Disappointingly awful, yet watched the whole thing
15 March 2004 | by (Chicago, USA) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie on account of having an interest in movies with baking or cooking in it. The most authentic part of this movie involves the scenes where food is being prepared, and yet, like everything else in the movie, it reeks of shoddy, TV-movie production. The editing was jumpy, the dialog was dreadful, and the accents defied belief. No one from anywhere speaks like "me want this, me no want that". Bleckh.
