No Reservations

Another movie I should have watched ages ago, but waited until it was allowed on free-to-air telly. Yep, I'm pretty lazy. No Reservations (2007) is supposed to be a fluffy romantic comedy. Funny...I found it pretty tragic (in a good way).
No Reservations, as the title suggests, is a movie about a restaurant. In that restaurant is a woman, Kate (Catherine Zeta-Jones), who loves her job as being head chef at the swanky restaurant. Her world is turned upside down when her sister dies and she is left with her niece, Zoe (Abigail Breslin). At first, Zoe is a little distant, but she warms up to Kate eventually. While Kate is away, there is a new chef at the restaurant, Nick (Aaron Eckhart). Even though Kate is pretty annoyed by him, they soon fall in love.
I was expecting a fluffy romantic comedy, and somehow this movie didn't deliver on the promise. It had substance, thanks to the tragic start. However, as the movie dragged on it got a little tedious, and yep, I'd seen it all before. Zeta-Jones and Eckhart were pretty cute, but Abigail Bresline just absolutely stole the show, as she does in any movie. No Reservations is pretty basic, and one for a girls night in. Prepare to have some major food envy though.

You mustn't be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling.
