Shut off the analytic sector of your brain, and the rest of you can, have a thoroughly pleasant night out at the movie theater.

"Woman On Top" is a chick flick with so much colorfully spicy Brazilian food being passed around as a shared aphrodisiac, that audience couples will be running out the cinema for food and bed.

Woman on Top es una divertida fbula acerca del poder del Amor. Simplona...pero romntica.

Does nothing for gender or culture politics, but it's peppy and colorful, so you might enjoy parts even if you really shouldn't.

Torres' playful and whimsical film is the ideal tonic for the winter blues, bursting with sunshine, fantasy, and mouth-wateringly fiery food.

The combination of food, sex, giddy Latin American mysticism and fast-rising Spanish star Penelope Cruz is a formidable one, and the movie is darn hard to resist.

If it were a song, it would be a happy pop number -- The Girl From Ipanema -- with a tune you can't ignore.

You know it's working when it makes everything in it look good enough to eat, including the San Francisco transit system.

It's all coy and fey -- and painless to digest.

Nothing lies under the surface of Woman on Top. But since so much of the surface is the golden form of Penelope Cruz, I would be a sorry whiner to complain.

A charming confection spun from pure whimsy, and bouncy with bright songs and sets.

Attains a rarified air of fantasy that may not be wholly uncalculated, but with Cruz at its center is certainly watchable.
January 1, 2000
A romantic comedy that bubbles and sizzles with its mixture of food, love, and Brazilian music.
January 1, 2000
Good-hearted and mature in a way that many mainstream films are not.
