Reviews

Joe Baltake Sacramento Bee | January 01, 2000

The film is something of a subtle accomplishment -- a commingling of froth, sensuality and moral awareness that somehow works.

Steve Murray Atlanta Journal-Constitution | January 01, 2000

Short and sweet, it's suitable for a date night that includes both a movie and dinner.

Jay Carr Boston Globe | January 01, 2000

A romantic fairy tale that's light and in several ways seductive, if not exactly filling. Still, there's always something enticing for the eye.

Louis B. Parks Houston Chronicle | January 01, 2000

If it were a song, it would be a happy pop number -- The Girl From Ipanema -- with a tune you can't ignore.

Jonathan Foreman New York Post | January 01, 2000

Woman on Top is a lot less substantial, but no less enjoyable than the original food, sex and 'magic realism' hit of 1992, Like Water for Chocolate.
