This is a Perfectly Fine Movie. That's a bit of a dig I suppose. I thought the acting was...ok. The story was predictable, the outcome inevitable. But it's such a nice story, and hits all the right notes of whatever you're listening for. More description is not warranted.

I love this movie very much. Can't they make another set of this movie.

Amazing movie! The interesting clash of cultures and gender is further enhanced by the nuanced performances and the brilliant script. At each turn where you think you can guess the plot, the writers place a twist that makes you think all the more about the premise. One of my favorite movies of 2018!

This film initially attempts to paint the strong latina female lead as someone completely uneducated in the japanese culture. It appears to struggle with the massive influence that japanese culture has garnered over the past 20 years. At a later point in the film we are met with the same struggle to paint an adult japanese man, living in Los Angeles as having no knowledge of Mexican culture. Both attempts were poorly executed and I am left unable to suspend my disbelief.

An uncomplicated and predictable foody movie of which a sizeable portion shows food preparation. And yet it is such a good watch.

Heartwarming underdog story; celebrates American multiculturalism. A little corny, predictable writing, but sweet and well acted.

One of the worst movies I've ever seen. The characters were dull, the "competition" looked like a bad re-imagining of the original iron chef show, and dialogue made it difficult to watch without cringing. I honestly can't believe that the critics who rated this "film" were watching the same movie I was. Please don't believe the 4&5 star reviews...

Had no idea what it was about and was plesently surprised.

Many reviews nailed it:

Great movie without violence or CGI or sex


Breaks though ethnic and gender barriers

As a Mexican - American, it was refreshing to see a success story that did not involve drugs or illegal activities. Just a good down to earth, inspiring believable story.
