No Reservations

No Reservations ★★★★

Some of the best movies are the ones that let you simply spend time with the characters and enjoy the couple hours you have together simmering in the stew of their company. No Reservations excels at making it’s characters as human and likable as possible, even as it errs a tad on the side of montages over conversation.

Catherine Zeta-Jones is frenetic perfection, Aaron Eckhart is supremely cool and easy-going, and Abigail Breslin, well she’s just cute as a button, isn’t she? I really don’t understand the Letterboxd curve on this one. The food is phenomenal and the characters are fun. What’s not to like?
