Chef is not an extraordinary film by any means. Its plot is fairly conventional and predictable and doesn’t dig much deep than the surface. So what makes it such a joy to watch? Thanks to the nimble directing and sweet-hearted writing of star Jon Favreau, as well as his fantastic cast, Chef leaps the barrier from average entertainment to a simple yet lovely, extremely feel-good film about family, and doing what you love to do. Not to mention the food looks just delicious!
