An amusing soufflť of a comedy that pokes fun at foodies while honoring the art of those who cook for them.
It's meant to be a soufflť-light charmer, but the bland, predictable French comedy Le Chef basically falls flat.
It's definitely not love at first sight for this odd couple, which makes for good laughs, but their love of food and life enables them to find the right mix of ingredients for a very funny movie.
If you laugh, Le Chef is working. If you cringe, it's best to walk out and request a refund.
A cinematic meal that goes down fairly easily, but isn't tasty enough to be memorable.
As insubstantial and flavorless as one of the newfangled molecular dishes that Lagarde so vehemently despises.
Le Chef isn't breaking any cinematic barriers here, but sometimes leaving the theatre with a smile on your face is haut satisfaction enough.
I'd love just about any truly toothsome comedy about French cuisine that convinces, but in this case, I'll go American and say Jon Favreau's Chef does a far finer job with everything on the menu.
Very light French foodie comedy, seasoned with a touch of romance, that never quite boils over into farce.
This is a charming comedy enhanced by a gorgeous woman, RaphaŽlle Agogue. MichaŽl Young's scene as a geisha is a tour-de-force worth the price of admission.
Audiences looking to enhance their cinematic diet with new and exciting flavors should look elsewhere.
Le Chef is more like Portuguese Vinho Verde - very light, making frivolity its main asset.
