CharlesSpot Ratings – Eat Drink Man Woman

Overall a great movie.  It is one of the most memorable Chinese movies I have seen.  The cover brags that the movie has the same producer as Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, but the reality is that this movie has none of the typical Chinese stuff you see in the mainstream American media.  There is no Jet Li.  There is no Zhang Zi Yi.  Any yes Sharjeel, Jackie Chan isn’t jumping around and doing that weird neck dance that Chris Tucker taught him.  I guess that is what makes it so memorable.  If you want another rating, here is what Rotten Tomatoes has to say.

PROS:  Overall, I found the plot to be very entertaining.  I was even feeling a little emotional at the end.

CONS:  Don’t watch the movie if you are hungry.  The father in the movie is a chef so he makes some really good looking food…. which might actually make this a “pro”
