Rarely Indie movies make up the expectations. Most of them suffer the maladies of the corporate ones: making up the deficiencies of a lousy script with outrageous crap instead of good writing and acting.
I took the chance to see the movie just on the fact that Jon Favreau was on it (loved the guy since PCU) The trailer does not make it justice to a feel-good-without-being-mushy film. It is funny, it is “educational” and it will leave you hungry. I was also amazed at the presence of big-ticket stars doing small roles which tells you more about Favreau’s as a person that as a Hollywood power player.
The movie is available in Netflix and in Amazon Instant Video ($2.99 rental and worth it.) No idea if other sites have it.
Please, do not see this movie if you have not eaten. The recipes are available online.
And if you excuse me, I am gonna make me a grilled cheese sandwich now.
PS: I forgot to mention the music…. outstanding.
One thought on “Chef: A nice movie for a change.”
Except that this is the story of the life of Chef Josh “Phillip” Foss, from Chicago. Foss hung out with Favreau one night and told him the story of his life. Favreau turned around and stole his story to make the movie. Foss got fired from the Palmer House for tweeting, then started Meatyballs, then finally opened up El Ideas. This movie pisses me off.
