  1. It's a movie, a goofy little movie. Not so bad, but as far as food and sensuality go, ``Like Water for Chocolate'' still has the edge.
  2. Reviewed by: Jane Ganahl
    A gooey-sweet, beautifully photographed romantic fantasy…It's also -- at the risk of sounding like a Grinch -- a mess.
  3. 50
    This culinary fantasy is mildly inspired.
  4. It is a measure of the shortcomings of this genial, well-meaning but ultimately unenchanting film that scene after scene is stolen by the second bananas.
  5. 40
    Though glossy and smoothly directed, this limp concoction has all the sparkle of flat champagne.
