Cute little movie about an overly creative chef who tries to express himself and his art.
It’s a fine movie, but nothing really to it. It’s pretty predictable and obvious where it’s going. The performances were good, especially Jon Favreau, who mostly is known for directing the first two Iron Man movies. But he did a really awesome job as an actor + it seems like he is a great cook in real life! Man, the food in this movie looks delicious!
Besides him, there are performances by Sofia Vergara, Scarlett Johansson and Robert Downey Jr. and Dustin Hoffmann a.o.
Best thing about this movie, besides the food, is the social media aspect that plays a huge role in the story. It’s fun to see how the main character learns how to use Twitter and the funny plot points this creates throughout the movie.
There is nothing really bad to say about the movie, it’s just really obvious, but still a fun time, especially if you like to cook yourself and if you are an artist in general.
