A lot of people seem to be saying, "Don't watch this awful remake! Go watch Mostly Martha, the original!" I say, by all means, watch Mostly Martha, but don't bypass this version.

It's true that if I had watched this without having seen the original version, Mostly Martha, I would probably have liked it even better. This American version is really too close to the original, right down to the appearance of several characters (Leah, the sous-chef, for instance). For this reason, if you try to compare the two, it comes off as a half-hearted reproduction, Mostly Martha's reheated leftovers.

In many ways, it does lack some of the heart and depth of Mostly Martha. The characters are not as deep and intense, so their relationships aren't as meaningful to the audience. Kate is not quite as tightly wound as Martha, not quite as isolated--so her sudden inheritance of a child and the infringement of a stranger in her kitchen are less difficult and less meaningful. Zoe is much happier and lively than Lina ever is, and is not as scarred by her mother's death, so her struggle to accept Kate is again less meaningful. Nick, I felt, was outstanding--he was different from Mario, but equally effective. I actually preferred Nick, in fact, as I found Mario bordered on annoying at times, while Nick was more appealing all the way through (and Aaron Eckhart is certainly better looking!).

So why did I give it four stars? Well, I'm a sucker for a good romance. I feel that if I hadn't seen Mostly Martha, I would have given it four stars as a good romantic comedy. That is what is, and that is, I think, all it tries to be.

There's a light, good-hearted nature to "No Reservations" that's quite pleasing, if a little predictable. This is just as much a story of life as it is a story of romance, and we all know the formulas such films follow: a person's world is rearranged when someone new enters his or her life, and the laughter, tears, and conflict will be plentiful. I expected nothing less from "No Reservations," which is probably why I was able to enjoy it. This is a charming, funny, touching film that casts away any qualms about being formulaic, which is a good thing for anyone in need of romantic escapism. I don't dare question how realistic the events of the film are; this is not a film that bothers with realism, but rather with the idealism that life is supposed to work in a specific way. At times, it's a welcome diversion.

The plot concerns Kate (Catherine Zeta-Jones), the executive chef of an upscale New York restaurant. We immediately get the sense that hers is a very organized, controlled world; while not explicitly critical or demeaning, she is fiercely protective of what she's worked so hard for, namely her position at the restaurant. Here's a person that's strong on the outside but deeply insecure on the inside, exemplified by her inability to receive criticism (never complain about the food she prepares; you'll definitely regret it). For these reasons, she's ordered into therapy. She pretty much dominates her own sessions with incessant discussions on food preparation--appetizing, yes, but not exactly enlightening. Her therapist (Bob Balaban) is initially unable to ask any questions or give any advice. Clearly, she's afraid to let anyone examine her personal life.

Her world is turned upside down when her sister dies in a car accident, leaving behind a daughter, Zoe (Abigail Breslin).

On tonight's menu, we are serving a romantic comedy that will satisfy the most discriminatory palate. Devoid of nudity and foul language, "No Reservations" is a touching, heart warming comedy that is suitable for all ages. It has a very upbeat, positive finale that can only be found in a modern fairytale.

Catherine Zeta-Jones is wonderful as Kate who is one of the best chefs in New York; unfortunately, she seeks solace and comfort in the kitchen of an upscale restaurant. Her daily routine is turned upside down when tragedy forces her to becomes a parent to her niece, and a handsome, dashing chef (Aaron Eckhart) is hired to assist her in the kitchen. During the course of the movie, Kate metamorphoses from a self-isolated, suspicious person into someone who can trust, love and share her world.

Great performances are given by everyone, especially Abigail Breslin who is very convincing as Kate's orphaned niece, Zoe; Zoe has a hard time adjusting to the loss of her mother and your heart will break for her.

Catherine Zeta-Jones and Aaron Eckhard look great together. Their kissing is very passionate. They are able to heat up the kitchen without turning on the stove.

"No Reservations" comes highly recommended; it will make a great addition to anyone's collection of romantic comedies. Watch it tonight; reservations aren't required.

The biggest issue I have always had with American remakes of foreign films is that our versions come out so commercial-looking. The original of this movie "Mostly Martha" outshines No Reservations largely due to the fact that Catherine Zeta-Jones doesn't pull off the vulnerability needed for the role. Her sister has died and she winds up responsible for her young niece but Jones never comes near the pain the loss of a sibling would truly cause - especially given the fact that she had practically raised her sister after their own mother died. This fact could very easily have explained the main character's often neurotic behavior, but it's never touched upon. As a result, the growth of this character falls flat. The actress playing the young niece did a far better job at sharing the emotion of her loss, her pain. Eckhart was really excellent as the Sioux-chef, quite possibly because he played a lot of scenes with the girl. He comes off just as his character should - intelligent, caring and damned good at his job. I suppose if you don't see the original and aren't familiar with foreign film making, or with Hollywood's tendency to pull only what they think will sell from the story line - you might disagree with my rating. Will I watch it again? Yes. Why? The cooking scenes were stupendous. I actually learned a few kitchen pointers. LOL.
