Jon Favreau‘s Chef (Open Road, 5.9) “is a lot of things — it’s fitting that a road trip movie should be so all over the map — but what it is, most of all, is a celebration of tasty food and the people who make it, and I guess I can get behind that.” — Badass Digest SXSW review by Meredith Borders. I still say there’s a vague element of discomfort in watching a movie about an overweight chef. It’s not a huge stopper. I can get past it. I’m cool. But it is something to get past. If Robert Downey, Jr. had the lead role instead of a cameo, Chef would be a whole different kettle of fish.
