This need extends to the bedroom, but her husband Tonino Murilo Benicio, who owns the restaurant where she works, doesn't like to make love in the fashion suggested by the title. This is hardly the only thing about their relationship that she finds stifling, and when Isabella discovers Tonino in bed with another woman, she leaves for America, where with the help of cross-dressing friend "Monica" Harold Perrineau Jr., she becomes a star as the host of a TV cooking show, Passion Foods Live. Woman on Top was the first American film from Venezuelan director Fina Torres.

    Love this movie! It's a cute movie with a wonderful mellow feel

    Love this movie! It's a cute movie with a wonderful mellow feel to it. The scenery of Brazil, San Francisco, the music throughout the movie and the wonderful cooking scenes were exceptional. It isn't a main stream blockbuster movie that everyone will like. However, if you like cute, feel good, lighthearted romantic movies then you will definitely enjoy this movie -- one you can watch over and over again. :-)

    Nothing Funny

    There is European funny and American funny. American romance and European romance. The sex is the only thing we have in common. Otherwise, the continents are diverged and this movie shows with good reason.
