My wife asked me if I wanted to see this movie because of the characters fly fishing in the commercial! However, it is clearly a love story/chick flick type of deal- Don't be fooled!

Yep. my wife suckered me with that "Catch and Release" movie a couple years ago. At least it had Kevin Smith in it and Jennifer Garner isnt tough on the eyes.

I always get mad when hollywood tries to touch on fly fishing. They get it wrong every time.

Even ARRTI? Just read a great article about the 20th anniversary of the movie which talked about the efforts made to get the fishing right:

might be entertaining. I may go see it. I am a ewan fan after he and charley did long way around and long way down. they are both the real deal when it comes to motorcycles. not sure about ewan and fishing though!
here's a link to the long way around trailer, I watch the movie every winter and dream about trips.

' A River Runs Through It' is the exception, but there are still some things they must have overlooked. One scene shows them fishing with only a 10-inch tippet between the fly-line and the fly, but maybe i'm being too critical.

Yea you gotta see it squatch, i am pretty sure it is the scene where brad pitt catches the big one. Anyhow regardless of any imperfections it's still a great movie.

Alright...I'm gonna check it out. I never critiqued it from a technical perspective, just always enjoyed the film for the story. Could be fun trying to poke holes in all the FFing stuff.

Did anyone ever see either of the two versions of "The River Why", based on the Davis James Duncan book?

Here's a synopsis from the movie's web site:

From the beloved director of Chocolat and the Oscar®-winning screenwriter of Slumdog Millionaire comes the inspirational comedy Salmon Fishing in the Yemen. A visionary sheik (Amr Waked) believes his passion for the peaceful pastime of salmon fishing can enrich the lives of his people, and he dreams of bringing the sport to the not so fish-friendly desert. Willing to spare no expense, he instructs his representative (Emily Blunt) to turn the dream into reality, an extraordinary feat that will require the involvement of Britain's leading fisheries expert (Ewan McGregor) who happens to think the project both absurd and unachievable. That is, until the Prime Minister's overzealous press secretary (Kristin Scott Thomas) latches on to it as a 'good will' story. Now, this unlikely team will put it all on the line and embark on an upstream journey of faith and fish to prove the impossible, possible.

And here's the trailer:

I watched the trailer. It looks pretty good and it has a good cast, which always helps.
