About the Movie
Journalist and American expatriate Matt Reynolds forsakes a successful life in Eastern Europe, compelled by a singular obsession: Find the world's best Buffalo chicken wing. Joined by his long-suffering Czech girlfriend, a perplexed Slovak film crew, and a ragtag gang of wing-obsessed misfits recruited online, Reynolds embarks on a quest of epic proportions that spans 2,627 miles and 284 varieties of wings. "The Great Chicken Wing Hunt" is a hilarious documentary that proves the lengths one man will go to find perfection. A FilmBuff Presentation.
A Cult Classic In The Making
If you like documentaries that are hilarious and feature an oddball cast, yet still manage to say something important about American culture at large, you will heartily enjoy this film. I can't recommend it enough; just make sure to have a plate (or three) of Buffalo wings on hand, as this film will make you HUNGRY.
I saw the film when it premiered at the Big Apple Film Festival and the atmosphere was electric; I'm pretty sure The Great Chicken Wing Hunt has already begun to amass a cult following and will likely end up continuing to do so.
Bring an appetite!
Plenty of charm, plenty of laughs and some great characters drive this story about my favorite distinctly American cuisine. Lots of nostalgia for me as a former Upstate New Yorker-- after my friends and I saw the movie, we didn't wait for the credits and went straight for the kitchen to try to replicate the winning recipe-- I challenge you not to do the same!
My son chose this as a class assignment in his TV/Video Production class to see a film at the Denver Starz Film Festival. It was funny, entertaining and informative. We can't wait to watch it at home with a big plate of chicken wings :) Highly recommended!
