For the most part, the movie feels like an emotional vacuum, mirroring the drab vanilla and mint green interiors of the Slaters' home.

It's the cinematic equivalent of wax fruit: Look, but don't bite.

Like going to a restaurant where they fill you up with tasty appetizers and delicious bread but then kick you out before the main course is served.

The film is agreeable in everything but it's treatment of Helena Bonham Carter's monstrous embodiment of lower-class pettiness, Joan Potter.

What an annoying little twerp Nigel Slater is, in this odd, off-putting, light-dramatic version of food author Slater's young life.

Enjoyment of this amiable nostalgia trip mostly hinges on one question: Do you care when the Observer scribe made his first pie?

[VIDEO] Lacking in purpose and logic "Toast" is an upside-down biopic from start to finish.

September 20, 2011
Slater's book was evidently an ax-grinder, and the resulting film, directed with tone-deaf comic rhythm by S.J. Clarkson, shows pity and bemusement for the people raising Nigel but rarely human interest in them.

Be warned: Some of the regional British accents would benefit from subtitles.

Director S.J. Clarkson seems oblivious to the dissonance; perhaps he's deafened by the music.

Like its namesake, "Toast" is crusty comfort food with little nutritional substance.

Aren't foodies dull?

A visual feast that nonetheless seems emotionally parched...despite the gorgeous toppings ladled onto it, 'Toast' remains too dry and brittle a meal to be fully satisfying.

Toast never succumbs to cloying sentimentality.

"Charming, but oddly under-motivated...Netflixable."

An all-out war that was tragic but darkly comic because the battlefield was the kitchen.

Fans of gay coming of age stories, British cinema and/or Helena Bonham Carter shouldn't miss it..."Toast" serves as a wistful reminder of the battles we all fought to become who we are today.

The story is as familiar as white bread in "Toast," but the dramedy's point of view is a fascinating puzzle.
