Movie Info

"BETTER THAN CHOCOLATE" is a sexy romp of love and lust with surprising results. Maggie meets the woman of her dreams Kim just hours before her mother, Lilia, and brother, Paul,move in with her. When the four end up sharing a loft, Maggie believes she must keep her affair a secret but it is Maggie's clandestine romance that inadvertently introduces her family to a host of new experiences, all of which are potentially... better than chocolate.

I feel damaged, like this movie has taken a part of my soul. And not only does this movie refuse to apologize for it, I think it's going to use my soul's energy in order to make it even more ridiculous for the next person who watches it.

Better Than Chocolate depicts the universal humor in the acts of seduction and coupling.

... for those looking for more, they'll have to tell the filmmaking chefs to put something other than Chocolate on the menu.

October 3, 2017 | Full Review…

Anne Wheeler's sexy, funny, poignant film, from a bright script by Peggy Thompson, is a real charmer, with considerable brains.

December 11, 2006 | Full Review…

Plays like a 'very special episode' of a sitcom. That is, one with explicit nudity and sex.

October 28, 2006 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Better Than Chocolate is warm and loving, if not partcularly wise or nuanced.

Audience Reviews for Better than Chocolate

Interesting, but nothing more than that. I loved the crazy idea with the books in ice.

There were many little flaws in this film, and some story directions I would have done differently, but it was an enjoyable piece and one of the better Canadian-born films. Love Karyn,
