Feast of Love is bathed in the dark wood and lengthening shadows of a serious movie, but it ultimately can't reconcile its humanism with its fatalism.

Benton has made better movies about doomed marriages (Kramer vs. Kramer), but this one has no organic reality.

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

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.

Feast of Love weaves its way through the frustrated loves of couples in Portland Oregon who don't have much else to do besides reflect on what they have won and lost in romance.

A ruthlessly winsome movie

A fairly conservative and mundane character drama that doesn't offer any true proof of the joy and wonders of love promised by the title.

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

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

Moviegoers beware: nausea is a prime side effect of consuming Feast of Love, an extraordinarily inane multi-character saga about the complexities of love from Robert Benton

Everyone in Feast of Love is messed up in some way, but none of those ways make them interesting.

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

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

If Feast of Love was indeed a food, it would be a purposeless pan pizza decorated with every topping on the melodrama menu and extra schmaltz inserted into the talky, twice baked crust.

There's something endearing in the way Benton assumes a little full-frontal is enough to erase the bile that develops watching this agonizing marathon of navel-gazing.

"The Feast of Love" is a hodgepodge of sentimentality that's neither funny nor tragic. It's just bland.

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.

It's like Friends without the funny. Oh, wait -- that's redundant.
