Chef - J. Favreau 2014

35% is pure food porn (you know; close-ups on vegetables being chopped, onions sizzling in a pan, focused chef creating innovative cuisine, colourful fruit, original ways to cook meat...).

The remaining 65% form a rather basic story, the bottom question of which is 'food truck or no food truck?' 
Although the poster might be something of a spoiler there, you have to admit this is an issue not that many main characters have faced before. Problem is, I found it hard to consider as any sort of real problem.

The Bechdel-test is nowhere near being passed, but apart from that I suppose this was an OK feelgood movie. (Though if that is what you are after, I warmly recommend 'Pride' instead.)
