fake bride instead. Romantic comedy, starring Kelly Macdonald, David Tennant, Alice Eve and Dylan Moran.
