Alas, good intentions do not always a good movie make.

Film Journal International

For a directorial debut, The Bread, My Sweet shows some promise, but Martin will have to engage her audience more if she wants to make a mark in film.

Newark Star-Ledger

Contrived and clichéd, the dramatic momentum ends long before the movie does.

Dave Kehr
New York Times

Pretty much of a mess, full of narrative gaps and characters who arbitrarily appear and disappear.

Ken Fox
TV Guide

Performances are really what count in a character-driven romantic comedy like this, and each is well above the indie average.

If you're willing to swallow those formulaic plot machinations, you may reasonably enjoy this rough-hewn debut effort, which is far more effective in its quieter, dialogue-heavy moments than when it attempts more ambitious cinematic conceits.

Despite good performances and a warm ambience, this squishy story needed more time in the oven.

Forrest Hartman
Reno Gazette-Journal

Like a Lifetime movie that's a step ahead of its peers, The Bread My Sweet is as gooey and tearful as the title suggests.
