As warm and funny as it is dramatic and emotionally involving, with fully-fleshed characters brought to life by the strong ensemble acting.

Soul Food serves up family melodrama-cum-comedy that's tasty and satisfying, if not particularly profound or original.

Tillman is tremendously skilled at bridging the vast shifts in tone.
