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 »

A Gourmet Dish With A Strange Undertaste
3 August 2007 | by dowdoseanSee all my reviews

I think that Catherine Zeta Jones and Aaron Eckhart could do a new version of "Prizzi's Honor" they both look like professional killers. In a nice way, of course. It wouldn't have surprised me if one of the two had produced a kitchen knife and stabbed the other multiple times. Okay, enough of that. The movie is, how shall I put it? Nice. Catherine Zeta Jones manages a sort of warmth that I had never noticed before in her and Aaron, well, he just goes for it, reveling in this film persona that he's been developing for years. The tender macho type. The food looks great but not as great as in "Big Night" remember that one? Some character touches are really spot on. The city and the dishes are photographed beautifully, the human beings a little less. I almost walked out during a musical montage but I'm a glad I didn't. All in all. Fun. Not Preston Sturges but fun.
