Este Chocolate podrá ser un poco simple, pero de que sabe rico, ni duda cabe
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
March 19, 2001
A well-made but hokey, shameless movie inexplicably awarded a Best Picture nomination.
Full Review | Original Score: C+

For all its anti-religious and anti-establishment posturing, Chocolat is terribly conventional.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

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.
January 5, 2001
A charming experience full of delightful surprises.
January 5, 2001
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

Filmed so gorgeously, the term eye-candy rolls apropos in the mouth.

January 4, 2001
Punchless storytelling.
January 4, 2001
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.
January 4, 2001
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.
January 4, 2001
