Top Critic Reviews

Fresh: It's a meal you may feel you've eaten before, but you nonetheless walk away stuffed and happy.

- A.O. Scott, New York Times, Saturday, January 1, 2000

Fresh: Patient viewers will find that by the time the sparks start to fly and the tears to flow, the wait will have been worth it, to say nothing of the laughs.

- Bob Graham, San Francisco Chronicle, Saturday, January 1, 2000

Rotten: The film's gluttonous overkill of food is matched only by its overacting.

- Bruce Westbrook, Houston Chronicle, Saturday, January 1, 2000
