Hi, I'm Martha Stewart. Sometimes we learn something new about orchids. But today we're going to learn an entirely new recipe with lima beans. Are you kidding me? Where are the lima beans? I'm sitting here talking about lima beans, and there aren't any? Someone on my staff forgot to put out the lima beans? Excuse me?! Why is everyone here so stupid?

I saw this movie last night on NBC, and I was expecting it to trash the reputation of everyone's favourite "Kitchen Commando": Martha Stewart. What it did was bring to light the background of this fascinating, and business savvy woman. She wasn't portrayed as a tyrant, and she wasn't firing people for having water on the lettuce like the "Queen of Mean"-Leona Helmsley did during her heyday in the '80s. The movie starts off on the set of her "Martha Stewart Living" show, where she learns of the news of the insider information scandal on Wall Street. From there, the movie flashes back to a young Martha, and the budding of her entrepreneurial spirit-somewhat ruthless for a kid, then onto her relationship with her perfectionist father and modeling career. Cybill Danning plays Martha Stewart, and really shines in this role as always. Cybill has Martha's mannerisms and facial expressions down to a 'T'! Throughout the movie, it doesn't try to pass judgement on Martha Stewart for the sake of dramatizing her life events. Instead, it seemed to take a middle of the road approach, but it was still entertaining. For a made for TV movie, it's an interesting look into the life of a woman who has changed homemaking from a humdrum existence into a trendy art form!
