Very delightful sexy and romantic to watch!
24 December 2011 | by david-1481See all my reviews

I really loved this movie. Here's a lady who gets told by two lovers one being her husband and the other her husbands publisher who simply don't want a woman to be more successful than they are. But like life being acted out in a movie, this is still a sad truth in our society too. Kate only wanted love to be on equal terms.

Strangely quite a lot of dialogue is held over the food, super nice restaurants and home cooked food, and I felt like I was eating with everyone while the conversations were going on.

Whats more fun is how Kate looks in some very sexy outfits and I loved the amazing comeback lines all the actors had in this film. Well worth watching and well worth seeing on DVD - I only wish I had seen it on the big screen.
