REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Nothing's perfect, but it's worth seeing.    Readers  Be the 1st!

“..the supposedly frothy tone is tarry and flavorless, and the drill is painfully familiar..”
by Michael Atkinson [Village Voice]
“..the cast has charm, and some of lines raise a chuckle, but the story lacks pace, plausibility and surprise..”
by Henry Fitzherbert [Daily Express]
“..so enchanting and funny as the vulnerable heroine that she manages to elevate the proceedings..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]
2 of 5

“..sadly the script is just too ordinary and predictable to raise anything but a slight smile..”
by Jeremy Aspinall [Radio Times]
“..plodding and paltry, Folkson's film looks cheap and like the mock wedding, nothing in it – especially the emotions – feels real, with the quality cast looking understandably disinterested..”
by James Mottram [Total Film]
3 of 5

“..nobody's forecasting gales of laughter, but it'll give your pipes a canny wee toot..”
by Elliott Noble [Sky Movies]

“..like an island vacation, passes pleasantly and all too quickly..”
by Neil Genzlinger [New York Times]

“..less a film, more a bland Britcom box-ticking exercise..”
by Tom Huddleston [Time Out]
2.5 of 4

“..it's perfectly reasonable to appreciate The Decoy Bride as the amusing, perfunctory genre exercise it intends to be..”
by Calum Marsh [Slant Magazine]
3 of 5

“..it's indulgent, but Macdonald's performance is attractive and relaxed..”
by Peter Bradshaw [Guardian [UK]]
Review rate : D+

“..Dylan Moran, Michael Urie, and Federico Castelluccio fill out the talented but ill-used cast, and the Scottish scenery is appropriately pretty..”
by Alison Willmore [AV Club]
