Not the worst, but pretty darn bad.
Lacey Chabert has some good Comedic chops when the material is there. It wasn't in this one. Also, someone needs to take Lacey aside and tell her to lose the ever present nervous giggle and the eye-liner. They are both seriously distracting. One is a very tired look, and the former threatens to be the next Hallmark inspired drinking game. Also character she played seemed a little man hungry.
Even for a Hallmark, this was cheesy, trite, and dull. Cupcakes, baking competition, small business in trouble, dumped but still game heroine to the rescue, successful lucrative career given up for love and a childhood dream, royalty in the house, Cinderella entrance at a ball...was there any Hallmark cliche left behind?
The stars I did give it were for the location filming in Bruges, a pretty hot kiss at the end, and for Brittany Bristow who played the owner of the B&B. She was a charmer.
