Simply Irresistible

Genre: Comedy, Romance; Starring: Sean Patrick Flanery, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Dylan Baker, Patricia Clarkson; Director: Mark Tarlov; Release Date Wide: 02/05/1999; MPAA Rating: PG-13; Distributor: 20th Century Fox Film Corporation

Even Gellar’s biggest fans should be sorry to see her in this bad career move, as a so-so chef who suddenly starts cooking enchanting meals, thanks to a magical crab heaven-sent by her dead mother. Among the bewitched is a handsome young executive (Flanery) who literally gets swept off his feet when a kiss sends him floating toward the ceiling. Theoretically Simply Irresistible is romantic; on screen the whimsy curdles like day-old crème brûlée. Re-rent ”Cruel Intentions” instead. Better yet, save your money and catch this week’s ”Buffy the Vampire Slayer.”
