A nerdish fisheries expert (McGregor) and a sophisticated legal aide (Blunt) are recruited by an angling-obsessed sheik (Waked) to realize the vision of the title. What worked on the page is an insubstantial muddle on film, thanks to an unfocused script and Hallström’s preference for broad emotions over subtlety and complexity.
