    Filmmakers Rossi and Novak have done a wonderful job of making all of this entertaining, not just for those interested in the business, but to us ordinary joes as well.

    The ending is enormously satisfying and moving.

    The directors Andrew Rossi and Kate Novack may not be great filmmakers -- it's hard to tell, based on this bare-bones picture -- but they know a great story, and more important, how to tell it.

    The oddest thing about this sweet but not entirely satisfying documentary is how little food is involved.

    Entertaining documentary.

    Though the filmmakers had a great time following the Manhattan restaurateurs around, they abandoned the untidy Brooklyn story before the inevitable downward spiral that might have been our payoff as filmgoers.
