While this cheerful film has nothing particularly new to say about the ties that hold family members together even when they're driving each other crazy, it's a pleasure to watch such a talented ensemble at work.

Thanks to a perfectly blended ensemble led by Hector Elizondo, in his best screen role to date, Tortilla Soup is a warm-blooded winner with equal emphasis placed on taste buds and heartstrings.

There's nothing original here, but the film is pleasant enough, and it's a pleasure to see Elizondo on the screen again. Peña, Obradors and Mello are fine as well.

Hector Elizondo lords over his uniquely messed-up offspring with a knowing twinkle in his eye. He's having fun, and so are we.

Despite a few adjustments, Ripoll's film largely remains faithful to the central plotting of Lee's original film, which presented a slightly familiar yet utterly charming tale of food and families.

'Tortilla Soup' gives Hector Elizondo the right recipe for his first starring role in a feature film.

Ang Lee's Eat Drink Man Woman is faithfully adapted into Los Angeles' Mexican-American subculture in this enjoyable ensemble film.

Isn’t the delicacy that Eat Drink Man Woman was… But on the level of comfort food this remake is enjoyable enough.

Tortilla Soup is bittersweet fun, but it could have been zanier had Maria Ripoll not directed it with such a ponderous, heavy hand.

The story gets all hyperactive in the last 20 minutes, but even the predictable stuff can't obliterate the simple pleasure of watching what went before.

Tortilla Soup is a passable film, though it's exceptionally predictible, and far from original.

A tasty mix of old-fashioned entertainment, seasoned with fine acting and familiar faces.

Although there are some rather broad strokes to the comedy (and a couple of characters that verge on caricature), "Tortilla Soup" ultimately serves up a tasty dish.
