Critic Reviews for Simply Irresistible
Simply Irresistible is old-fashioned and obvious, yes, like a featherweight comedy from the 1950s. But that's the charm. I love movies that cut loose from the moorings of the possible and dance among their fancies.
Enjoy all the flights of fancy and let yourself lap up all the cuteness possible.
Any movie featuring a crab wearing a tuxedo (complete with a top hat!) can't be all that bad.
Scrambles many of what were among the winning elements of You've Got Mail--but audiences are returning this one to sender.
Audience Reviews for Simply Irresistible
I do not like the concept of this movie. Amanda is failing to make a go of her mom's restaurant after her mom passes away. Then along comes a magic crab who makes Amanda's cooking outstanding, rescues her love life and generally improves her life. We should all be so lucky to have a magic crab appear.
I know it's not a *good* movie, but it's sweet, and I have watched it many times over the years. Sarah Michelle plays Amanda, a young woman trying to hold on to the restaurant her dead mother left her and failing. There is a bit of silliness with a spirit and a crab, and then she meets a man and with the help of some "magic" and good food, they fall in love. Sarah Michelle is charming and there's a good supporting role from Patricia Clarkson. The love interest is a bit bland, but the sou chef friend is hilarious. Just a nice little movie.
