Purely Joyful Movie!
Absolutely the worst movie.
This is a coming of age storyline that you've seen in one form or another for decades. It takes a truly unique voice to make yet another one worth watching.
A terrific literary drama and character piece that shows how the process of creating art can be seen differently by those doing it and those looking at it from the outside.
Everyone wants open their own business but come on now, cup cakes ... and a baking competition no less with a huge prize ... this is so cup cake in the sky...i had no problem with the story line or the actors ... i don't remember ever buying a cup cake and doubt very many other do ... the romance was fine ...
I enjoyed this movie bc it was heartwarming, romantic, & charming. It was extremely predictable though. Right from the start I knew the deal with Parker's past & the result of the baking competition was obvious. Otherwise, real cute movie. Not too sad, not too cheesy. Side note: anyone else notice that she wore the same damn black skinny jean/jeggings the entire time, just with different tops? Lol
The acting chemistry between the main actors was good, the "getting to know you" faze in the begin felt natural and the couple was cute together. I do wish there had been more time when casting the extras, especially since they were such a big part of the movie. They just didn't seem to feel as natural together, not unwatchable but they could have done better. The big secret Parker had was pretty predictable. It does have a slight cheesy feel to it but its a movie I can watch with my kids around and don't have to worry what they might start to mimic lol
While Barry Watson did an excellent job with his role, the same cannot be said of his female counterpart. While the acting for Trish was well done, the character herself was unlikeable and appeared very lazy, putting on an apron a few times for about 2 minutes only to take it off when she had done nothing. Granted one scene had one of her employees already doing her job, it still made no sense for her to seem overworked when we can't physically see it. Overall, the character of Trish could have been way better, but her stinky attitude and laziness ruined the movie.
