It was all very predictable, if I'm honest. Zeta-Jones plays a buttoned up chef who inherits her niece (played by Abigail Breslin, the kid from Little Miss Sunshine) when her sister dies (and doesn't know what to do with her). Ekhart plays the more passionate chef who is brought in while Zeta-Jones deals with the death of her sister.
All in all, it was a decent enough film that most people will have seen a number of times before if you've ever been to the cinema with a girlfriend or wife (I think I was the only single male in the cinema). Zeta-Jones and Ekhart, both of whom can act, held it together pretty well though.
Incidentally, I've not seen much stuff with Zeta Jones in it and I always thought of her as being a bit young, but she looked an age appropriate 37 in this film, which is something you don't see many thespians do.
