A Review Of @ChefTheFilm

I watched a movie this weekend.  That isn’t unusual.  We watch a lot of movies.  This one, though, surprised us.  It was called Chef.

Chef was written, produced, and directed by and also starred Jon Favreau.  You might recognize him from directing Elf, Iron Man and Iron Man 2.  He also plays Iron Man’s pal and bodyguard, Happy Hogan.

Chef is the story of, duh, chef named Carl Casper who was once an up and coming hotshot in the food world.  He cooks the same food night in and night out while wanting to create masterpieces.  When a food critic gives him a bad review for being boring, he loses it, as well as his job.

From there he gains a food truck and drives across the country reestablishing his relationship with his son.  He gains a following and creates the kind of food he wants along the way.

What really stood out in this movie was that it was a great picture of a man who wanted to follow his passion.  He felt the tension between working a day job and pursuing his dream job.  It quickly became one of my favorite movies.  Period.

Don’t watch this movie with children.  It contained language unsuitable for kids.

Have you seen the movie Chef?

    That’s funny because we watched it this weekend as well. I liked it a lot. I really liked how it was a story about a father and son. That is so rare. I thought it was a great film as well.

    Totally agree with your assessment. I smiled throughout the whole movie.
