    Excellent movie, but make sure you have food with or near you while watching. You don't want to watch this movie hungry. Trust me!!

    Amazing movie, combination of great storyline, great cast, loved every aspect of it. Went to a good place, and you enjoyed the ride even though you had an idea sometimes of where the plot was going. Well done. Very well done.

    A very easy to watch feel-good comedy that does not feel stale. A great watch for foodies.

    What a fun movie. Favreau, who wrote, directed and starred in this film, has created a feel good movie with a soulful main course surrounded by tasty little side dishes. This film goes along very smoothly, with laughs and enjoyment integrated along the runtime nicely. The performances are perfect for this movie, with Favreau bringing plenty of friends to perform in this picture. It's a good hearted and nourishing movie. Whilst the story will feel uneventful to some and the romantic angle is sometimes hard to believe, there is enough to enjoy here. A word of caution to keep snacks close by because this movie has a hell of a lot of food porn.

    I would believe a kid could get bitten by a radioactive spider and get superpowers before I'd believe someone that looks like Favreau was ever married to Sofia Vergara

    As a food show junkie, I waited way too long to watch "Chef," a film which mixes family, entrepreneurship, and our love of terrific cooking to create an immensely enjoyable film about staying true to our dreams. The terrific Jon Favreau is the frustrated chef at an upscale restaurant; while being an absentee father to his young son, he's forced to churn out too-traditional food by conservative and unflinching boss Dustin Hoffman. Ex-wife Sophia Vergara finally convinces him to create his own destiny, and hooks up Favreau's character with her first ex-husband (played hilariously by Robert Downey Jr.), who gifts Favreau a shambles of a food truck. Favreau's character and his son journey cross-country in it, and that's where "Chef" takes flight, further cementing Favreau as a great hybrid actor-writer of any era. The always-charming Vergara is immensely so here, and both are supported by a cast improbably loaded with some of the greats of our generation delivering typically grand performances (in addition to Downey Jr., John Leguizamo and Scarlett Johansson also share screen time). Ultimately, "Chef" is a wonderfully entertaining film; an engrossing, endearing, and moving reminder to chase down our dreams and (re)focus on family.

    It's a hilariously, somewhat painfully awkward film...but that awkwardness holds a ton of charm!
