The Gordon Ramsay cameo (and it IS a cameo, don't be fooled by the cover art) is cute, but other than that, there's not much to like about this movie. It's very dull and draggy, and none of the characters are particularly dimensional or even all that likeable. Just more background noise, for the most part.
This is a great Date Movie! Loved the pop in spots by Gordon Ramsey. They were funny. Hate I didn't recognize the name of it when I saw it on STARZ 4yrs after it came out. It's a typical love story but I like those so my 3 stars might be more generous than others. There were some funny moments too it isn't a complete chick flick.
I wanted to and expected to enjoy this but its basically Britain's equivalent to a Lifetime movie with an absolutely unimaginative story, flat romance, bland characters and filled with every rom-com movie cliché going. I was actually surprised by how, well not bad exactly -because the acting and production is fine but just unoriginal this was. I did enjoy the leads (Dougray Scott & Claire Forlani) but their romance was still pretty uninspiring. Scott plays a successful chef and restaurateur in London who loses his zest for cooking after his wife dies in a car accident. With encouragement from friends (including a cameo from Gordon Ramsey) he buys a country pub and turns it into a gourmet restaurant. Forlani is a food critique and his mousse catches her eye. 6/28/14
