Anne Wheeler directs this romantic comedy about a woman who desperately tries to hide her lesbian affair from her visiting mother. Wendy Crewson, Karyn Dwyer, Christina Cox, Anne-Marie MacDonald, Peter Outerbridge, Marya Delver and Kevin Mundy star. Previously titled Maggie & Lila.
Capsule Review: If it weren’t for the relative novelty of having lesbian, bisexual and transsexual characters, Better Than Chocolate would have been just another routine romantic comedy. A few good performances compensate somewhat for the stereotypical LBT characters. The true test: Is it Better Than Chocolate. Unfortunately, not really.
