Jon Favreau has a film titled Chef which is opening in limited release today. It won't be showing in Phoenix/Scottsdale for another week or so. Right now, the Rotten Tomatoes score is holding at 88%. Here's the trailer. I like a lot of Favreau's work, so, I am curious about this film and will go see it as soon as I can. Just wondering if anyone has seen it yet, and how accurately the cooking life is portrayed.

Jeez, chezcherie!  I did that last September and I'm still not in the best shape!  Take care of yourself and do your therapy!  So sorry this happened to you!

 

 

We saw it tonight and liked it a lot.  It was a private screening - a food bank fund raiser - with lots of area restaurant/food/media types and it got lots of laughs and drooly sounds at all the right moments.

I saw it last week with a friend and loved it! It's not designed to be a challenging movie but it's got heart.
