Storyline

Elizabeth is the star of a successful cooking show and author of several cookbooks. But when her manager, Alexander sees forest ranger Jefferson, who lost his cabin in a fire, comment on TV about wishing he could get a home-cooked Christmas dinner, he arranges for a special live show on Christmas, for Elizabeth to cook him Christmas Dinner. Only Elizabeth can't cook, and trying to keep Jefferson and the viewing public from finding out on a live show may be a little difficult. Written by Brian W Martz <B.Martz@Genie.com>

Unbearably Bad
9 June 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The original was a gem; beautifully written, charmingly acted,

well directed. Why remake it? There is nothing about this

version that works. The premise does not work in the 1990s, the

stars are flat; the direction insipid.

Save two hours of your life. Skip this and rent the original
