Consensus: This romantic comedy may look good on paper, but it's too predictable and melancholy for the genre.

The cast makes the film a warm and agreeable experience.

Chalk it up as an alternative to watching a kitchen full of singing rats.

No Reservations is worth penciling in to your schedule, though it's more guilty diversion than memorable feast.

A shamelessly microwaved American rewarming of the 2002 German romantic comedy Mostly Martha.

To see No Reservations is to see what's wrong with a lot of American movies. A remake Mostly Martha, it takes a winning recipe and adds some distinctly Hollywood flavors: It takes adult characters and has them behave like children.

Catherine Zeta-Jones controls the kitchen, but can't control my attention.

Ordinary rom-com but Eckhart is appealing.

Catherine Zeta Jones plays Kate, a master chef in an upscale Manhattan Restaurant. The very single Kate has no time for romance as her life runs on planning and… More

More romantic/drama than a comedy. It has more heartfelt, feel good moments than any really laugh out loud scenes. Still it was a nice story, with a good cast… More

Not delightful, not funny, just a rather depressing drama. Everybody is kind of bland in this film, unlike the dishes they prepare. Eckhart plays the typical… More
