Movie Info

A cozy coffeehouse serves as the setting for director John Cosgrove's over-caffeinated tale of sexual peccadilloes and complicated relationships starring Mena Suvari, Katherine Heigl, and Breckin Meyer. It's a typical lunch hour in London, and The Black Cat Café is fast filling up with patrons whose sexual lives have become a tangled web of infidelity, kinky idiosyncrasies, and betrayal. Stoned on some of the most potent weed in jolly old England, a neurotic young commitment-phobe attempts to … More

About as appetizing as a pot of dishwater coffee.

The claustrophobic and poorly executed Caffeine is either a play in search of a movie or a movie in search of a play but, either way, it's searching for the wrong thing.

[An] overly antic coffeehouse comedy.

Top Critic

A witless examination of relationships and day jobs, Cosgrove's would-be comedy finds little humor in issues of infidelity, heartbreak (and bodily functions), resulting in a film that's hopelessly amateurish and creatively destitute.

Overall, those are 88 minutes I desperately wish I could get back.

Audience Reviews for Caffeine

I feel guilty rating this a three in case anyone actually thinks it's good and rents it out on my recommendation! However, it did manage to hold my attention, maybe due to the horror of Mena Suvari and an "uglifed" Katherine Heigl, doing really bad English accents. Why they didn't just leave this set in the US and use their own accents, I have no idea, it would have worked just as well, and there was no real reason for it to be set in the UK anyhow! I rated it a three because that's kind of my "average" rating, and I did find it interesting enough to watch it all the way through, (which I originally doubted I would be able to do!), and found it okay even with the bad acting, bad accents and bad story! Rent at your own risk!

Any movie that is based in a coffee shop in London is okay by me. This cafe just happens to be full of very disturbing characters and it was entertaining in a strange way.
