One-line Reviews (28)

The cast, despite a high level of talent, fails to perk up dialogue that teeters on the edge of cheesy.

Ang Lee's Latin American version of "Eat Drink, Man, Woman" is just as enjoyable as the former film.

The movie was quite unpredictable.

The young girl quells Martin's empty nest syndrome and also plays a roll in the `surprise' ending.

The original movie was, I think, better, but this is still quite entertaining.

I have only walked out on a movie twice in my life, and this was one of them.

The most enjoyable part of all is the wonderful food that is prominently displayed throughout the movie.

The movie itself finds comic moments throughout based on the confusion generated when men and women try to interact with each other and the inability of one side to understand how the other works.

" Just too trite.

This movie is quite enjoyable.

This is truly an enjoyable and collectable movie.

Throughout his career, Mr. Elizondo has combined his dignified appearance with a precise comic timing that has led to many scene-stealing supporting roles as a slow-burning straight man.

Although the plotline was not unique, it was an endearing, entertaining, well-done film.

Interesting and entertaining family drama with the chef father as the central character.

Thoroughly enjoyable film - go rent it!!.

The cast is sound, the performances believable and enjoyable, and the plot gentle and real-life.

' There's a twist, which the written documents sponsored by the film all boast as unpredictable, and this can be attributed to its lack of support throughout the film.

The food in Tortilla Soup is dull by comparison, and the photography closer to that of a TV special.

"Tortilla Soup" is certainly worth watching, even if you have already seen "Eat Drink Man Woman," but I would have enjoyed it much more if I hadn't seen the original version.

i saw this film on star-movie channel accidentally in a boring night,and i have to say that i was totally confused about the meaningless mechanical remaking of ang lee's previous movie,you will never figure out how bloody spoiled the remaking was if you never saw the original one before and in the mean time you are not a Chinese.

Gives a good number of enjoyable moments and sweet natured performances to pass the time nicely, althought it often also skims a little too much on the comedy/drama line.

The story is able to take a few turns that were unexpected and help make this movie more fascinating than it might have been otherwise.

The film quality makes you feel part of the action rather than watching a lot of high-priced movie stars in a trite romantic comedy.

Enjoyable Film for All .

I realize it's a remake aimed at a more mainstream audience, but it seems like a bland dish compared to the far more satisfying eat drink man woman.

Filled with bad acting, trite dialog, two-dimensional characters, and sometimes-amateurish cinematography and film editing.

One of the most enjoyable movies in a long time.

It's often said that comedy is much more difficult to translate than drama, but a movie as enjoyable as "Tortilla Soup" doesn't need to justify it's existence as a remake.
