  • Though the comic confection's clunky moments keep it from achieving soufflé delicacy, its bright zingers and seamless fantasy sequences amp the playfulness, and the mostly unforced performances complement the production's cartoonish exuberance.

  • This candy-coated confection is so irresistible that you're captivated by its sentiment even as you acknowledge its manipulations.

  • If this Semitic "Strictly Ballroom" and its campy, colorful characters (including a hummus baron!) don't win you over, you may want to check your pulse.

  • Fox infuses Cupcakes with Ofer's can-do optimism, where the power of song can overcome any personal or professional strife.

  • The story soon gives way to characters kvetching about romance and the working world, their sentiments recycled from the director's other movies.

  • The contest's rakish, casually sexist compere (Denis Sandler) is also spot on, while many of the international "acts" are hilarious.
