Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
It placed second for the People's Choice Award at the 2000 Toronto Film Festival--after "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon." That's about right.
Chicago Tribune - Michael Wilmington
The kind of movie some audiences are starved for, a comedy with a human face, warmth and spirit.
Portland Oregonian - Kim Morgan
Appropriate music, lovely cinematography and stellar performances by both a subtly moving Neill and a likable, barrel-chested super-American Warburton.
Wall Street Journal - Joe Morgenstern
Apollo 11's mission was a singular chapter in the story of mankind; The Dish finds a whimsical, winning way of telling it anew.
New York Daily News - Jami Bernard
For all its folksy jocularity, the movie inspires a sense of global patriotism. In the big picture, every little dish counts.

The Dish (2000)
