Labors so desperately to offer a feel-good experience that it ends up being tedious instead.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

Not particularly funny or moving or rich, it seems unsure what kind of chocolate it wants to be.

Will the Mayor learn to dip his fingers in something more filling than holy water? Will Vianne find true love? Will eating too much ganache before finishing your haricots verts give you a stomachache?
