Love's Kitchen, one of the most critically panned films of recent years, has stunned even its reviewers with its spectacular demise. Taking just £121 over its opening weekend, a figure which suggests total viewing figures of around 18, it now looks likely to go straight to DVD.
The film, which has featured at festivals in Portugal and the US, stars Dougray Scott as a struggling chef who discovers fresh inspiration in Claire Forlani's visiting US food critic. It features a cameo by celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay, playing himself. As the film now threatens to go the way of Ben Affleck flop Gigli, which was withdrawn from cinemas within days of opening, Ramsay will be glad he chose not to give up the day job at Channel 4.
