A change of pace from his blockbusters and action films, Jon Favreau directs and stars in this funny comedy-drama about a burnt out culinary maestro who reopens a food truck. Sofia Vergara plays his understanding ex-wife while John Leguizamo plays his comical assistant.

Chef lässt liebevoll solche Werte wie gutes Essen, Freundschaft und Familie hochleben und nicht einmal die Hollywood Diven Sofia Vergara und Scarlett Johansson (mit Pony und Hipster Tattoos) können uns ablenken von einem Cuban Sandwich mit frischem Schinken... mehr auf cinegeek.de

Best you eat before watching this tasty movie

"You're never going to be happy cooking for someone else."

If there's one thing I really hate, it's those countless cooking television shows (and variations) we get on our plate (how appropriate) recent years. They even founded television channels like "24 Kitchen" and "Njam" where you can view cooking 24 hours a day. How is it possible.

"I may not do everything great in my life, but I'm good at this. I manage to touch people's lives with what I do and I want to share this with you." Surprisingly funny and touching, this Jon Favreau's flick could be one of his finest in terms of storytelling, cinematography and acting. The supports we're solid like Downey's rich and suave ex husband, the critical Oliver Platt, Leguizamo's enthusiastic sidekick character and even the bossy Hoffman. It encompasses fatherhood, a broken marriage, entrepreneurship, advantages of technology and even the sensitivity of the person whose negative blogs and Twitter wars have targeted. It's too bad there was not much detail of the Chef's wife's occupation and the restaurant he first worked for, nevertheless, this was a tasty treat from Favreau's …

First of this has some great music in this movie. its a feel good nice movie that is very likeable.
about a chef who works in a resturant and is not allowed to do the menu he wants which leads to a online critic attacking his skills. knowing nothing of the internet and twitter he responds which leads to him loosing his job . meanwhile his young son is trying to get close to him but he is always saying he is to busy.
iI wouldn't really call this a comedy but it is a very nice movie. not too sentimential or silly or comedic or any of that , just enjoyable from start to finish. if you want to watch something nice which should make you feel good then this is the movie for you.
one of the nicest films ive seen for a long while. along with grand budapest hotel its a pleasure to watch
