    Wow. How could anyone give this a good review? Gary Goldstein, etc. should get their heads checked. The relationships between the characters are completely underdeveloped and contradictory, I had no empathy for anyone in the movie. How could characters based on real people be so one-dimensional and phony? Nigel is an unlikable brat, the father is a complete cartoon character, and theWow.

    Toast would be a descent movie if it wasn't for the fact that the main protagonist is an elitist, mean spirited swine who loves nothing more than to taunt and provoke his 'evil' stepmother. Speaking of 'evil' stepmothers, this particular one commits the horrific sin of being a competitive cook... Wow.

    Toast is lovely to look at, evoking both the gray-green milieu of Midlands life and the sensuality of good food, but it's like a whipped topping with no base.

    I could pile on the cooking metaphors until you cried "uncle," but the fact remains that there's a very good movie in here that its makers have failed to bring off.

    By turns sweet and tart, airy and rich and, above all, a thoroughly irresistible confection.
