Too glamorous!
13 February 2017 | by stevewyzardSee all my reviews

I really enjoyed A Dash of Love, but there were a few things that slightly interfered with the obligatory "Hallmark Channel suspension-of-disbelief". Jen Lilley was really beautiful (and those HUGE eyes!) in the role of Nikki, but for a hard-working chef, she was almost too glamorous. There are a number of scenes where she's over a stove with full make-up, her hair down, manicured nails, and wearing high heels. I'm not in the food service industry, but does this seem right? Even when she's outside of the kitchen, she was always fully made-up and seemingly wore 15 different shades of lipstick throughout the movie. While Lilley did a good job of making the character sympathetic for the audience, this might have been a better opportunity for someone a little more "plain Jane".

And about this "pop-up" restaurant idea. Is it really that easy to procure permits and insurance for just a few days? This may actually be possible, taking into account the number of food trucks out there, but I don't know for sure.

Also, would 100% of their reservations really cancel based on one bad review? In spite of these things, I still enjoyed the movie. What will make it unforgettable for me is the usage of Sinatra's version of "The Way You Look Tonight". Priceless!
