      Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times The movie makes its point early and often: That its characters are hung up on food, and eat for unhealthy and obsessive reasons. It's true. We know it's true. We wait in vain for additional insights. Rated: 2/4 Jan 1, 2000 Full Review Rene Jordan El Nuevo Herald (Miami) It's unsettling, subversively funny, and without a doubt Jaglom's best. [Full review in Spanish] Jan 4, 2023 Full Review Richard Propes A vibrant, entertaining and heartfelt experience. Rated: 3.5/4.0 Sep 7, 2020 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews Goes on for too long and becomes overcooked, though parts of it are tasty in an idiosyncratic way. Rated: C+ Aug 16, 2013 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Though largely shallow, Jaglom's high-concept serio-comedy is timely and has a few observant moments about women's food and beauty anxieties Rated: C+ Jun 21, 2006 Full Review Philip Martin Arkansas Democrat-Gazette Rated: 3/5 Apr 28, 2005 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member the 40 and 50 y/o actresses should switch roles: how can the 40 look like 60 and be celebrating her 40th birthday? poor casting. after this movie, everyone's gonna think we women all have issues with food and are always discontent. I disagree and am of the opinion that discontentment is a spiritual issue and not something that food or any emotional crutch can hope to address. finally, it gets too boring 2/3 into the movie to hear all the whining going on in that mad house!! Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member an all-too female-drama about eating disorders and other associated image-issues. too much.
