Something's cooking this summer!
Did you notice Hollywood new found interested for food? Now that we've enjoyed some friendly rats in 'Ratatouille' they serving us a delectable Catherine Zeta-Jones in 'No Reservation'. What should we expect next?...Paula Deen cooking a Cherry pie for Indiana Jones?
If you're a Chef and taking a lady on a romantic date this movie might be worth the 10 bucks. Yes, believe it or not: Chefs are romantic!...when they are not throwing pots and pans around. After seeing this, your date is likely to melt like cheddar on a grilled cheese sandwich, and YOU'll be the lucky sliced bread.
The story seem extremely predictable and follows the "he loves me/he loves me not" format, or in this case "i hate him/oh he's okay/can't live without him" format. So don't expect a transcendental experience from it. The best part would have been to be waited by Catherine Zeta-Jones while she was working at Fiamma Osteria in New York preparing for her role...you don't know how much i would have loved to be her sliced bread.
Foodies and amateur chefs might find the food scenes interesting. Recipes and pictures of the dishes shown in the movie can be downloaded at http://noreservationsmovie.warnerbros.com/. You also might want to check out the movie this is based on "Mostly Martha".
If this is not your cup of tea, and prefer to exhibit your soft side in a different manner here's a good compromise:
- Buy a pint of Haagen Dazs Lehua honey & sweet cream.
- Invite your honey to your home.
- Watch some episodes of Hell's Kitchen on DVD.
- Don't forget to share the ice cream with your date.
For a relaxing moment with someone special, nothing can beat a good footage of Gordon Ramsay abusing everyone around him.
