See Kate cook

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
