This romantic comedy is probably more of a fantasy tale than anything else. There were a few chuckles and some sweet moments along the way, but, unfortunately, I found most of the film to be quite unfunny even annoying at times.
Two cousins Vivien and Chloe, Aimee Teegarden and Krysta Rodriguez respectively, lost their parents on the same day in an accident, and were taken in by their Aunt Isabelle, who owns a long established bakery in Brooklyn. However, when Isabelle suddenly passes and leaves the shop to her two nieces, she also leaves a huge debt load to the bank, who is looking to foreclose on the property asap. Thus, Vivien and Chloe will race against time to find a way of keeping the bakery afloat.
There's actually a large ensemble cast here, whose characters all intersect with each other throughout the movie. The film was directed by Gustavo Ron, who also co-wrote the script with Paco Zegers.
Overall, as mentioned, there are some moments to like here but the movie just came across to me, for the most part, as too awkward and staged, so that I couldn't connect with its characters.
