You won't get fat on this one
The plot is pretty thin, but a cute cast makes this film worth watching.
It's about a talented young cook who becomes a TV cooking idol. The action
is slow in this standard rags-to-riches and finding one's self plot, but
is an amusing, sweet story..

Pretty Actors, Cute Story = Nice Little Summer Popcorn Movie
EAT YOUR HEART OUT manages to do what few movies in this summer's
theater spectrum are able to do - entertain with a well cast, tautly
directed, romantic yet clever bit of welcome fluff. Though this film
dates back to 1999 it stands up well in comparison to other films in
this genre. It is a classy little act! Daniel Haus (the very handsome
German actor Christian Oliver) is a gifted chef whose dream is to write
a cookbook. Out of monetary necessity he shares a loft with artist
Samantha (Pamela Segall) and ropy friend Peter (John Craig) who has
many issues with relationships. When good fortune befalls Daniel in the
guise of a TV Cooking/Lovelorn show run by Kathryn (the vastly
under-used Linda Hunt) and agent Jaqueline (a miscast Laura San Giacomo
from 'Pretty Woman' fame), his life and perception of his friends
changes. He is dressed, groomed, and bedded by Jaqueline to the point
that his friends barely recognize him. Daniel's ongoing family problems
also disrupt his life until finally his father's illness alters his
outlook and he rearranges his priorities. How that is accomplished and
the results these surprises have on all involved form the end of the
The nice thing about EAT YOUR HEART OUT is that it never takes itself
seriously: there are no ominous overtones to the everyday problems many
of us face, just realistic resolutions. The entire cast is quite good
with especial attention to Pamela Segall and Christian Oliver. The
direction by Felix O. Adlon ("Salmonberries') is sensitive and well
paced and a nod goes to the fine editing of Dan Lebental. Definitely
worth viewing for a warm summer evening's pleasant entertainment. Grady
