A story about how when life closes one door on you to follow your passion to another venture while never giving up. Revenge's Gabriel Mann plays Ethan.

Just learned that Brittany Murphy died at a young age. What a waste of talent and a beautiful person Sorry for her family. We will all miss her talent.

I check this out often. It is a chick flick. It is a great movie.

My guy at the time actually turn me on to it because he had seen it.

It is a funny movie about personal evolution with a happily ever after scenario.

Cute movie, it most certainly would fall under the chick flick catergory. I believe someone defined this movie asThe Karate Kid, but with food. That is a decent description.

I enjoyed this movie! Brittany is a great actress. She's gone too soon. Such a great actress.

Surprisingly enjoyable! Not necessarily a "teen movie."
