NO RESERVATIONS (2007 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.3|5.0 Starsìììì

No Reservations shows well due to its well-written script accompanied by high quality acting by both Aaron Eckhart and Catherine Zeta-Jones. Watch for Patricia Clarkson playing the restaurant boss.

Storyline

Head chef Kate (Catherine Zeta-Jones) finds herself exceptionally challenged as she tries to cope with her sister’s death, takes on the responsibility of raising her young niece Zoe (Abigail Breslin), and deals with career challenges after her boss Paula (Patricia Clarkson) hires a new sous chef Nick (Aaron Eckhart).

Additional Thanks


Thank you to Director Scott Hicks for directing efforts. Thank you to Executive Producers Bruce Berman and Susan Cartsonis for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Leah (Jenny Wade), Therapist (Bob Balaban), Sean (Brian F. O-Byrne), Bernadette (Lily Rabe), and John (Eric Silver).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. The movie nicely fits the light, romantic comedy genre and doesn’t pander or narrow itself to ‘chick flick only’ status.
