Storyline

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.

Goofs

When Kate and Zoe are walking alongside a yellow school bus on the way to Zoe's first day at school, a mother with her son is crossing the road. As the mother and son pass the front of the bus, the son drops his book. The son tells the mom and they pause in the path of Kate and Zoe briefly before being forced to move on, leaving the book behind in order not to block Kate and Zoe. A crossing officer attempts to pick it up for them before leaving it as the mother and son exit the scene. See more »

Go see the original
24 September 2007 | by See all my reviews

I am a longtime fan of the original of this movie (Bella Martha/Mostly Martha), and everything that makes that movie great and enjoyable to watch is missing from this one. I miss the slow pace, the build-up of characters and their style in small gestures, the dominance of lights and moods and moves over dialog. I don't think that the story itself is enough. Martha/Kate is more secluded, and Mario/Nick is not a clown. In most of the cases the things that makes one scene great in the original, its is not working in its copy here. The small alterations take away the tension. My opinion is that you should go and see the original. It'll worth the inconvenience of subtitles.
