      Critics Consensus

      This romantic comedy may look good on paper, but it's too predictable and melancholy for the genre.

      Ravi T Pretty good. I liked it! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/03/24 Full Review Ashley H it has earned my points just because it has food in it, and the story was quite nice too. just the right amount of romance. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 10/30/23 Full Review Emery A It's a cool film that you can watch in the afternoon, without any regrets and leave with a warm heart! It delivers everything it promises, a little cooking, drama, family and a touch of romance. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/03/23 Full Review Sean S When you see the cast and the idea you think this is a perfect match for a rom com, but this movie falls flat and doesn't have many laughs. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 08/16/23 Full Review Breno G Special Effects: 1,0/Sound Effects: 1,0/Acting: 0,5/Story: 1,5 Rated 4 out of 5 stars 06/22/23 Full Review Thomas K I really, really do not like this movie. It is boring as hell. There are thousands of movies out there, with the same story, the same problems, same same all over it.

Nov 13, 2019 Full Review Rachel Wagner Rachel's Reviews (YouTube) An underrated romantic comedy. Rated: B May 9, 2019 Full Review Kelly Vance East Bay Express Chalk it up as an alternative to watching a kitchen full of singing rats. Apr 28, 2011 Full Review Read all reviews
