When customers told her and/or remarked on how much their server resembled Catherine Zeta-Jones, she would reply to them (in a faux American accent to hide her distinctive British/Welsh accent), "I hear that all the time."

A chick flick with a touch of real life
27 July 2007 | by the-movie-guySee all my reviews

(My Synopsis) Kate (Catherine Zeta-Jones) is the master chef at the trendy 22 Bleecker Street Restaurant in Manhattan. She runs her kitchen at a rapid pace as she coordinates the making and preparing of all the fantastic meals and personally displays the food to perfection on every dish. She intimidates everyone around her, so her boss sends her to therapy. Kate hates to leave the kitchen when a customer wants to compliment her on one of her special dishes, but she is ready to leave the kitchen in a second when a customer insults her cooking. Kate's sister is killed in a car accident and her nine-year old daughter Zoe (Abigail Breslin) moves in with Kate. With all of Kate's problems, the boss hires a new chef to join the staff. Nick (Aaron Eckhart) is a rising star in his own right and could be the head chef of another restaurant, but he wants to work under Kate. Kate begins to feel threatened by Nick, because he has a different style of running the kitchen. Nick loves to listen to opera when he cooks and to make the staff laugh. With all that is going on in Kate's life, falling for a man is the last thing she was looking for. There is some kind of chemistry between Kate and Nick that can only go one way. Yet life will hit her in the head when Kate's boss offers Nick the head chef job.

(My Comment) You know before going in that this is a chick flick. If anything, I wanted to see Catherine Zeta-Jones do her thing. The movie actually touches on a hard subject of what can happen in life when someone you love dies. Kate had her own life and now she is responsible for her niece Zoe. Being responsible for a child will change your life dramatically, and Kate discovers that very soon. What used to be important to Kate is not so important, and she must work very hard to build a relationship with Zoe. Yes, this is a chick flick, but it also touches real life to. I think the real star of the movie was Abigail Breslin. Abigail was able to pull off her part and make you believe that her mother had actually died. Most of the movie is light hearted and fun to watch and is very predictable. (Warner Bros. Pictures, Run time 1:44, Rated PG)(6/10)
