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.
Proves an uneasy fit for mature leads Gershon and Matthew Modine, who struggle valiantly to appear clueless enough to make their characters' goofy behavior credible.
