    Fact: SMG is a rather marvellous young actress. Simply Irresistible is not a good advert for her. And that's a bad title to give it as well. Not a terrible movie, mind; but you'll miss nothing if you make a cup of tea. For about 94 minutes. Watchable enough on a rainy day with nothing but BBC2's Party Political Brodcast Night on TV.

  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. A tuneless variation on the working girl-captivates-Mr. Big formula that has propelled fairy tales as old as Cinderella.

    The premise was a yummy one in the Mexican hit "Like Water for Chocolate," but it's best to pack Tums in case of heartburn this time around. [5 February 1999, Life, p.11E]
