While I was a little skeptical I usually enjoy John Favreau and the supporting cast are some favorites too. Robert Downey Jr, John Leguizamo, Scarlett Johansson and Sofia Vergara all play part that they are well suited for and the kid, played by Emjay Anthonty was a perfect fit.

Favreau also directs this movie, which I think he does a great job capturing the busy hustle and bustle of the “kitchen” life of restaurants. While parts of the movie are very predictable, he does a very good job showing how it is possible, no matter what your age is, to recapture both love for what you do for a living and for your family.

If you are looking for a feel good movie to watch with the family, I would suggest Chef, especially if you are a fan of Favreau!

If you ARE a fan of Favreau I would also suggest Very Bad Things, maybe I will watch it again soon and review it, but check it out!
