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 »

corny and just sad
29 March 2014 | by (Belpre, Ohio) – See all my reviews

I had a hard time watching this movie through to the end, because at times it was so bad, I had to turn the sound down. The worst was probably when they were playing that song and singing "sweet sweets" or whatever it was. I couldn't take more than a few seconds of it, it was really bad. The acting was so bad I thought I was watching a soap opera (is that what the two lead actors were in that most of the other reviewers mentioned?).

It must have been a soap opera, because it was soap opera bad. The French accent was so bogus it was laughable. Wolfgang Puck didn't even save this movie. Nobody could. I can't even find anything good to say about it.

As a guy, I am unashamed to admit I like a good Hallmark movie. A GOOD one. But there was just nothing good about it.
