Simply IrresistibleAmanda Shelton is the cook of a small restaurant that runs in the family for many years. Only Amanda can't cook as well as her mom and the restaurant is about to close it doors. But that's about to change when she meets a mysterious man. He sells her a basket filled with crabs and leads her to Tom Barlett, a handsome and rich owner of a big department store.
I've watched this movie a lot of times before, but the last time was a few years back. Last time I tought it was great. A wonderful romantic comedy. And noW? Now I still finds it a wonderful, romantic comedy.
Sarah Michelle Gellar and Sean Patrick Flanery steal the show. It's a great couple to look at and the chemistry is clearly feelable between them. Some scene's are shot fantastic (the dansscene's) and the music the choose fits the music perfectly. At some moments it almost felt as magical as the dishes Gellar prepared.
The only thing I didn't like was a part of the story. Everything was perfect in the beginning. Sure it was predictable, but because it was so fun and charming, I didn't mind. The there is a beautiful scene with Gellar and Flanery, who are deeply in love, kissing without noticing that they are floating in the air. Then there is a turn from Flanery that damage the movie. There are accusations of witchcraft on Gellars account. This didn't fit the movie at all and was completely unnecessairy. Of course, you know how the movie is going to end and it regain that almost magical en romantic atmosphere from the beginning. But that turn is not convincing either. And they also should have dropped the scene in which everybody is crying. Movie doesn't need it and it was pretty annoying.
But oh well, it still is a wonderful, romantic comedy that I can watch againa and again.
BTW. I don't know if it is allowed her, if not, please remove it. A friend of mine has made a site called What I Watch. It is a site in which you can add all the movies and series that you have watched. You can give them a grade (out of 10) or just add a review. This way you have a very nice list of which movies you have watched and compare them to what other people think of them. There are a lot of statistics and you can even add your dvd collection (or blu-ray or many other options) to the site. It is really useful and an easy and fun way to keep track of what you have watched. Maybe a nice tool for all the movie freaks in the manor. It used to be a Dutch only site, but now he translated it to English.
The site is: WhatIWatch.netClick here
to see an overview of everything I have watched since 2007. Believe it or not, the other users watch way, way more then I do.
