WHAT A SWEET AND ADORABLE FILM
Verified purchase
NO SPOILERS. FOR ME, IT NEVER NEEDS TO BE HOLIDAY TIME, FOR A REALLY CHARMING FILM. THE TWO PROTAGONISTS IN THE MOVIE ARE
AMONG THE MOST LOVABLE ANYONE COULD ASK FOR. AT A RURAL HOTEL, THE NUCLEUS OF THE ENTIRE TOWN, A VERY FAMOUS CHEF
IS STAYING TO UNWIND AND TO GRIEVE HIS BROTHER’S PASSING. HOWEVER, THE FEMALE MANAGER OF THE HOTEL HAS HER OWN SET OF IMMEDIATE PRESSING PROBLEMS. THE HOTEL IS IN ARREARS FOR FORTY THREE THOUSAND DOLLARS. SHE SLOWLY BECOMES FRIENDLY
WITH THE CULINARY EXPERT, AND HE AGREES TO HELP AROUND THE KITCHEN. A STROKE OF LUCK OCCURS AND THERE IS A TELEVISED
BAKE OFF, WITH A $50,000 PRIZE. AS THE CHEF FRANTICALLY RUSHES TO KEEP THE FEMALE MANAGER LEARNING TO COOK, THE BIG
QUESTION IS WHETHER IT CAN BE DONE, AND IN TIME. YOU MIGHT ENJOY SEEING THE ABSOLUTELY BREATHTAKING ENDING. BRING THE
ENTIRE FAMILY, INCLUDING THE YOUNG ONES. A REAL FAMILY TREAT.

I enjoyed this for what it was, A feel good Christmas movie - people have criticized all that couldn't happen in a week, it's a movie not real life, and who's to say if or if not it could happen. Point being, it's a "Movie" not real life
most Christmas movies like this are "feel good" type of movies - you need to stretch your imagination and if you can't, then don't watch them. I enjoyed the actor portrayals and it was a cute story - I'd recommend watching as long as you realize it's a typical feel good, sappy Christmas movie, also not too long and drug out.

Christmas movie meets cooking competition and
Verified purchase
both are better for the collaboration.

A beautiful country inn by the lake has been in the family for over 100 years. Grandma is sick and the inn is about to be repo’d by the bank. What’s a granddaughter to do? Enter the National cooking contest coming to town, of course. Who cares if she burns everything she “cooks”! There just happens to be a Michelin starred chef hiding out at the inn. So what if he’s obnoxious, rude and reclusive? A $50,000 prize goes to the winner of this contest and the granddaughter will NOT be deterred!

That’s the story in a nutshell. It’s cute, has bad guys in executive clothing, charming small town folks all over the place and a warm family feeling all written around the Christmas season. A good addition to your Christmas watch list for the entire family. It will be especially fun for foodies and wannabes ‘cause there are some very good cooking tips included 🍿

A sweet Christmas escape romance, loved it.
Verified purchase
A cozy Christmas romance, where the scenery is homey picturesque, kind of in the Hallmark style, if slightly low budget, but with less angst for the main characters and a more ethnically diverse cast. It's not a typical Christmas miracle story in that nothing pops out at you but it does encourage you to get in the spirit of Yuletide festivities, suspending a certain cynical realism of the "real world" by following the main character of the hapless Inn manager as she tries to master the culinary arts from scratch in a week in order to win a cooking competition, it's just a movie folks.

I thought the two leads did a good job in building the romance and the chemistry was sweet and innocent like a Christmas escape fantasy should be. Real life during the holidays is stressful enough as it is and this type of fare is a perfect pick me up like a good hot chocolate with lots of whipped cream.

Really nice movie, well written, well directed, with good actors.
Verified purchase
This moving had a really great plot and was engaging and interesting. It was not mushy or sappy, which seems to be so prevalent with the "romance" genre. It is about a woman struggling to keep her family's Inn in business and who needs a sum of money to catch up financially. She enters a cooking competition with the help of a professional chef who has been out of the cooking game due to his personal challenges. The story line keeps the viewer involved. I really enjoyed this movie and would watch it again.

Barely OK but seriously flawed
Verified purchase
One doesn't expect great real life stories from movies like this but I want some thin attachment to possibility. The main problem with this movie is the main female star. Her character doesn't take anything in life seriously. She is too busy flitting around to pay the least bit of attention to what is going on around her. So trying to believe she learns anything about cooking in a week when she won't even shut up for a few minutes to listen to the person trying to teach her is asking too much. There was only one 30 second scene where she was shown actually trying to do what was asked of her. It would have been a much better movie if it showed her actually trying.

Learn to cook in a week?!
Verified purchase
I just couldn't care for any of the characters. And I couldn't get past the idea of teaching a person, who can't cook to save her life, to not only cook but to be so good at it, as to win a contest -- IN A WEEK?! I don't think so. The movie is so predictable... You knew from the very beginning how this movie was going to play out, which made it very boring to watch.

Fairytale! She gets anything she wants and no one says NO!
Verified purchase
I wanted to like it but it is not reality. So if your ok watching a fake movie, the writing was bad I think. The actors were great! Story was pretty good too! Just the writing was to unbelievable. it should have been titled "Yes maam!" Anything she wanted, she got her way.
