Movie Info

A small-town Canadian waitress pining for the attention of the former high-school football star finds her affections returned from the least likely of places in this entry into the 2005 Vancouver Film Festival from director Vic Sarin. To say that Eve Stuckley (Marla Sokoloff) has a low self-opinion would be an understatement. Though she may not necessarily be Cosmo material, the lovelorn waitress with dreams of being accepted to a New York City art school and a slight case of body dysmorphic disorder just can't seem to catch the eye of town hunk Jeff Sweeney (Barry Watson) -- even though Jeff is best friends with Eve's older brother, Chuck (Jonathan Cherry). When mysterious beauty Linda (Monika Schnarre) breezes into town on business, heads immediately turn and she is soon fending off the advances of both Jeff and Chuck. Despite the attentions lavished on her by the handsome duo, Linda is instead attracted to a lonely waitress whose true beauty has gone sadly unrecognized.

Critic Reviews for Deluxe Combo Platter

Bad Hollywood movies sporting big price tags are one thing -- never much fun to watch, they can at least be a pleasure to ridicule. But a bad Canadian movie done on a shoestring budget is another matter entirely.

Call this menu item not just all-dressed, but overdressed, overwritten and overcooked.

...never quite comes off as anything other than an instantly forgettable, unmistakably Canadian romantic comedy.

Reel Film Reviews

Its bad writing is made worse by sloppy filmmaking -- and it's a shame, because you can see the potential here.
