Feast of Love
It seems destined to find an indulgent second home as an unusually classy slot plugger over at Lifetime.

E Film Critic
Theres a people are good feeling permeating the film, which is difficult to resist.
Swinging from mildly irritating to rather enjoyable, the film eventually settles at merely watchable.
All the couples have palpable chemistry, and Kinnear and Freeman seem so convinced theyre in a respectable movie that they actually make it one.
Ny Daily News
As a meditation on the vicissitudes of love, on the need for people to connect, and the struggles that come by both making and missing those connectio ..
For a film that purports to be an epic consideration of Love in Our Time, Feast is strikingly unthoughtful and uninterested in any but the most obviou ..

Spirituality And Practice
But shes having an affair with David (Billy Burke), who cant understand why shes considering marrying this milquetoast.
They clearly still dont know quite how to market this unsung film.
Combust Ible Celluloid
Its nice to see these ideas played out by a fine and in several key roles, largely unfamiliar cast.
It doesnt end there, though, and Burnetts script is full of more forced complications to add even more frustration to the already frustrating concept.
Mark Reviews Movies
...wrought with two dimensional characters saddled with not very believable situations. I should care about these people and do not.
Everyone in Feast of Love is messed up in some way, but none of those ways make them interesting.
Eric Ds Nider
Freeman doesnt really have much to do but play himself and intone luxuriantly in the voiceover.
Shadows On The Wall
Sad as he may be in Feast of Love, Harry makes earnest efforts to inspire laughter in his sad friends and acquaintances.

One of those rare cinematic treats that, for most of us, will go down easily and leave us with a sweet, mellow aftertaste.
For a film that tries to be a smarter, more cerebral, romantic comedy drama, Feast of Love sure does a lot of dumb things.
It just seems a waste, since hes one of the best human beings the movies have.

A disarmingly moving film about love, relationships and secret lives.
But youll have to suppress your urge to groan and/or laugh out loud so she doesnt accuse you of ruining her good time.
Feast Of Love is a mixed bag, but its worth dipping into if you can swallow the sweet stuff.
A film that resonates in spite of its shortcomings...Feast of Love is a frothy, whimsical title too frothy and too whimsical for a film that might hav ..

If the films only flaw was that it revolves around irritatingly shallow people, that would be bad enough but it doesnt even bother to develop them.

it was definitely an interesting movie that caught my attention more than I ever expected it would
Thanks to his excellent cast, and a very light touch, Benton makes these tangled relationships both real and touching.
The whirring sound you hear is that of Neil Simon, screenwriter of the 1972 film on which this is louchely based, spinning in his retirement.
The love feasted upon in this film is not about commitment or selflessness. No, the love in this Feast is very fickle and selfish.
Feast of Love is salvaged from a tendency towards self indulgent sentimentality and overwrought, far too self conscious plotting, by a graceful litera ..
Sure, theres a backstory, and a predictable one that will bubble up mawkishly.
Killer Movie Reviews
Feast of Love is a sunny side up buffet not that its trysts arent trying.
If its a choice between cleaning out the shed and seeing this opt for the shed.
A bizarre coda seeks to put all the killing in some perspective, but its dumb enough to make that historical preface seem deep.
This heart warmer by Robert Benton has some of the tender wisdom and humor of his other features.
Never feels much more than a softly lit, meandering, slightly senile made for cable television movie.
Fortunately Benton is an artist, so ones contrary truth doesnt baffle him.
Only the romance of two brittle twentysomethings (Toby Hemingway and Alexa Davalos) breaks free of the faux profundity and tedium that swallow up this ..
The majority of the film is filled with arguing, betrayal and fear with a twinge of hope.
The Scorecard Review
A bit too involved and convenient at times, but still classy and heartfelt all the way.
Despite its myriad departures into romantic disappointment and disillusionment, Allison Burnetts script acknowledges the sometimes sad but inescapable ..
A beautifully photographed look at a dozen people in Portland, Oregon who find that love is far from an unmixed blessing.
With its warmhearted ending and soft light, Feast of Love is a pleasant way to spend a rainy afternoon, but it doesnt linger in the memory the way Bax ..
For all of Harrys patronizing vocalization about the emotional physiology of his neighbors, there isnt anyone here who sustains believability.
Film Critic 1963 Typepad
The movie confuses puppy love with the real thing, and thats why Feast of Love is such a dog.
Feast of Love is a feel good movie for the semi literati; as such it may grate on those too sophisticated for its smooth ways and easy answers.
If my life was made into a film it would be this one. Long, boring, occasionally pretentious and completely uninvolving.
Annoying flatness permeates Feast of Love, preventing characters from reaching convincing depths of expression.
2 The Advocate
Contemplates the bodies of beautiful young people in order that it may more fully appreciate the predicament old people find themselves in.
Feast of Love is the kind of movie that gets conveniently omitted from rsums.
Feast of Love will fill you up with trite dialogue and sappy plot contrivances.
Nice to look at, but about as weighty as the froth atop a tall skim latte.
We arent to run and leave when the going gets tough: That isnt love, it is selfishness.
You end up rather hoping that when this crew of Cupids casualties ask for an Americano to go they mean just that.
Feast of Love is essentially a feel good Hollywood romcom but its one with twists, proper characters, and sadness underscoring the cosy love scenes.
