Well, I did it. Sunday morning, I awoke at the crack of 10 AM and prepared my body for the hell it was about to go through. Fighting COVID has taken it out of me, but nothing could have prepared me for the 15 minutes I was about to endure watching The Lifetime Network. I am not sure if it is due to a fever or the fact that I watched that abysmal Grinch musical on NBC, but Recipe for Seduction left me at least tasting 7 Herbs and Spices.
As many of you are aware, KFC sponsored a mini movie and I had no idea what to expect. I could not decide if Mario Lopez’s career hit rock bottom or is starting to peak. But I turned on this movie expecting the worst.
The story is set at the holidays and features a young woman, rich, but she did not love the man her mother chose for her. Instead, she fell in love with the new chef, a young beefy hunk who has a secret recipe to make finger licking fried chicken. If the young woman does not marry the man her mom chose, the family could lose everything. What will win, Love or money or chicken?
The story was kind of predictable, over the top, and fun. It was exactly what you thought it would be. I am still slightly disappointed that Mario Lopez did not have a southern accent, but I digress. And the one thing I was not expecting is the set up for a possible sequel. Could we be getting more KFC mini movies in our future? I kind of hope so.
If you get a chance to watch this, do so. It is only 15 minutes and a good way to escape real life. I did not eat KFC while watching, I did however eat Popeyes.
