Movie Info

Only in a made-for-TV comedy would the owners of a fancy restaurant be out of town on the establishment's opening night. Thanks to an unforeseen mishap, Mr. and Mrs. Korda (John Larroquette, Lesley Ann Warren) are nowhere to be found when their eatery is scheduled to open its doors. It falls to the Korda children -- Rebecca (Margo Harshman), Sam (Andrew Allen), and Max (Andrew Allen) -- to hold down the fort in their parents' absence. Naturally, the big night is full of craziness, exacerbated by temperamental employees, snobbish customers, and a couple of unforeseen flies in the ointment. Recipe for Disaster made its first PAX network appearance on May 16, 2003.

About the only element in the film that might appeal to viewers past puberty is Larroquette's performance, which is expectedly enjoyable.

Audience Reviews for Recipe for Disaster

This is one light hearted comedy that Disney should have picked up but MGM didn't do too bad in bringing to the young families out there in need of a clean simple responsible comedy. See it if you are that type of that type of mood.
