Perfect recipe for a Christmas movie!
5 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm a life time TV watcher, so i like always watch the movies, this one was good, the cast had chemistry, and it was a real feel good movie, and it has a great moral to the story.Carly Pope was great along with Bobby Cannavale and Christine Baranski!This movie really could have used a different name I think , maybe like "The Christmas Review" so people wouldn't think its just about food, because its about so much more.I think Carly Pope may be the next big thing, shes beautiful , natural, and so believable. If you haven't seen it yet and like Christmas movies that aren't too christmasy then I'll bet you would really enjoy this one.
