To correct the description this is the 2004 “Just Desserts”, it has an IMDB rating of 5.9. The reason I bring up the IMDB rating is that I am not normally a Lauren Holly fan, but this movie was very well acted by almost all actors, so I looked it up. Character development is a little underdeveloped, and in my opinion, a couple of the supporting roles should have gone to others. The overall quality of the movie is little affected, and for an evening in, you could do a lot worse.

This movie is soooo New York, everything from the corner bakery to the way people talk. One cannot help but fall in love Marco, the leading man. Here's a nice Italian boy who loves to bake, so much so he has no time to meet Miss Right. His desserts are exquisite. One day he approaches a well-known Manhattan chef and together they enter a contest where first prize is $250,000. The way Marco and Grace team together in the bake-off, the way Marco plays his cards with her ever-present boyfriend and gains Grace in the end is something every man should pay attention to. You will love this movie.

I have watched this a couple of times as a television broadcast and can now watch whenever I want. This is typical Hallmark romance where boy and girl can't stand each other, but by the time credits roll around everyone is together. Family fare that is very enjoyable.

Wrong Purchase but Loved It Anyway!!

I wanted to purchase "Simply Irresistible" which stars Sarah Jessica Gehler which movie is about a magical dessert that she created, and got confused by the name of the movie "Just Desserts." However, I truly enjoyed this romantic and funny comedy!

Cute Movie

It's a cute movie but a little corny at times. I think it could have been a better movie with a little tweaking of the storyline by making it a little more realistic. For instance, they could've expanded more on the struggles of working class immigrants, and they could've made the bake-off a little more realistic and not as corny. This is a stereotypical Hallmark/Lifetime movie. I watched it through NetFlix initially but decided to purchase it on Amazon.com to have as a part of my DVD collection.

Costas Mandylor, still handsome by today's standards. I am glad to finally see him in some more A-List movies (i.e. the Saw series) these days. Although, whoever encourages him to keep doing these Sci-Fi movies, he or she need to find a different direction for his career. I would love to see him in movies which are higher quality than Hyenas, etc.
