TOP 500 REVIEWERon January 28, 2011
When I first saw the trailer for this movie I thought this was going to be some light rom com. Be prepared for serious tearing up in this one as, although it has its comic moments, it's a movie that knocks you for a loop. I won't spoil anything for anyone but it has both tears of joy and sadness.

I thought the casting was terrific from Catherine Zeta-Jones, Aaron Eckhart and Abigail Breslin (who could have come across as cute yet cloying but really was terrific in this as a kid whose world changes in an instant).

The DVD extra (there's only one) is a look at how the main actors prepared for their roles as chefs. It's an episode of "Unwrapped" from the Food Network and is really a fantastic insight into the way actors work.

This item came in very good time, and, as I had missed the ending when it was on television, it was great to be able to purchase the movie to finish off what I had started watching!

This was a good movie for our grand'daughter. Nothing inappropriate and the little actress in the movie was the same age.

Une jeune femme dans la trentaine qui consacre toute sa vie à son travail de chef d'un grand restaurant voie du jour au lendemain sa vie complètement chamboulé quand sa soeur décède d'un tragique accident de voiture et qu'elle obtient la garde de sa petite nièce. S'en suivra un très long apprentissage pour cette femme qui ne connait rien aux enfants, ne sait pas que la haute cuisine est sans doute le dernier de leur préoccupation, que pour eux la simplicité est bien plus exquise et agréable en toute occasion !

Heureusement un aide sera engagé durant sa semaine de repos forcé pour qu'elle puisse reprendre ses esprits. Cet homme sera la clé de bien des problèmes, il réussira a apprivoiser tranquillement autant la petite que la tante pour enfin lui faire voir que dans la vie faire confiance aux autres n'est pas toujours une mauvaise chose et qu'il n'est pas absolument nécessaire de tout contrôler pour que cela soit bien fait et que si même la perfection n'est pas toujours au rendez-vous cela n'est pas la fin du monde !

La petite fille dans ce film est tout simplement adorable, elle est fort bien joué et vraiment elle m'a rapidement conquise, c'est fou comme certain jeune peuvent avoir du talent et ce de façon naturelle !

HALL OF FAMEon December 22, 2007
Billed as a romantic comedy, there are two things you should know about this movie.
1. It's not a comedy
2. It isn't very romantic

Catherine Zeta-Jones plays Kate, an obsessive master chef who works so hard at her profession that she has no time for heating anything except pots and pans.

Abigail Breslin plays Zoe, Kate's niece. She's not feeling very sunshine-y since the tragic event that leads up to her having to live with Kate.

Aaron Eckhart plays Nick, an opera singing all around good guy who's hired as Kate's sous-chef without her prior approval.

Short Attention Span Summary (SASS)

See Kate cook
Cook, Kate, cook
See Zoe
Poor Zoe
Zoe has to live with Kate
Kate hasn't a clue
See Nick
Nick cooks too
See Nick and Kate cook
See Nick and Kate fight
See predictable ending

This is a very light movie that will be a good choice for spending a lazy afternoon watching cable when you've nothing better to do. Zeta-Jones is good, even though Eckhart steals every scene he's in, but the main attraction is the food. As a matter of fact, it's quite likely that you'll find yourself getting hungry for gourmet treats about half way through the movie.

Shallow but watchable, the thing that ruins this movie is that darned predictability thing.
Rated: 3.5 stars
