    Frank Scheck The Hollywood Reporter

    A bland romantic comedy in the Richard Curtis style, The Decoy Bride is mainly notable for its proof, if any was needed after "Boardwalk Empire," that Kelly Macdonald is a major talent. show more

    It's indulgent, but Macdonald's performance is attractive and relaxed. show more

    Is that the worst movie ever ? YES, slept in the middle of it because it\'s really boring. Don\'t you guys get this movie to watch. Save your money to something much better.
