Editorial Reviews

Desiree Harper's (Kathryn Morris) perfect life as the wife of a high-powered Manhattan doctor comes to a sudden end when her husband says he wants a divorce. To make matters worse, he invokes their ironclad pre-nup, leaving her penniless. Desiree soon finds herself abandoned by her rich friends and moves back to New Jersey to help her father run his struggling bakery.

Though Desiree wants nothing more than to return to her high-class life, spending time with her father causes her to see things differently. She rediscovers her love of baking and puts her business degree to work to save her father's shop.  When Desiree's success at the bakery leads to an unexpected opportunity, will she choose to recapture what she's lost, or what she's recently husband unexpectedly dumps her for his acupuncturist. Faced with found?

A good family movie that everyone can enjoy. This movie is funny, a little predictable, but worth watching for sure.

With this movie you get the typical, clean-cut family-type movie that Hallmark has become famous for. This particular one follows a fairly tried and true formula for romantic comedies. In this case, a woman who is used to fancy living and luxurious shopping is forced to move back home after her rich surgeon husband announces that he has been cheating on her. The ironclad prenuptual agreement she signed means she is penniless and has to rely on her older father who owns a bakery in New Jersey. Along the way, she helps to rejuvenate the bakery and she meets a nice guy who owns a fancy restaurant in the country. The main character is somewhat unlikable at the start of the movie, but becomes a bit softer as things go along. Most of the other characters seem pleasant. The main issue with the film is that there isn't anything terribly original and there isn't a whole lot of relationship development between the main character and the nice guy she meets. It really ends up being more of a movie about going back home than a romantic comedy. If you like clean, low-key TV movies, this one might be worth checking out. If you are looking for something really fresh, this one probably won't be it.

This is a cute movie. It makes us laugh and smile. Some may call it "sappy" but I tend to watch movies that are cute, feel-good movies that I can relax and just plain enjoy viewing. I've watched this several times on cable, and wanted it for home, to be viewed whenever we desired to do so.

I love this Movie The Sweeter Side of Life I'm a huge fan of Kathryn Morris. The actress is brilliant in this zany comedy. Who knew she was so, funny this Movie is hysterical. What I loved about it is she thinks her life is happy, content. Like, lessons we learn in life we can't take things, people for granted. It's the simple things that matter not the material things.

I guess you've got it good when you're the pampered housewife of a famous Manhattan plastic surgeon. I am referring to Desiree Harper (Kathryn Morris) whose husband is the "cosmetic foot doctor to the stars." (He specializes in "toe-besity.") The good doctor is fully paid up on his jerkface dues. Keep that in mind because, one day after their wedding anniversary, he dumps his wife for his 20-year-old acupuncturist. So here's Desiree, post-heave ho, penniless and stripped of her posh digs and not even allowed to keep her wedding ring (it's all in the pre-nup). Plus, her ex just put a restraining order on her.

With her upper crust friends suddenly all judgy and deserting her, Desiree flees back home to Flemington, New Jersey, to her widowed pops (James Best) who dwells on top of the family bakery. Fifth Avenue has never been so out of reach, and yet I love that Desiree's old room has still got that Rick Springfield poster on the wall and that her alarm clock is a Rubik's Cube.

How's Desiree at reassessing? Can she adjust her priorities, adapt to a more mundane, lower tax bracket lifestyle? Can she learn to appreciate what really matters in life: family, friendship, pride in one's work? Or, as I like to call it, things that poor people have? Once upon a time she'd earned an MBA from Columbia, so can she work something up to revitalize her dad's failing bakery? But, man, she needs to stop giving the world a news flash each time she breaks a nail. Get it together, Desiree.

I rate it a better-than-average 3.5 out of 5 stars. THE SWEETER SIDE OF LIFE is a cute Hallmark Channel original movie that first aired on late January, 2013.
