  • A fumbled attempt at modern romantic comedy.

    March 9, 2007 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    March 1, 2007 | Full Review…
  • The film isn't believable for a second.

    November 8, 2006
  • The film's leisurely pacing -- and Modine's overly laid-back work -- leave something to be desired.

    October 6, 2006 | Rating: 2/4
  • Writer-director Claudia Myers' clunky debut feature makes the case that first-timers should probably focus on either writing or directing.

    October 6, 2006 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • 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.

    February 1, 2008 | Full Review…
  • 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
