'No Reservations' serves up leftovers

One should have reservations about No Reservations, a romantic comedy that does precious little with the considerable resources at its disposal.

Those resources include a pair of actresses - the formidable Catherine Zeta-Jones, lovely and commanding as ever, and the effortlessly charming Abigail Breslin, fresh off last year's Oscar nomination for Little Miss Sunshine - who alone should make any movie worth the price of admission.

That they don't isn't so much their fault as it is the people behind the camera, who are far too happy to follow well-trod cinematic paths when they could at least stretch the genre's boundaries. The result is a bland, forgettable film that goes down too easy for its own good.

No Reservations (Warner Bros.) Starring Catherine Zeta-Jones, Aaron Eckhart, Abigail Breslin. Directed by Scott Hicks. Rated PG. Time 106 minutes.
