something lacking
25 December 1999 | by (San Diego, California) – See all my reviews

I love teeny bopper movies such as She's all that, cheesy 80 movies and so forth but this didn't live up to my expectations. For me, the movie didn't flow and didn't really draw me in. The pants that Sara Michelle Geller and her co-chef wore were hilarious but the movie lacked development in certain areas and began to remind me of a bad "Like Water for Chocholate" remake without the depth.
