Chef

Comedy


 

A chef who loses his restaurant job starts up a food truck in an effort to reclaim his creative promise, while piecing back together his estranged family.

Don't see "Chef" on an empty stomach, the food on the screen is mouth-watering, and will have stomachs rumbling. Interestingly, this is a movie as much about social media as it is food trucks. Mix troubled relationships between friends with a road trip, and there are no prizes for guessing what's served up. It is a feel good film though, and what the story lacks in flair it makes up with fun. Flavoursome but formulaic.
