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.
What an amazing movie! The cast was perfect to go right along with the fantastic story line! Bravo I will own this movie forever
Family night and we were looking for a movie to watch we decided to watch this and loved it!! My family loves to cook and I aspire to hopefully open a bakery one day. This movie helped me realize something's that I'll have to be willing to deal with! Worth the watch!!
Any positive reviews about this movie are a complete mystery to me....what a lazy attempt at making a comedy.
