Movie Review: The Decoy Bride

Watched this movie recently.  very fun romantic comedy even if very little surprises.  The premise is THE top eligble movie star  (Alice Eve) is trying to have a nice PRIVATE wedding to author fiance' James (David Tennant).  But the paparazzi keep ruining it.  So they go to a remote Scottish Isle called Hegg where they still are found.  in desparation, her manager hries a local woman (Kelly MacDonald) as a Decoy Bride to fool the journalists.  Typical RomCom style, chaos explodes and romance blooms.  Charming and fun mostly due to the wodnerful performances by MacDonald (who was AMAZING on Boardwalk Empire) and Tennant (my favorite Doctor).  The island setting is what makes it work for me, beautiful and quirky.
