Chef Movie Review


Director: Jon Favreau
Actors: Jon Favreau, John Leguizamo, Emjay Anthony, Scarlett Johansson, Sofia Vergara, Oliver Platt
Ratings: ***1/2 

Reviewing this film should make every critic a bit wary as it raises an important question about the role of a critic- not only in this technologically modern society but also in the life of an artist.

Carl Casper (Favreau) is that artist. He is a chef. He loves his art of cooking. However, his regular menu at the restaurant he cooks for fails to impress a famous food blogger Ramsey Michel (Platt). With little knowledge of how to use Twitter, he, unknowingly, publicly challenges him to visit his food again. And when the critic arrives, he is caught into an embarrassing situation facing the heat from Casper, the artist.
