Audience Reviews for What's Cooking?
May 02, 2011Great actors, but not very interesting storyline. A little too stereotypical, a lot too trite and concocted. Entertaining enough to watch to its conclusion, but not a very satisfying movie in the end.Cynthia S Super Reviewer
Jun 18, 2010A cute holiday movie. Wasn't especially memorable but the cast was good and the writing was alright.Sunil J Super Reviewer
Nov 13, 2008Definitely watchable with some great performances (sup Alfre Woodard), but also painfully heavy handed.Joey N Super Reviewer
Jul 07, 2008A nice slice of LA suburban life.Anthony V Super Reviewer
