Catherine Zeta Jones, Aaron Eckhart
Based on the European original Mostly Martha, No Reservations features the sexy Catherine Zeta Jones and Aaron Eckhart turning up the heat in a veritable fondue of romantic drama.
Zeta Jones plays super dedicated, perfectionist in fact, cook Kate whose job at a top New York restaurant leaves her zero time for a relationship, her world changes for ever though when her sister dies and she has to take in her orphaned niece (played by Abigail Breslin), forced to take some time out she is more than put out to discover a new Sous Chef Nick Palmer (played by Aaron Eckhart) who is not only a great cook but brings a whole new dynamic into the kitchen.
As Kate struggles with becoming in effect a mum and starts to fall for Nick she actually wakes up to the fact that there is more to life than the kitchen. Definitely a nicely feel good movie that gives you that warm fuzzy glow that restores your faith in the fact that the world may just not be so bad after all. You know exactly what you are getting with No Reservations but you know sometimes thats exactly what you want.
Zeta-Jones and Eckhart spark off each other very nicely and young Abigail Breslin has bags of cuteness going for her. Warm of heart and delicious to boot No Reservations is well worth pulling up a chair for.
Extras feature an episode of the Food Network show Unwrapped with host Marc Summers visiting the set.
