Critic Reviews

  1. While this cheerful film has nothing particularly new to say about the ties that hold family members together even when they're driving each other crazy, it's a pleasure to watch such a talented ensemble at work.
  2. Overwhelmingly predictable despite its cute surprise ending, Tortilla Soup is a filling but unoriginal dish.

    The script, which infantilizes one of the older siblings as much as the father does, undermines its own admonitions against parents and adult children meddling in one another's lives.

    The whole cast is good. It's too bad all that good work isn't in service to a better, or certainly more original, script.
  5. The real star of the film is the food, which is sliced, diced, shredded, rolled, sautéed and fricasseed to mouthwatering perfection.
  6. 40
    As predictable as a fast-food restaurant. The actors' exuberance goes a long way, but not far enough.
  7. Reviewed by: Ed Park
    Tortilla Soup feels instantly dated, distinguishable from EDMW only by some attractive close-ups of avocado.

    Opting for this refried mash over Lee's rentable beauty is like choosing canned beans over an Asian feast.
