Chef Movie Reviews
User reviews on Chef
We loved this movie!! All the actors were great. How refreshing to see a movie without a lot of violence, bad language and rough plot. It's great for males and females...and not a 'chick flick'. Go see it and tell your friends!
You only come across a great movie every once in a while, and this is one of them. The story was easy to follow and the inspiring. The split between the Chef life and Family life were evenly distributed, you get to see Jon Favreau’s character as a chef and a dad grow throughout the movie and it’s not shoved in your face. I left the theater knowing that the admission wasn’t wasted on another shoot’em up, slice’em up story that is repeated every week. Jon Favreau has produced and directed another memorable classic to go with “Swingers” “You’re so Money” Thanks.
Loved the movie, and it's just in time for Fathers' Day. It's all about the characters and the father-son relationship. The story is predictable, but I didn't mind that because it felt real. My bottom line is I walked away entertained and feeling good. I hope you see it and enjoy it as much as I did.
I am sad that I, as of now, am the only lover of movies to post a review of this gem. I loved it!
Don't get me wrong, I'm a lover of big explosions and 3D special effects, but I also love the well told story, and that's what this is. Chef is a simple story about a man who loves to cook and lost his way both personally and professionally. Jon Favraeu, of Iron Man directing fame, wrote, directed and stars in this wonderfully uplifting film about reconnecting with the loves in your life. Predicting the outcome of this film was easy, you could see it thirty minutes into the film. The joy is in the journey as our hero loses his job for failing to bow any longer to popular tastes in cooking.
There are plenty of star cameos in this film, including Robert Downey Jr, who drops in to help out in more ways than one.
I hope this one gets a viewing by a wider audience as it deserves it. The script is clever in that there are no villians, only people who see things differently and the tempers that flare when those who have strong opinions clash over what's right versus what's popular.
I left smiling and feeling like my time in the darkened theatre was well spent.
