Now Watching: Chef

This is so far, one of my favourite movies for the past year, 2014. The story was good, the actors were excellent and it made my mouth water BIG TIME!

It tells the story of Carl Casper, an acclaimed chef who was criticized by online food critic Ramsey Michel. Carl's son, Percy signed him up on Twitter and using this, Casper sent out an "invite" to Michel (thinking it was a private message) to come back to his restaurant as he will be serving him another menu.

Carl's boss (played by Dustin Hoffman), disagreed on them serving a new menu so Carl left. Not too long after, he went back to the restaurant and had come face to face with Michel. Without his knowing, he was captured on a video that went viral.

Now without a job, he flew to Miami with his ex-wife (played by Sofia Vergara) to bring back an old truck to life. He will be cooking the food, on his own terms since he is his own boss. Together with his son, Percy and his sous chef, Martin they will drive back to Los Angeles and will create a sensation across the country.

For me , this is a 5 star movie. Not only because Dustin Hoffman was here and Robert Downey Jr. too and even Scarlett Johanson but because it tells a story of family and friendship. A must watch!
