Movie Info

Opposites attract in the close quarters of a one bedroom apartment in this romantic comedy from first-time director Claudia Meyers. Mel (Matthew Modine) plays saxophone with a jazz band, and the only thing he's ever pursued with the same passion as his music is women, whom he loves and leaves on a regular basis. However, Mel has decided it's time that he finally made a commitment to something besides his pet goldfish, and agrees to move in with his latest girlfriend, Inga (Ewa Da Cruz). This

A fumbled attempt at modern romantic comedy.

Myers's script follows the official structural steps of romantic comedy -- we won't belabor you with the details -- but doesn't always heed the most obvious one: Be original.

The film isn't believable for a second.

The film's leisurely pacing -- and Modine's overly laid-back work -- leave something to be desired.

Writer-director Claudia Myers' clunky debut feature makes the case that first-timers should probably focus on either writing or directing.

The first problem in Kettle of Fish, though by no means the last, is to imagine that by mussing up her hair, rumpling her clothes and accessorizing her with glasses and an ugly purse, you could ever make a believable wallflower out of Ms. Gershon.

It has its charms, and to those generally susceptible to well-done examples of genre, it'll probably be a delight.

Claudia Myers fills the movie with the rhythms, jokes and turning points of a sit-com or romantic comedy, making Kettle of Fish a delightful, funny, comfortable diversion

If only there were some spark between Modine and Gershon (who's hampered by an annoying and unnecessary English accent).

There is one truly great scene in this here movie and I'm not too sure if sitting through the awful-to-mediocre crap that precedes and follows it is actually worth the trouble.
