Master chef Kate Armstrong is a perfectionist who leads a regimented life, while running the kitchen of an exclusive restaurant. She revels in the sense of power and control her career affords. When Kate's sister is killed in an automobile accident, her 9-year old niece Zoe comes to live with Kate. Kate's life is turned completely upside down and she is suddenly forced to split her focus between work and family. Nick Palmer is the newly hired, fun-loving, opera-singing sous chef, whom Kate perceives as a serious rival. She then begins an impassioned struggle to rein in Nick's exuberance and maintain control over her kitchen staff. Even as they clash, Kate is drawn toward Nick, eventually coming to the realization that Nick offers something that she needs both in her restaurant kitchen and her new life with Zoe.

It was sometimes frustrating to watch Zeta-Jones' character who showed a lack of emotion in what I find to be the most emotional scenes in the movie. On the other hand, Breslin did a phenomenal job as a grieving young girl who's forced to immediately adapt to a whole new life with her aunt. Overall, I enjoyed this movie, and I was pleased that it didn't only focus on romantic relationships, but on other types of connections and relationships as well.

pretty good. love the restaurant/chef atmosphere. classy. zeta-jones character is a bit frustrating, though. i don't think she quite deserved the happiness at the end because she was not really a nice person, BUT oh well. at least the little girl and love interest seemed happy, so i guess that counts for something.

It's definitely a movie, and fairly predictable, but very cute! LOL
Great acting.
A real "Feel Good" film.

This movie was on last Saturday night and as I watched it I said, "this feel familiar". I had watched the German version of this film (which is the original) called Most Martha which this movie is the American version.

Very predictable and very annoying. CZJ has been starring in crap lately.

Decent. Good story line and well acted. The main character, Kate (Catherine Zeta-Jones) was obsessive about the food she cooked which made you really begin to dislike her. Which played well against, the free spirited chef bought on board at the restaurant. I would watch it again in a pinch.
