Netflix Picks: The Decoy Bride

We’re trying to save money at our house so instead of having DirecTV (miss it!), we have Netflix for only $7.99 a month. We weren’t sure if, after a while, there would be enough interesting stuff on Netflix to continue to enjoy it, but we’ve been wandering around the lists. Our Instant Queue went from about ten items to just over a hundred in the last couple of months.

The question is – is there anything good on Netflix?

Every Friday I’m going to try to answer that question for you. Today I’m going to tell you about my favorite never-heard-of-it movie to date – The Decoy Bride. The reason I put this film in my queue is because of David Tennant, the best Doctor Who ever!  🙂

But Kelly Macdonald, the main actress in the movie, was also fabulous. I couldn’t think of why she seemed familiar until I went to IMDB – she’s the voice of the girl in the new animated movie, Brave. Yay! Love her!

Now there are a lot of movies out there with great actors that are kind of crap movies. The Decoy Bride is not one of them. It was fun and funny and sweet and romantic! I loved it so much, I left it in my queue to watch it again!

If you like these actors, if you like fun romantic comedies, if you like movies set in Scotland with quirky secondary characters, you’ll like The Decoy Bride.

So far, this is one of the only shows I’ve given 5 stars – I love this movie!
