God, I so wanted to love this movie! Eddie Murphy for Chrissake! Looking luminously beautiful. But, the script is overwought, overwritten and, in the end, leaden. Without creating a "spoiler," any actual writer would have known where to makeGod, I so wanted to love this movie! Eddie Murphy for Chrissake! Looking luminously beautiful. But, the script is overwought, overwritten and, in the end, leaden. Without creating a "spoiler," any actual writer would have known where to make the major story-break. Too many secondary characters with too thin back-stories. Ironically, since so much of the narrative revolves around cooking, their seems not to have been a recipe for this screenplay. Watch it anyway just to revel in Eddy. Expand

This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Mr. Church is a simplistic and effortless movie that doesn't do enough to create that special bond between us and its characters. The movie starts with young Charlie who (unreasonably) detests Mr. Church, the cook that has been appointed to take care of the girl and her dying mother. However, it only takes a few nice meals to change Charlie's mind who then start to like Mr. Church in a kind of obsessive way, invading his private life. Everything in the movie happens in such an effortless and a rather quick way, from the mother's death to Mr. Church's at the end of the movie. It makes it hard to care for the characters as the movie doesn't give us enough reasons to develop empathy. The only good thing is Eddie Murphy who is back in great shape. Expand
