Storyline

Daniel, Sam(antha) and Peter are three old friends living together in a Los Angeles loft. Being gifted with a great cooking skill and good looks, Daniel uses his talent to bring home one beauty after another. As he gives public cooking lessons, there is enough female supply for his wishes. One day, a TV-Producer takes part in one of his courses and watches him work. Then, she offers him his own show, "Cooking for Two". Daniel is more than happy and accepts gratefully. The three friends promise to each other that not even money can bring them apart. But the show develops accidentally into a new direction: Female watchers pour out their problems on Air by telephone, while Daniel has to give partnership-counselling together with cooking recepies and, in a certain way, both subjects seem to be closely related. Daniel, being wealthy and famous, is now about to marry his new love, Jacqueline, when he finds out about some things going on behind the scenes that really do concern him, her, his...

Heavily underrated
21 February 2002 | by (Zwijndrecht, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This movie is better than you read from the reviews. The acting is very real, very heartwarming. I agree that it is another romance comedy, one of the many. But it is really a feel good movie with some real issues. What makes this movie so special? Simple, the emphasize on real friendship, real friends that are there for you whenever you (tend to) go down. They are there for you. And if love and friendship are mixed, you are the luckiest in the world and need to cherish it. I love this movie, simple.
