      Audience Member This was a very sweet love story. The script was a bit sappy, but it is a great option for any fan of chick flicks. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member This was kind of cute and a little cheesy... but I really liked it. It is a made for TV movie, so it was very clean, went very fast, and was an easy watch. I couldn't stop staring at Costas Mandylor... whoever that is. He was easy on the eyes as well ;) Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Audience Member Pretty funny... and slightly boring. TV movie. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member Former PICKET FENCES costars Lauren Holly and Costas Mandylor reunite for Hallmark's made-for-TV romantic comedy JUST DESSERTS. Marco (Mandylor) is an Italian-American baker who discovers that his uncle plans on selling the family's small Bronx bakery to a chain of donut shops. Hoping to save the business, Marco samples an incredible chocolate cake at a swanky Manhattan restaurant and convinces the fiery but beautiful pastry chef Grace (Holly) to enter her recipe in a prestigious baking competition worth $250,000. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member intéressant de voir Costas Mandylor dans un autre rôle qu'un policier, mais sinon, c'est hyper prévisible Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Audience Member Really enjoyed this actually, funny, romantic and kept me amused and interested the whole way through! Good to watch on a rainy day! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
