Academy Award winner Catherine Zeta-Jones (Chicago) teams with Academy Award-nominated director Scott Hicks (Shine) for this remake of the 2001 smash-hit German comedy Bella Martha about a frosty, workaholic, perfectionist chef who must surrender some control of her restaurant to a carefree male colleague (Aaron Eckhart - Paycheck, Erin Brockovich) when she becomes the guardian of her willful young niece (Abigail Breslin - Little Miss Sunshine) after the girl's parents are involved in a tragic accident. With its tantalizing blend of comedy, romance and food, No Reservations is a feast to savor.
Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: This romantic comedy may look good on paper, but it's too predictable and melancholy for the genre.

Common Sense Says
Bland-but-sweet dramedy more for adult palates.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this romantic comedy has some serious themes, like the death of a single parent and an aunt who must care for her orphaned niece. Although it's rated PG and stars popular child actress Abigail Breslin, the film's protagonist, an emotionally withdrawn chef who doesn't have any healthy relationships, is not going to seem compelling to most kids. The dramedy also perpetuates the idea that ambitious, professionally successful women all have lonely personal lives. Still, at its heart, this is the typical odd-couple romantic movie with a little girl thrown in to stir the pot.
