About a guy whose life didn't quite turn out how he wanted it to and wishes he could go back to high school and change it. He wakes up one day and is seventeen again and gets the chance to rewrite his life.
A master chef, Kate, lives her life like she runs the kitchen at upscale 22 Bleecker Restaurant in Manhattan--with a no-nonsense intensity that both captivates and intimidates everyone around her. With breathtaking precision, she powers through each hectic shift, coordinating hundreds of meals, preparing delicate sauces, seasoning and simmering each dish to absolute perfection. Written by
When he's in the kitchen, Aaron Eckhart's character wears orange clogs, the trademark of Chef Mario Batalli of Iron Chef and The Chew fame. See more »
In the final scene, Kate and Nick are cooking in the kitchen. Zoe is serving the food - and her hair is down. Food preparation guidelines for restaurants indicate that food preparers (including servers) with long hair must either have their hair fixed up above their collar (as Kate does), or pulled back in a ponytail.

I wish there was a cookbook for life, you know? Recipes telling us exactly what to do. I know, I know, you're gonna say "How else will you learn, Kate."
mm. No, actually I wasn't going to say that. You want to guess again?
No, no, go ahead.
Well what I was going to say was, you know better than anyone, it's the recipes that you create yourself that are the best.

Well, i must admit, when i saw the trailer for this movie, i was looking forward to it. I am generally a fan of light hearted romantic comedies and from the trailer, thats the impression i got of this movie. However, i spent most of the movie waiting for the comedy to begin. Although there were a couple of amusing scenes, in general the outlook of the movie was quite depressing.
I also found it difficult to fall in love with any of the characters as they all seemed a little underdeveloped, the time which the director could have used exploring the characters taken up by a needless overuse of Opera, making the movie feel dragged out and slow.
All in all, although there are some touching scenes, the trailer is quite deceptive and i would only suggest you go watch this if there is really nothing else that tickles your fancy.
Not fantastic, and as i have said before; Bland.
