Audience Reviews for Who Is Killing the Great Chefs of Europe? (Too Many Chefs)
Devilishly amusing, even witty. A crime comedy movie with a balanced approached to each. George Segal and his ex wife reluctantly become detectives trying to solve just whom is murdering the master chefs of Europe. [img]http://t1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQGFoIOZ_zkPAt18wrCn3KgYdrLJFzT5GGzAuHVyQJDQYHMJ1ckqA[/img] George Segal left, Robert Morely center, Bisset right Who Is Killing the Great Chefs of Europe? is a 1978 comedy mystery film starring George Segal, Jacqueline Bisset, and Robert Morley. It is based on the novel Someone is Killing the Great Chefs of Europe by Nan and Ivan Lyons. The chefs are each killed in a manner reflecting their most famous dishes; for example, the lobster chef is drowned (in the book the recipe for each dish is given). Well done in all respects, great cinematography of many tourist spots in Europe. From the start you know you are on a gastronomic trip of caloric proportions!

SEE it all here at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FNL2yGReKsQ&list=PL943CDA52348692B5 Oscar winner Henry Mancini, composer, provides the soundtrack to this one. George Segal, oft times a comedian in film does his usual fine performance as a fast food enteprenuer once married to a master chef herself, Bissett. Veteran actor Robert Morely owns a gastro intellect magazine who is over weight, overly intellectual and overly obscessed with all the chefs of Europe.

George Segal is good as the fast-food man who finds himself be... More ---- As for the whodunit? When the killer was finally revealed I had guessed wrong and enjoyed evey moment. NOTES: 1 Playing a pompous gourmet in this film was Robert Morley who due to the popularity of the character went onto make a series of successful television commercials for Heinz soup.

Who is Killing the Great Chefs of Europe? is a pretty good suspence-comedy from 1978. George Segal is good as the fast-food man who finds himself being a prime suspect for three murders in London, Paris, and Venice. Jacqueline Bisset, as his ex-wife and intended fourth victem, is a better actress here than she is in most of her movies. However, the best performance in the movie is given by Robert Morley, as an obese food critic with an acidic sense of humor. You may be asking me why my grade isn't higher, and I'll tell you why. The movie has a grim way of killing off the chefs that is very graphic and throws the entire movie of balance. However, I usually skip those scenes and the movie becomes better as a whole.
