This bread is delicious!
4 May 2003 | by jendon17See all my reviews

What a beautiful movie! It's fun, romantic, sexy, and heartbreaking. Like many women born in 1970, I liked Scott Baio before I saw this movie, now I LOVE him. He does a fantastic job in this film. All of the performances are good - Rosemary Prinz as Bella is superb. Melissa Martin's screenplay and direction are first rate. Even though you'll cry (and you will cry, unless you have a heart of stone), this is one of those genuine, life-affirming, feel-good movies that do not come along too often. Do yourself a favor and see this movie, then tell all of your friends to do the same.
