Audience Reviews for Better than Chocolate


I like this movie. It is so cute.

Leigh Ryan

Super Reviewer

Interesting, but nothing more than that. I loved the crazy idea with the books in ice.

Anastasia Bartzoulianou

Super Reviewer


There were many little flaws in this film, and some story directions I would have done differently, but it was an enjoyable piece and one of the better Canadian-born films.

Love Karyn,
