Toast Reviews

October 21, 2011
Like its namesake, "Toast" is crusty comfort food with little nutritional substance.

"Toast" has three things deserving of adoration: spectacular lemon-meringue pies, the songs of Dusty Springfield and Helena Bonham Carter.

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

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

"Toast," is by turns sweet and tart, airy and rich and, above all, a thoroughly irresistible confection.

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.

Sentimental, obvious, but well-nigh irresistible, this jubilant comedy equates England's bland cuisine with its sexual inhibition and suggests we could all use something a little more tasty (at dinnertime, that is).

All the actors do well, but the film's strongest assets are the period details--including the highs (coq au vin) and lows (gelled ham) of Sixties cuisine.

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

It might be described as a lighthearted theme and variation on the adage that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach.

I found it poignant, amusing and endearing. No need for marmalade. Just butter, and enjoy.

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

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.
June 10, 2011
Based on the assumedly truish story of British food celebrity Nigel Slater, and blessed with a soundtrack of Dusty Springfield songs, Toast nevertheless doesn't go down quite as smoothly as it should.

Like the lemon meringue pies and shrimp cocktails it features throughout, Brit comedy-drama Toast is tasty, hearty and rather conventional.
