About the Movie

Sunday dinner at Mothers Joe's (Irma P. Hall) is a mouth watering, 40 year tradition. As seen through the eyes of her grandson Ahmad (Brandon Hammond), love and laughs are always on the menu, despite the usual rivalries simmering between his mom Maxine (Vivica A. Fox) and her sisters Teri (Vanessa Williams) and Bird (Nia Long). But when serious bickering starts to tear the family apart, the good times suddenly stop. Now it's up to Ahmad to get everyone back together and teach them the true meaning of soul food.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: This new menu movie has a soapy plot, appealing stars, family values, down-home atmosphere and a conviction that there's rarely a problem fried chicken can't cure. There sure are worse ways of looking at the world than that. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Fresh: The steaming platters of fried catfish, macaroni and cheese, sweet corn bread, and black-eyed peas that appear early and often in writer-director George Tillman Jr.'s sentimental family drama should be listed in the credits as costars. – Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly, Jul 7, 2010

Rotten: Soul Food aims to be a banquet of feelings, but mostly it serves up tripe. – Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: An attractive cast and lingering shots of artery-busting delights that amount to pigout pornography. – Susan Wloszczyna, USA Today, Jun 24, 2010
