Reviews for this film from our members:
José Arce @ LaButaca.net [Spanish]
Excerpt: Estupenda fábula con la que Jon Favreau deconstruye su carrera comercial para apostar por la sencillez artística y comercial. Gran reparto para una película fluida, honesta y natural, que aboga por comerse la vida centrándose en lo que realmente importa.
Chris Barsanti @ Film Racket
Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat @ SpiritualityandPractice.com
Excerpt: An appealing comedy about food, career transitions, and the bonding between a busy father and his 10-year-old son.
Bill Clark @ From The Balcony
Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
Excerpt: While “Chef” is bound to formula with its father-and-son-bonding, rising-from-the-ashes road trip tale, Favreau is in complete command, creating comfort food seasoned by a master chef.
Carlos del Río @ El rincón de Carlos del Río [Spanish]
Excerpt: Increíble, pero muy simpática.
Billy Donnelly @ This Is Infamous
Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies
Excerpt: Chef tells a very familiar story, but it does so with wit, an attention to its characters, and plenty of compassion.
Susan Granger @ www.susangranger.com
Excerpt: A scucculent, sweetly simmering amusement….
Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews
Excerpt: Chef is clearly a personal project. Certainly making a living doing what you genuinely love, but also placing an emphasis on things that matter like family.
Blake Howard @ Graffiti with Punctuation
Excerpt: While Chef doesn’t totally reach the heights of Favreau’s best work, it bursts with passion.
MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
Excerpt: Jon Favreau’s midlife artistic crisis rendered as food porn. This is funny, poignant, and wise, though the wish-fulfillment romantic fantasy of it is a tad much to take.
Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
Excerpt: At the risk of sounding like a pun machine, “Chef” is a tasty, enormously likable concoction that’ll leave you satisfied, overjoyed, and craving some hot-and-ready take-out upon exiting the theater.
Piers Marchant @ arkansas democrat-gazette
Brent McKnight @ Beyond Hollywood
Excerpt: ‘Chef’ may be light fluff, but it’s light fluff of the highest order. Simon MIraudo @ Quickflix
Pat Mullen @ Cinemablographer
Excerpt: 2014 is shaping up to be a great year for food on film!
Jamie S. Rich @ DVD Talk
Excerpt: Some may resist Favreau’s slick way with things, but I found Chef to be so finely prepared, I walked away happy and satisfied.
