Film Friday: Chef
Plot: Jon Favreau (who also writes and directs) stars as a chef whose creativity in the kitchen is being stifled at the restaurant he works at. After receiving a less than enthusiastic review from a top restaurant critic he decides to get his own back by opening up his own food truck.
Guest appearances: Quite a few familiar faces pop up including Dustin Hoffman (who doesn't really seem to suit his role as the grumpy restaurant owner), Scarlett Johansson and Robert Downey Junior who plays Favreau's ex-wife's ex-husband.. if that makes sense.
Watch this if you're a fan of.. yummy food. The Cuban sandwiches will have you drooling. This is a film where nothing bad really happens, it's funny and sweet.. and has a heck of a lot of Twitter references.
Overall: I'd give this film a 7/10 - I enjoyed it but the ending fell a bit flat for me.. however watching all the food being prepared did inspire me to be a little more creative with meals!
