  1. Exactly the sort of personalized, non-assembly line treat some audiences are always trying, in vain, to find.

    Think low-budget ''Moonstruck'' but think again: A regional dish in the most heartwarming sense.

    Yes, the movie is corny, but no, it's not dumb. It's clever and insightful in the way it gets away with this story, which is almost a fable.

    You know exactly how this thing is going to turn out before it's even half over.

    Though The Bread, My Sweet is never even a little bit better than this description makes it sound, writer-director Melissa Martin's stagy, unattractive-looking film should at least get credit for going all the way with its manipulation.
  6. Although this "Moonstruck" knockoff is diverting to watch, it's basically a low-budget loaf of Italian-American movie clichés.
  7. 20
    The film would be insufferable if it weren't for the total sincerity and commitment of its players.
