Day 81

Movie: Simply Irresistible
Starring: Sarah Michelle Gellar, Sean Patrick Flanery
Genre: Romance, Comedy,
Year: 1999
Format: DVD

Plot:When Amanda finds out she's about to loose her restaurant, she becomes the best chef in town and meets Tom, the man of her dreams. Only he's terrified and believes she's a witch who's cast a spell on him.

This is an upgrade/remake of For Water Like Chocolate.  The one main element it shares is how food can share our emotions. And how you can't stop fate from pairing you with the right person.

I find the ironic twist being that the character of Tom starts off  saying to his assistant that falling in love should sweep you off your feet and be magical like you have no control over the situation, then when it actually happens he refuses to accept it and blames the woman for cursing him. When in truth he knew from the moment he tasted her food she was able to open something in him he'd been afraid to have open before.

What do I think I learned from this film?
Food is the most conducive form of expression there is and the easiest way to let someone know you care about them. Men will say anything when they are afraid of themselves in order to stay in control.
