    If you'd like to see a film that is like Romeo and Juliet had a baby with Rachel Ray's cooking show then this is the film for you. It really isn't as bad as it sounds, but I wouldn't say it's good either. I think the movie works best as a whimsical mystery and following the reporter trying to figure out what was up with this woman and her stew that had an otherworldly quality to them that would calm a serial killer, give a man back his sense of smell and simply put everybody around her stew and its smell in a trance. The story, even before you find out what made the stew (ie: the romance stuff near the end), isn't great. It's just not particularly interesting to follow, the reporter goes from person to person finding out little details that then lead to a bigger question that needs to be answer. Then when he finds out that answer, there are even more questions left. I think the story should've been simplified, it didn't need to be as elaborate as it was. The romance stuff isn't really any better. It's corny and, unsurprisingly, melodramatic. The movie is never bad, and again the mysterious and whimsical aspects of the film were good and the movie does have a solid cast, but the story isn't good and more elaborate than it needs to be. Still an average film at best though, so it's not all terrible, but I wouldn't recommend it either.
