Critic Reviews for The Cake Eaters
In her first feature film, Masterson creates a slice of life that is very believable (especially if you've ever seen The Jerry Springer Show), and often endearing.
There are only so many story threads an ensemble cast can hold.
Stand out performances, interesting character dynamic but overall, kind of a flat film that really doesn't have you too emotionally invested.
I think there is a future in directing for Mary Stewart Masterson.
These are people whose company you enjoy, in good times and bad. Taking place over a short period of time, it's a small slice of life, yes. But as the title implies, it's a tasty one as well.
Audience Reviews for The Cake Eaters
I think Kristen Stewart played her role great.. never seen her do this kind of acting before and I thought she did a great job.
The Cake Eaters: Yet another flick that showcases that Stewart is barely half as blessed in acting (Yeah, she sucks here too. Just because she gets to play an unusual role doesn't mean she does great.) as she's in looks. And yet another flick that showcases that hope comes by letting go, and sometimes the first thing you gotta let go is hope itself. Hell's bells, whatever that means. Coming back to the movie, it's a mediocre family drama which offers nothing of the sort that you need to go out of your way to watch it. In short, it's an avoidable emotional fare.
Dull drama. Kristen Stewart has almost no screen presence and since hers is the main story there is not much to hold the viewer's interest. The only actors really registering at all are old pros Dern and Ashley.
