Chicago Tribune
It's tantalizing, delectable and randy, a movie of melting eroticism and toothsome humor.
80
Rolling Stone
A sinfully scrumptious bonbon.
75
Chicago Sun-Times
The movie is charming and whimsical, and Binoche reigns as a serene and wise goddess.
75
Boston Globe
May not be deep, but it certainly is lip-smacking.
75
New York Daily News
A charming trifle, beautifully filmed in a Currier & Ives setting, with buttery-smooth performances from Binoche and Depp, and enough good tidings in its nougat center to get you through the holidays.
75
New York Post
A bittersweet confection that few holiday filmgoers will be able to resist, thanks to melt-in-your-mouth performances by Juliette Binoche, Alfred Molina and Judi Dench.
67
Entertainment Weekly
It's as agreeably sweet as advertised, with a particularly yummy performance by Juliette Binoche.
63
Philadelphia Inquirer
Too bad Chocolat isn't as seductive as its leading lady.
63
Baltimore Sun
Has an unerring capacity for going soft whenever a hard edge is called for.
50
San Francisco Chronicle
A lighthearted fable with jarring scenes of violence and halfhearted stabs at mystical realism, its saving grace is its gooey center, the luminous Binoche.
50
USA Today
Never enough goodies to keep the two-hour running time from seeming like three.
