I love movies and now that I have started blogging I will be blogging about the movies I watch. My husband has been known not to pick the winners at the Redbox but tonight’s selection was surprisingly entertaining.
The movie starts out somewhat confusing…not in the writing itself but in the fact that you sit and ponder how Jon Favreau lands himself Sofia Vergara as an ex wife and Scarlett Johansson as his current flame. My only answer to that is either A: he must REALLY know how to cook or B: he is hung like large zucchini squash. Or maybe both…in that case…kudos to him. Oh yeah this is the movies not real life.
Job Favreau plays Carl Casper, a chef struggling with his own demons of insecurities about his food after a very popular food blogger comes into the restaurant where he works and blogs negatively about his food. Of course “Carl” is upset over the critic’s blog entry and ends up quitting his current chef position after a heated argument with the restaurant owner. And in what seems to be a case of “things not turning out right” actually becomes a blessing in disguise leading him on a journey through a path of unexpected happiness.
This movie is a great family watch and full of enough humor that I found myself giggling out loud. I give it 4 stars.
