Menú degustació (Tasting Menu) Reviews

August 30, 2019
This petit bourgeois offering is as unabashedly pretentious as it is stilted, attempting to jackdaw cinematic magic via food porn and various romantic clichés.

Haute-cuisine comedy doesn't deliver on food or laughs.

Tasting Menu is an ensemble piece that is about as light as a puff pastry, though far from as mouthwatering.

An unfortunate misfire in the movies-about-feasts milieu.
May 15, 2014
This particular souffle is both overbaked and underseasoned.
April 22, 2014
This relentlessly mediocre ensemble dramedy features several of the least compelling dinner guests in recent memory.

If this nave magic was available in pill form, I bet it would become a bestseller. Farewell, Zoloft and Lexapro. Welcome, Chakulax.

Nothing truly creates any emotional waves, and little seems at stake, no matter what potential disaster might seem to be in the offing.
April 17, 2014
Unfortunately, Roger Gual's half-baked film hopes to split the difference between romantic comedy and foodie delight but fails at both.
April 17, 2014
Even with such fine actors as Fionnula Flanagan and Stephen Rea in the ensemble, the Spanish-Irish co-production is a flavorless affair that has all the bite of a dining room-bound episode of "The Love Boat."

"Tasting Menu'' is pretty and pleasing, but no more. A bon-bon, not a meal.
April 17, 2014
The lack of true conflict, comedy or even just a hint of spice in this food-themed dramedy leaves viewers feeling unsatiated.
April 17, 2014
The film is so busy attending to all its people that it never manages to adequately serve any of them[.]
April 17, 2014
Among other demerits, this is the rare foodie movie that doesn't seem to care much about food.
April 16, 2014
A mushy concoction that's not only unfulfilling, it's gag-worthy.
April 13, 2014
There's a sinister, even insidious quality to a film that insists upon using incessant food montages not as a source of passion, but fodder for class-based self-congratulation.
April 12, 2014
Foodies will be disappointed as the shaking camera superficially gazes at the cuisine while emphasizing annoying characters.
August 22, 2013
A polite, if insubstantial, film-watching experience.
