and 'The Decoy Bride'
The good news: Doctor Who's David Tennant
is starring in a romantic comedy, The Decoy Bride.
The bad news: the movie is mediocre at best.
The film is opening on Friday (March 9) only in New York and Los Angeles.
But take heart, true blue Tennant fans, because Bride is available in 50 million U.S. homes via video on demand (check with your local cable company).
In Bride, Tennant
, 40, plays the male lead opposite Kelly Macdonald (No Country for Old Men and HBO's Boardwalk Empire).
and Macdonald do get a few amusing scenes in which they bicker relentlessly, but nothing they say is clever or biting enough to make Bride seem like more than warmed over, romantic comedy oatmeal.
Single best and worst part: Tennant
spends much of the final third of the movie traipsing about in a circa 1978 outfit, squeezed into bright plaid, bell bottom pants, a clashing paisley shirt and a fur-trimmed leather vest.

Based on that trailer, it's not the kind of movie I'd see in the theater or seek out on Netflix.
But I might watch it when it airs on a movie channel, and the fact that Tennant
is in it would make me more likely to watch it.

I figure if I could sit through the remake of "Fright Night" (which was about as mediocre a film as one could get), I can sit through any film of David Tennant
I'll Netflix anything David
is in, regardless of its quality.
Case in point, the remake of Fright Night.
