As I have learnt from the multitude of reality TV cooking shows which
make regular appearances in the Malone household, the secret to a good
dish is carefully selecting fresh ingredients and balancing the
different flavors together in order for them to all work in harmony on
the plate. However in Love's Kitchen they do things in a different way.
Essentially chucking a bunch of old, out of date and re-heated ideas
into the mixing bowl, bunging it in the oven and after 90 mins they
have produced an under-cooked, half-baked idea of film, devoid of any
real flavour or substance.
Love's Kitchen tells the lukewarm tale of successful chef and
restaurateur Rob Haley (Dougray Scott) who looses all passion for food
after the tragic death of his wife in a car accident. A scathing review
of his restaurant leads to a cringe worthy intervention by Gordon
Ramsey, before our Rob heads off to the countryside and buys The Boot,
an old country pub which his late wife fell in love with before her
untimely demise and is now frequented by an American food critic
(Claire Forlani). Here Rob proceeds to try and recapture his love for
food and turn around both the culinary and fiscal fortunes of The Boot.
So it appears as if Love's Kitchen is essentially a 90 minute episode
of Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares, which just in case you were wondering,
that's not a good thing.
Most rom-coms are predictable, so much so that you can sketch out the
plot within the first 5 mins or so of meeting the characters. Why some
work and others don't is how much the audience grows to like and invest
in the two leads. I am big rom-com fan and a huge admirer of a happy
ending. I don't mind it being telegraphed, but I want to enjoy the
journey. I need to want the couple to be together at the end of the
film. Within 5 mins of watching Love's Kitchen I wanted to take a
spatula and start slapping people around the face.
Everything about the film felt forced. It felt as if they had studied
what had worked in Four Weddings or Notting Hill and tried to recreate
it piece by piece. Bringing together a British chap and an American
lass has always worked well in the past, but this time the main leads
are simply unconvincing with precious little chemistry together. They
didn't seem suited to each other at all, so you just didn't care what
happens to them.
The supporting cast fared little better and appeared to be the dregs of
out of work British soap opera actors. Eastenders was well represented
and I almost fell of my chair when Nigel from Brookside turned up. I am
sure if I had looked hard enough I probably would have found an extra
from Crossroads somewhere in the background. There were moments when I
couldn't believe what I was watching and hearing. The script sounded
like it had come from a Carry On film and some of the characters felt
like a cross between caricatures of English country folk and characters
from Viz (get ooorffff my land!!) . At times I felt embarrassed for the
cast, but mostly I just wanted it to stop.
First time writer/director James Hacking did learn one good thing from
Four Weddings though and that was Simon Callow. He is star of this film
and simply delightful as a boozed up food critic, quite reminiscent of
Keith Floyd. I could have happily have watched a film just about him.
Apparently when then film opened to a small select 5 screens, it only
took 121 GBP in its opening weekend, making it one of the lowest UK
openings of all time. You can see why.
