To control her motion sickness, she must do the driving and be on top during sex, which drives her macho husband, Toninho, to infidelities. Heart-broken, she leaves for San Francisco, moving in with her childhood friend, Monica, a cross-dresser. To mend her heart, she makes an offering to Yemanja, the goddess of the sea. The goddess responds: Isabella no longer loves and the fish in Bahia no longer bite. Stricken, Toninho heads north to get her back; he finds her hosting a popular TV show, Passion Food, courted by its producer. Can he learn humility? Can she find happiness without him?

When she decides to break free from her rocky marriage and the stifling kitchen of her husband’s restaurant in Brazil, she spirits off to San Francisco in pursuit of her dreams of a real culinary career.

Fun and frothy way to spend two hours
I’ve read some of the other comments on this film, and I’d agree with many of the criticisms. Yes, Hollywood. Yes, Foreign Film Lite. Yes, predictable plot. Yes, stereotypes here, there, everywhere. And it is not deep. This is a bit of a guilty pleasure, in my opinion. It’s charming, with a fun, atmospheric soundtrack and some enjoyable performances. By the end of the movie I wanted to be dancing on a beach somewhere in Brazil. I’ll forgive a lot of sins for a movie that makes me laugh reasonably often and has good visuals and music. If you like romance and fairy tales and fun and aren’t in the mood for something penetrating or plausible, this would be a good one to check out. Penelope Cruz cannot help but be a movie star–she has a lot of charm in addition to her looks. Her husband character, Toninho, was very easy on the eyes. Their combined visual assault reminds me of the double-wattage Latin aesthetics of Catherine Zeta-Jones and Antonio Banderas in the Mask of Zorro–I enjoyed that film less than this one, actually. And her best friend, Monica the trannie, had a somewhat stereotypical gay supporting role, but was extremely funny–Harold Perrineau, Jr. made this his own.
This movie needs a new recipe.
Attractive actors and colorful sets don’t make a movie. This movie needs a new recipe.
News Flash. Penelope Cruz just isn’t a very good actress. I haven’t seen her give a good performance yet in the 3 or 4 films of hers I’ve watched. Hopefully she can do better than this. She simply doesn’t have the charisma to carry a film. Enough said.
Supposedly this is a fairy tale about a woman who strikes out on her own when she catches her husband cheating on her. Actually this is more like a poorly written soap opera than a fairy tale. The movie never finds the right balance between fantasy and reality. There are so many idiotic plot contrivances in this film that you’ll find yourself laughing with incredulity.
You can see it in the eyes of the performers: what am I doing in this stupid movie? And you’ll be asking yourself: what am I doing watching this insipid film. 70/100. Not a memorable film.
