The most predictable movie I've ever seen.
23 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you've never seen a romantic comedy before, then this will delight you to no end, as it has all the necessary components: great acting and dialog, witty banter, chemistry between all members of the cast, and a nicely weighed smattering of heartfelt (and even sad) moments.

The problem is, if you've seen more than a couple of others in the same genre, you will likely - as was I - be bored to tears watching No Reservations. It was worth it for the couple of laughs and great performances, but I doubt I'll watch it again.

Fans of either of the leads will doubtless enjoy it at least a bit, as they complement each other so perfectly; and who knew Lenny Kravitz's daughter was 20 years old already?! (She's in it very briefly.) Overall, I gave this a 5/10 due to the redundancy, but if it's not your usual fare, it will probably seem more like a 7 or 8 to you.
