Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Jon Favreau's bouncy paean to the culinary arts wins you over in a stridently upbeat, crowd-pleasing way ...
Fresh: It's a refreshing change of pace from typical summer fare, a story not framed around the skeleton of an old TV series or designed as a tie-in to Hasbro toys.
Fresh: Favreau has assembled a terrific cast for a road trip that is joyous and revelatory, all set to a great soundtrack ...
Fresh: Chef is compelling, somewhat convincing and, according to many who know better than I, it's largely on trend.
Food porn indeed
I seriously had to buy 2 packet of large popcorn just to watch this movie
The food in this movie just doesn't care if your in a diet !!
This was a great movie! Loved every moment, especially when he realizes how the food truck is bringing him closer to his son. Inspired my nephew to go home and start cooking with his dad! Definitely don't see this on an empty stomach, as your tummy will be growling with hunger at the site of all that wonderfully looking food!! YUM!
i loved this movie. not only did they show how important family is. they showed how precious life is and if you cant have fun doing what you love. why do it at all
