If you can't be bothered running a nice warm bath, see this instead.

Este Chocolate podrá ser un poco simple, pero de que sabe rico, ni duda cabe
| Original Score: 3/4
A well-made but hokey, shameless movie inexplicably awarded a Best Picture nomination.
| Original Score: C+
For all its anti-religious and anti-establishment posturing, Chocolat is terribly conventional.
| Original Score: 2/4
The cast is what really puts this lightweight conceit over.
Feels good going down, but for such a sweet movie, the aftertaste is oddly bitter.
Hallstrom is too lazy to bother inventing any new ways to tell this story.
... succeeds mainly because of its excellent cast.
| Original Score: 80/100
A sinfully scrumptious bonbon.
| Original Score: 4/5
Like most food-oriented movies, Chocolat is a sensory treat.
Hallstrom has created the cinematic equivalent of chocolate on screen. Who could resist?
A warm if somewhat contrived movie that it is probably not a good idea to see if you're on a diet.
A charming experience full of delightful surprises.
An interesting, uneven, if entirely predictable fairy-tale comedy featuring some solid acting all around and a cute story which needlessly sticks around way past its final course.
| Original Score: 6/10
Filmed so gorgeously, the term eye-candy rolls apropos in the mouth.
| Original Score: 7/10
Watching Chocolat is like binging on a bottomless box of truffles: Tastes good and sweet at first, but after a while, you start feeling a little green.
Not particularly funny or moving or rich, it seems unsure what kind of chocolate it wants to be.
A sweet if rather tedious fable about acceptance and tolerance. It's treacle, not chocolate.
One of those whimsical concoctions that tries too hard, and goes too long, for its own good.
