Will Kate, too, fall for Nick? Only every single person watching the movie knows for sure.

It's the blandness of the characters, the staleness of the settings and Zeta Jones' struggle with reserve that hobbles No Reservations.

The movie is a remake of Mostly Martha (2001), a German film very much liked by many. No Reservations doesn't seem to reinvent it so much as recycle it.

Zeta-Jones and Eckhart manage to turn this film into an okay chick flick that IS probably best left for the chicks.

The salacious close-ups of saucepans and gnocchi and quail guarantee it: After seeing No Reservations you'll be hungry for a really top-flight meal. And, to go with it, a better film.
| Original Score: 2/4

A remake not only of Mostly Martha, but of every romantic comedy featuring an uptight woman who learns to cut loose and enjoy life with a freewheeling new beau.

A culinary misfire whose comic ingredients fail to coalesce.

A cinematic culinary treat for those without a discerning palate.

Catherine Zeta-Jones controls the kitchen, but can't control my attention.

Inconsequential and predictable.

I have no hard feelings toward adult-oriented escapist cinema, but there's a robotic quality to No Reservations that keeps the film from soaring.

No delicacies here. No Reservations is just as bland and predictable as a frozen TV dinner.

This many delicious ingredients should have produced a tastier, more memorable result.

September 12, 2007
A product of the sort of steely, soulless competence that marks so very many films as the work of professionals who view this as a job, not an art form.

Carol Fuchs's silly, mushy script has her character swerve without warning between obtuse rigidity and sweet normality.
Jeffrey M. Anderson

Hicks directs with polite seriousness, using too many montages and too much bland dialogue.

While Zeta-Jones and Eckhart make an appealing couple, their chemistry never really develops due to the script's complete lack of sauce.
Eric Kohn
New York Press

No Reservations ties everything together with a neat little bow, demonstrating timidity about the ingredient it needs most of all: reality.
