Why didn't he keep a few of the most popular items on the menu and also offer a handful of new items like any real restaurant would do?
Personal favorite Pixar movie, legitimately good movie about cuisine.
Parts of Chef are pretty based.
Not yet. Is it any good?
1) Why did he blow up at the critic? When he argued with his boss about not being able to change the menu, when he knew he's doing the same food from years ago, and it looks like food from Chilis (especially the lava cake).
2) The cuban sandwich meat recipe was NOT HIS, it was from his sous chef, Johnny Legs' character. That makes his redemption story empty. It wasn't his cooking that brought him back, it was his sous chef.
3) Even if the food truck food was his cooking ... how did it suddenly translate to success in the restaurant business? With food completely unrelated to Cuban food?
It was more about him rediscovering why he liked cooking (because it's such a creative art when your boss doesn't force you to cook food from 1992), while also realizing what's important in life, like spending time with your son, and John Leguizamo.
It's not that great of a movie, but it's pretty comfy and most of the food scenes are are almost pornographic.
The main meat recipe not being his own always boggled my mind though, seeing as how he's supposed to be the genius chef and all.
yeah its hot fucking garbage, he shucks a million oysters in the beginning as pennance for being a user while he was the head chef of a 2 star.
if you shucked 500 oysters a day with no breaks it'd take you over 5 years to do that, and at least 3 kitchens get destroyed by buttmad rampaging chefs in the movie.
Everyone is way too suave and not one talks like an actual cook talks, plus theres no fucking immigrants working in the kitchen at all, everything is way too clean and most of the food in the movie looks like pretentious shit.
Plus everyones too attractive, no scars, no guts, no baggy eyes, its bullshit.
And further more they make the practice of sous-viding shit seem like some holy miracle from heaven that saves the day, with an immersion circ that looks like its made of fucking chrome, none of this movie makes sense how a restaurant runs.
I could go on for an hour on this shit, its such a dumb movie. At least that dumb john favreu one had some kind of realistic moments despite it probably being a bored passion project.
The difference is that shills bring it up in the first place with a top post. People that aren't shills answer questions properly and if some company or specific restaurant is mentioned then it's in conversation.
When I first saw Chef I thought it was ok. The more I think about it the more I fucking hate this movie. What little conflict there was felt completely manufactured. The food scenes were good, but they were all in like the first five minutes of the movie and then there were none after that. We didn't even get any shots of this supposedly amazing sandwich. It's also fucking laughable how they just happen to find good parking and zero competition in whatever major city they decide to go to. And everything just gets wrapped up all nice and neat in the end. Trash.
I think because it's a movie. Some other things that wouldn't have happened in real life:
>someone who looks like sophia vergara would never have a child with someone who looks like john favreau
>someone who looks like scarlett johannson would never sleep with someone who looks like john favreau
>no one would pretend being a chef is really in any way interesting
>food is nice, but it isn't sophisticated; it's base gluttony despite any attempt to mythologize it
holy fuck. you actually sound like a real chef. unlike all the other /cucks/ here
