I can admittedly say, if I was watching Chef on DVD, I would have turned it off within the first 45 minutes. But since I was a captured audience in the movie theater, I sat through the whole thing.

The final result was very satisfying. Chef is a feel good story with no great consequence. Jon Favreau is writer/director/star in an homage to chefís and cooking and self discovery.

I didnít like the first half because a lot of it had to do with twitter and Facebook and social networks. I really didnít understand some of the implications. The first half hour also looks exactly like a cooking show. Way to many long detailed shots of making food.  I also didnít buy into he was once married to Sofia Vergara, and that lost some believability in the simple story of honorable chef figuring out what makes him happy.

Loved the cast with Dustin Hoffman, Oliver Platt, John Leguizamo (always love John), Scarlett Johansen and Emjay Anthony is a great find as the Jonís son.

In the end, I walked away happy. I think most people will like Chef.
