"Le Chef"

Three star chef, Alexandre Lagarde is confronted by the corporate owner of his restaurant who has big plans to fire him and completely redo his restaurant. Problem is, he can't do it unless he loses one of his Michelin stars. Lagarde ends up hiring a protege who not only worships him, but knows just about every one of his signature dishes, to devise a new menu. The plot is somewhat predictable but it's a fun ride getting to the conclusion. About the only negative is a scene that's very silly and slapsticky, but what do you expect? It's French. From the folks who worship Jerry Lewis. It's not food porn, but provides just enough to satisfy a foodie like me. If you in the market for an evening of fun, check this one out.
4.5 stars out of 5
