No Reservations was Half a Film…

Hi all…

Another movie I had a chance to see on DVD a few weeks ago was No Reservations, starring Abigail Breslin, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Aaron Eckhart. If I had to give some advice about this film, I’d start it about 45 minutes in. Ignore the beginning and start there, you’ll enjoy it more.

[rating:2/4]

You can see more about this film at IMDB here.

This is the story of the head chef (Zeta-Jones) for a well liked restaurant who suddenly has to take care of her sister’s daughter (Breslin) after a car accident. During this awkward phase, another chef fills in at the restaurant (Eckhart) and makes a mess of things…

What did I like? The relationships seemed genuine between Zeta-Jones, Breslin, and Eckhart once the movie got going.

What didn’t I like? It’s just odd for a film clocked at 104 minutes that the first 45 was throwaway.

Ultimately, I liked the second half of the film. As such, I can’t give it more than 2/4. That’s about half, right?
