Trivia

Since the title and central theme of this movie "Just Desserts" is desserts, particularly chocolate, it's interesting to note that the main chef character said he added water to his chocolate concoction, a box to hold an engagement ring he was asked to make. When the other main chef character, his love interest, tastes the chocolate, she is so impressed with how it tastes, she faints. Anyone who has ever melted chocolate knows that allowing even the smallest hint of water to melted chocolate will cause it to "seize" and become irreparably grainy. The resulting confection has a mouth feel of mud. See more »

Mindless fun...
2 March 2004 | by See all my reviews

I watched this movie because of Costas Mandylor and Lauren Holly. I adored them together on Picket Fences, so it was a treat to see them together again. This was not the best movie ever made, but it was cute. Very predictable, but sometimes mindlessly fun movies are just what I need.

The desserts were gorgeous, and I wanted to eat all of them. I did love it when that one fell apart though. I bet it still tasted good.

Costas and Lauren still had the great chemistry that they had back on Picket Fences, and I swooned as they kissed in this movie.

I wouldn't watch this again, but it was a great filler for one night.
