      Critics Consensus

      Cake finds Jennifer Aniston making the most of an overdue opportunity to test her dramatic chops, but it lacks sufficient depth or warmth to recommend for all but her most ardent fans. Read critic reviews

        Wonderful and sympathetic acting from Jennifer Anniston, but despite potential, this movie fizzles half way through and is a bit of a bore.

        Jennifer Aniston is great here as always, but this film isn't particularly good. It has its moments though.

        A victim of chronic back pain tries to connect with the widower of a suicide. All the lauds about Jennifer Aniston's performance are well-deserved. She plays both the condition - her character's chronic pain - and the objective of the scene with almost expert technique. She's constantly in character, though the character mutes Aniston's personal comic charm. The film, however, is a slogging monotony, a structureless, flimsy, rough-shod thing with characters suddenly popping with no narrative motivation and a story that sags and lags like an atrophied nursing home resident. Overall, I could only wish that the Aniston's talents had been put to better use.

        Starting out, I think it prudent to say I think Jennifer Aniston is the epitome of strength, driven acting, and pure beauty. No one would argue that Aniston gives a career turning performance in this film, about a woman burdened with grief, and addicted to painkillers after a terrible accident. The general narrative of the cloistered, rich lady addicted to pills is subverted through a heartbreaking story of companionship in mourning. Read more at http://www.bluefairyblog.com/reviews/cake
