Jon Favreau (writer, director and producer) leads a hilarious all-star cast including Sofía Vergara, Scarlett Johansson, John Leguizamo, Bobby Cannavale, Dustin Hoffman, Oliver Platt, Robert Downey Jr. and young actor Emjay Anthony in this deliciously entertaining comedy about starting from scratch. When gifted chef Carl Casper (Favreau) suddenly quits his demanding job at a trendy LA restaurant, he’s on his own to pick up the pieces of his once promising career. Finding himself in Miami, he decides to team up with his successful ex-wife (Vergara), best friend (Leguizamo) and son (Anthony) to launch a no-frills food truck business. Taking to the road, Carl reignites his passion for the kitchen and, along the way, discovers a renewed zest for life and love.

Salty comedy about food and fatherhood is made with love.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Chef, starring Jon Favreau (who also wrote and directed the movie) is a fantastic comedy about food, family, and one man's flawed but abiding love for both. The main content issue is salty language ("f--k," "s--t," and more), with one character swearing in front of his young son and an expletive-filled rant being caught on video and posted on YouTube/other websites. There are also some sexual references, kissing, and a woman shown waiting in bed for her lover (no nudity). Adults drink and smoke both marijuana and cigarettes. Technology plays a prominent role in the storyline, along with the attendant product placement. The movie's core message is clearly positive -- be true to yourself and your work -- but beware if you're on a diet: There are plenty of mouth-watering scenes set in the kitchen.
