Critic Reviews for Simply Irresistible
Any movie featuring a crab wearing a tuxedo (complete with a top hat!) can't be all that bad.
Scrambles many of what were among the winning elements of You've Got Mail--but audiences are returning this one to sender.
'Simply Irresistible' begins with Sarah Michelle Gellar picking up a case of crabs. Things go downhill from there.
A ridiculous and just plain goofy romantic fantasy that's as flimsy as a slice of bologna.
Audience Reviews for Simply Irresistible
I do not like the concept of this movie. Amanda is failing to make a go of her mom's restaurant after her mom passes away. Then along comes a magic crab who makes Amanda's cooking outstanding, rescues her love life and generally improves her life. We should all be so lucky to have a magic crab appear.
I know it's not a *good* movie, but it's sweet, and I have watched it many times over the years. Sarah Michelle plays Amanda, a young woman trying to hold on to the restaurant her dead mother left her and failing. There is a bit of silliness with a spirit and a crab, and then she meets a man and with the help of some "magic" and good food, they fall in love. Sarah Michelle is charming and there's a good supporting role from Patricia Clarkson. The love interest is a bit bland, but the sou chef friend is hilarious. Just a nice little movie.
