[Movie Review] Catch Bombshells Sofia Vergara and Scarlett Johansson in CHEF

| |
Hi Huneybees,

Chef is a light-hearted movie about a chef, Carl Casper played by Jon Favreau (Who's also the Writer and Director of the movie), who lost his restaurant job in Los Angeles and then returned to started up a food truck in Miami in an effort to reclaim his creative promise, while piecing back together his estranged family.

Other than being a mini Iron Man reunion, bombshells Scarlett Johansson and Sofia Vergara heats up the movie screen.
The movie rides on the food truck craze in the States and with the strong cast list (Jon Favreau, Scarlett Johansson, Dustin Hoffman, Robert Downey Jr., John Leguizamo, as well as the sexy CoverGirl - Sofía Vergara) , you are in for a "treat".

Well, it all started with a food review by the renowned food critic Ramsey Michel, played by Oilver Platt, which went horribly wrong because of its restaurant owner, Riva played by Dustin Hoffman, insistence of serving the “proven” menu which lacks the creativity that Ramsey was looking for.

While the movie did make the audience hungry during Carl’s detailed food preparation scenes, it was Social Media that took the central stage in this movie. It showcased the power of Social Media – from Twitter, Youtube, Facebook to Vine - and we could all take a note or two from the movie on how it could be navigated to our advantage (and also disadvantage).

In Carl’s case, it was Twitter that first got him into trouble because he assumed that he was sending a “private message” to rap at Ramsey for the humiliation that he felt from Ramsy’s review and then later when he twitted out to Ramsey to an open challenge in an attempt to redeem his sore pride, which he never able to deliver after been fired by Riva.

Just as the audience thought it was bad enough, Carl’s loss of cool later at the restaurant was captured by many and went viral online (Youtube) that essentially sealed his Chef career. His return to reclaim his creative promise by running a food truck (named EL JEFE) was much to the credit of his son, Percy played by Emjay Anthony, who not only helped him as a line chef but more importantly his social media CEO, using platforms like Twitter and Facebook to update the public on the development of EL JEFE across the country.

It was after watching the Vine video of the entire journey of the food truck compiled by his son that marked the starting of Carl’s reversed relationship with his son and his ex-wife, Inez played by Sofia Vergara.
The ending of the movie was a fairy tale with Carl and Ramsey buried their quarrel and becoming partners of the EL JEFE restaurant and what seems to be a re-marriage of Carl and Inez.

Overall the movie was very entertaining but for fans of Scarlett Johansson who played Molly, the hostess at Riva’s restaurant, you will be disappointed as there were not much acting scenes of the Black Widow (although she did wore a low-cut black dress in one of those scenes) and all happened during the first part of the movie!

Chef opens in cinemas 5 June 2014, be sure to catch it while it's hot! ;P
