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.Written by

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.

I wish there was a cookbook for life, you know? Recipes telling us exactly what to do. I know, I know, you're gonna say "How else will you learn, Kate."
mm. No, actually I wasn't going to say that. You want to guess again?
No, no, go ahead.
Well what I was going to say was, you know better than anyone, it's the recipes that you create yourself that are the best.

NO RESERVATIONS is an entertaining and nice summer 2007 film which gives an audience a very interesting and intelligent female lead in Cathterine Zeta-Jones as a Chef in the high profile "foodie biz" of chic New York and has the talented Aaron Eckhardt as her protagonist and romantic counterpart. Abigail Breslin in her "little grab the heart" role, shots of the village, wonderful appetizing displays of food and the glam gal, Patricia Clarkson, keeping 22 Beeker running and filled with customers. Have I mentioned that this film makes you want to pay attention the next time in your city a very pretentious and high profile restaurant opens for business? And, reservations are needed.
