Feast of Love (2007)

Though beautifully photographed, Feast of Love offers little beyond a trite, melodramatic character drama.

A would-be-wistful dramedy that's almost insufferably full of itself.

It's episodic and I'd say I liked about 60 percent of it and about 40 percent of it I could leave, but it's just enough for me to say it's worth seeing.

At one point he tells a love-struck friend, 'I think I'd proceed with caution.' I'd proceed just as cautiously to the movie.

Multiple narratives are fluidly interwoven and the writing is often inspired, resulting in dialogue that feels honest and insightful, if occasionally mannered.

Director Robert Benton finds an emotional through line in a format that might have easily broken down into a series of disconnected anecdotes with little to nourish us.

It's a worthy effort, even as it does fall short; a good meal but hardly a feast.

There's only so much Freeman's gorgeous voiceover can do to hold it all together.

A ruthlessly winsome movie

August 27, 2009 Full Review Source: CinePassion

Only the romance of two brittle twentysomethings (Toby Hemingway and Alexa Davalos) breaks free of the faux profundity and tedium that swallow up this feast whenever the characters leave the bedroom.

Feast of Love is a multi-layered -- layers of baloney -- tale of pursuit of love.

Let Google point you to this movie's finer moments, and leave the rest. It's really that bad.

An overwhelming, yet boring mess.

it was definitely an interesting movie that caught my attention more than I ever expected it would

Feast of Love is the kind of movie that gets conveniently omitted from résumés.

Thanks to his excellent cast, and a very light touch, Benton makes these tangled relationships both real and touching.

The majority of the film is filled with arguing, betrayal and fear with a twinge of hope.

A disarmingly moving film about love, relationships and secret lives.

Feast of Love will fill you up with trite dialogue and sappy plot contrivances.

Salvaged from a tendency towards self-indulgent, far too self-conscious sentimentality, by a graceful literary elegance and sensitively shaped, meditative flow. A feast for the mind and soul.

Has just enough honesty and heart to redeem it.

Uneven adult romantic drama doesn't stint on sex.

It says something when even a classic Morgan Freeman performance can't bring Feast of Love a smidge closer to realism. In other words, he can't be blamed for headlining an untenable movie.

October 20, 2007 Full Review Source:

Nice to look at, but about as weighty as the froth atop a tall skim latte.

October 20, 2007 Full Review Source:

Sad as he may be in Feast of Love, Harry makes earnest efforts to inspire laughter in his sad friends and acquaintances.

October 19, 2007 Full Review Source: PopMatters

Swinging from mildly irritating to rather enjoyable, the film eventually settles at merely watchable.

Audience Reviews for Feast of Love

Thought it would be much better than it was with the outstanding cast. Sadly, it was just another average romcom that didn't really do anything for me except bore me. Morgan Freeman will always be an amazing actor though.

I really liked this movie. Yet another really nice romantic, heart warming drama. Greg Kinnear and Morgan Freeman really do a wonderful job, which really adds to this movie for me.

Yes a big sappy love-fest. But incredibly earnest about it.

A touching, passionate, charming, funny and very effective film. Heart-breaking, powerful, exceptional and satisfying. An absolutely marvelous and wonderful movie. It's a feast of laughs ad heart. Sexy, inteligent and extroadinary. Romantic dramas like this rarely come around. Outragiously clever dialouge and wonderful direction. A great cast. Greg Kinnear and Morgan Freeman have never been better or funnier. They have such outstanding chemistry together which makes the film even more enjoyable. Kinnear is magnificent. Freeman is excellent. This movie shows the heart break and strength of love.
