Chalk it up as an alternative to watching a kitchen full of singing rats.

Not bad, not amazing. Just a classy romantic comedy that, like a good meal, is enjoyable enough to partake of, but the taste of which will fade soon thereafter.

There's nothing in this story that you haven't seen before, and you'll know everything that's going to happen long before it does, yet it's all done with such charm and style that you won't care.

Bland-but-sweet dramedy more for adult palates.

Zeta-Jones, Eckhart and Breslin play second fiddle to Ratatouille in what amounts to romantic drama fast food.

No Reservations is a light snack not a three-course meal. It's too light and fluffy to satisfy.

This take it or leave it romantic comedy probably wouldn't get many Michelin stars, but it's not the turkey twizzler you might expect.

Frothy but harmless bit of predictable fluff. Food looks good anyway.

... despite a lack of heat outside the kitchen, Catherine Zeta-Jones and Aaron Eckhart are engaging enough as performers to keep us rooting for them ...

More reminiscent of common ketchup than Kate's magnificent saffron sauce, No Reservations is likeable, peopled by appealing characters, and entirely unremarkable.

Remaking a movie doesn't always work, but in this case it's like really good leftovers... add a fresh spice or two and it's almost as good the second time around.

The film probably won't win Oscars but it's an entertaining romantic story with top-notch actors and a bit of fun and creative maneuvering in the kitchen.

Whereas Ratatouille is the filmic equivalent of an entree, think of this pleasant time-filler as a particularly palatable side dish.

It's a tragedy, a romantic comedy and a drama, with its charismatic cast navigating the manufactured highs and lows with enough skill to deepen what otherwise might have been a movie sorely lacking in depth.

If you want a romantic comedy that's mostly charming and doesn't insult your intelligence or morals, I suggest this light, heartwarming summer fare--with just a few reservations.

Honestly, the best thing you can do is go rent Mostly Martha, the 2002 German film this Hollywood remake is based very, very closely on. But if you really can't stand to read subtitles, then this is your next best bet.
