Editorial Reviews

Uptight French chef Sara Westbrook (Teri Polo) gets fired up when her upscale café, Chez Varenne, is suddenly overshadowed by a new restaurant moving in next door run by a group of rowdy firemen. Led by handsome former fire fighter Gill Callahan (James Patrick Stuart) and his friend Danny (Rockmond Dunbar), The Five Alarm Grill is soon a big success while Sara and Patsy (Romy Rosemont), her pastry chef, struggle to bring in customers.

Sara suddenly softens when she meets Gill's ten-year-old daughter Hannah (Bailee Madison) who she can't help but take under her wing when she learns Hannah is growing up without a mom. Ignoring the obvious tension between her dad and Sara, Hannah is soon playing matchmaker. As Gill and Sara slowly begin to stir up romance, their relationship is tested once again when a local food critic gets in the mix. Can the couple resist the temptation to compete with each other, or will the heat of competition drive them apart?

I was amazed that a film with such a simple plot could be so charming. The story is very engaging and the dialogue is well crafted. So many films seem these days to be produced on an assembly line with little quality control. Just get another teenage mentality film out. This film is truly fun to watch and reminds me of the film Return to Me.

Had I mesmerizing powers, I would right now look you in the eyeball and compel you to watch this movie. Later, you can thank me for it. Pardon me a moment as I ransack the attic for my watch on a fob. It swings fine and with hypnotic purpose.

It's another Hallmark Channel joint, so it's very much of the family friendly persuasion. I feel it's one of the best films to air on that network; that's how much I enjoyed it. Don't let the standard romantic plot dishearten you. Take in instead the expert execution of that same standard plot, and the across-the-board chemistry of an engaged cast, and the movie's big heart.

Here's what's on the menu: Sara Westbrook (Teri Polo) is a classically trained chef, fancy head chef's uniform and perfect posture and very uptight. In Central Valley (wherever that is), she runs Chez Varenne, a restaurant specializing in exquisite French cuisine. Sara is a food psychic, so good at her job she can detect all the ingredients in any dish you care to place before her (I've the same preternatural skill, but it only works if you place a Reese's Pieces before me). Chez Varenne is underperforming. It boasts an underwhelming clientele; it's barely turning a profit. Sara is more uptight than ever. She's desperately wracking her brain.

It's hard to wrack your brain when the place next door is blasting rock & roll noises. Sara's new work neighbor is Gill Callahan (James Patrick Stuart), widower and retired fireman and now fledgling restaurateur. Gill just opened the Five Alarm Grill, an eatery that trots out barbecued comfort food. Sara welcomes Gill by busting in and asking him to turn down the music. Gill refuses. And, just like that, the birth of a feud and the onslaught of pranks from both parties.

I seen bits and pieces of this movie on the Hallmark channel and I was very interested now that I purchased it, and watched it; I found I liked the movie very much. It was everything I expected Hallmark to offer. Good family entertainment.

Good and light comedy. No foul language. I think both male and female, regardless of age, would enjoy this movie. The little girl in the movie is very entertaining.

This is a pretty standard TV movie with a pretty standard romantic comedy plot. It is the story of how a French chef who owns a fancy but struggling restaurant learns to deal with a widowed dad and former fireman who opens up the "Five Alarm Grill" next door. At first there is a lot friction between them, but over time, they warm to each other. Most of the characters in this movie are likable and fairly realistic. They do a good job with their roles. There is nothing terribly original about the plot, but at the same time, there is also nothing outlandish or unrealistic. This is simply a nice, clean love story. It is one of the better TV movies I have seen and I recommend it for a nice low-key evening of watching.

I had to buy this for him after he saw it on tv. He cries like a girl. It's a cute story and nice respite from murders and foul language.
