  1. Only a quite over-the-top character played by Raquel Welch strikes any false note. Otherwise, Tortilla Soup is a real chef's special.
  2. As tasty and nourishing as one of Martin's finest meals.
  3. 75
    English-language remakes of foreign films are usually suspect, but Tortilla Soup is the exception that proves the rule - a flavorful comedy about a food-centric Latino family in Los Angeles.
  4. In spirit and nuance, this is an amazingly faithful remake.
  5. If you care more about the quality of the movie than the food, language or location, there's no choice: Order Chinese.
  6. Overwhelmingly predictable despite its cute surprise ending, Tortilla Soup is a filling but unoriginal dish.
  7. 20
    It is, however, Tortilla Soup's cultural transposition that feels most phony. Where Lee brings depth and subtle observation to his middle-class ensemble piece, Ripoll has simply added a thin Latino glaze.
