Chef

Rated R 115 min. 2014

1/2

Highly recommended for dinner-and-a-movie plans, this warm, scrappy, frequently funny movie features the most enticing foodie porn this side of the Cooking Channel. Writer-director Jon Favreau stars as semi-famous L.A. chef Carl Casper, whose career goes haywire when he encounters a vicious food critic (Oliver Platt) and the dark side of social media. Carl embarks on a cross-country road trip in a food truck, along with his neglected 10-year-old son and loyal chef pal (John Leguizamo). Chef follows a familiar recipe—workaholic dad reassesses life—but delivers heartfelt laughs, a casual sense of authenticity and intriguing glimpses into the chef's life. Scarlett Johansson, Dustin Hoffman and Robert Downey. Jr. color in the edges with extended cameos.
