Chicago Sun-Times
It placed second for the People's Choice Award at the 2000 Toronto Film Festival--after "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon." That's about right.

Chicago Tribune
The kind of movie some audiences are starved for, a comedy with a human face, warmth and spirit.

Portland Oregonian
Appropriate music, lovely cinematography and stellar performances by both a subtly moving Neill and a likable, barrel-chested super-American Warburton.

Wall Street Journal
Apollo 11's mission was a singular chapter in the story of mankind; The Dish finds a whimsical, winning way of telling it anew.

New York Daily News
For all its folksy jocularity, the movie inspires a sense of global patriotism. In the big picture, every little dish counts.

Dramatically moving and good-naturedly humorous, it transmits a sharp picture of humanity that inspires both awe and laughter.

L.A. Weekly
Surprisingly moving -- prompting lumps in the throat over what was, after all, a historic moment of the most luminous hope.
70
A feel-good comic ensembler that's hard to resist.

The cast is wonderful, the soundtrack features a well-chosen array of bouncy period pop tunes, and Graeme Wood's cinematography makes the most of the stately beauty of the dish itself.

Charlotte Observer
If you like films short, sweet and soothing, this may be exactly your "Dish."
