Movie Review: Chef

Such a ymmy positive and cheerful movie!! It’s the kind of movies that makes you feel good after watching it! I think I will watch this again!

Ok, so it’s the story of Chef Carl Casper (Jon Favreau) who was preparing a special menu to this food critic/blogger (Oliver Platt) when the owner of the restaurant (Dustin Hoffman) forced him to use their ten years old very traditional menu. The critic wrote a bad review that got viral on Twitter. When Carl was with his son (Emjay Anthony), he asked him to sign him up for twitter and started a heated tweet battle with the blogger. And from there, Carl’s life changes completely!

It’s so so so fun! It’s playful and just makes you want to just eat a sandwich in a park and listen to music! Just to enjoy!! The way they integrated social media is so fun and the tiny special effects used when the tweets are sent is so so so freaking cute!! And the way that Carl knows nothing about social media and how his son, who’s like 9 or 10 is acting like his social media specialist. It shows how the reality of today is affected by the social media and also how those who are not using it are suffering to be heard.
This whole thing made the movie traditional with a modern twist!

The cast are just amazing and have great chemistry together! The kid is so cute and good in his portray of Carl’s son. Jon Favreau is awesome! He was so funny and really gave the movie the feel it needs to succeed.

The movie is just so colorful and full with music and food. Though there is a lot of pork, but it’s fine, I just imagine I’ll be ordering the chicken sandwich hahahaha. You’ll get what I mean when you watch the movie. Oh! And there’s a road trip!! Shows us such amazing places! I always wanted to go on a road trip and eat from all the famous tiny diners!!

So, just watch it and remember me when you smile ;)!
