New York Times - 08/13/1999
"...[An] extremely good-hearted comedy....A comic rhapsody to romantic love..."
Box Office - 09/01/1999
"...Charming....The cast is uniformly good..."
Los Angeles Times - 08/13/1999
"...[The film] brims over with good humor and high spirits and has some moments of stunning yet tasteful eroticism. Dwyer and Cox are charmers, and that's also the case with BETTER THAN CHOCOLATE..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 08/22/1999
"...BETTER THAN CHOCOLATE puts a sunny, giddy spin on this northerly locale, thanks to Gregory Middleton's lively cinematography..."

Product Description:

Life is going great for Maggie. She has recently moved out on her own and found the woman of her dreams. However, things quickly change when her mother and brother are forced to move into Maggie's tiny loft sublet with her. All the freedom and space she has gained is compromised, and she believes she must keep her blossoming affair a secret. But it's the clandestine romance that inadvertently introduces her family to a host of new experiences, many of which are better than chocolate. Karin Dwyer and Christina Cox are terrific as the young lovers, and Wendy Crewson is splendid as Maggie's mother, who might finally be ready to break out and start having some fun in her life.
