Storyline

Chef Adam Jones (Bradley Cooper) had it all - and lost it. A two-star Michelin rockstar with the bad habits to match, the former enfant terrible of the Paris restaurant scene did everything different every time out, and only ever cared about the thrill of creating explosions of taste. To land his own kitchen and that third elusive Michelin star though, he'll need the best of the best on his side, including the beautiful Helene (Sienna Miller). Written by Polly_Kat

Goofs

Whenever Adam talks to Michel, he switches to French; it's barely understandable, but at least it's credible, given that Adam's not a native speaker. However, when Adam talks to Jean-Luc's daughter, Anne-Marie, they speak in English, even though she's supposed to be French. When she finally does say a line in French, it's gibberish for French audiences. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Adam Jones: Jean Luc, my mentor - the guy who gave me a chance as a chef - said to me it was God who created oysters and apples. And you can't improve recipes like that. But it is our job to try.
Adam Jones: Being a young chef, I sure as hell tried. I spent ten years cooking in Paris and became head chef of Jean Luc's restaurant. I was good. Some nights I was almost as good as I thought I was. 999,696... 697... At least that's what I'm told. 698... 699... Then I destroyed it all. My devils chased me out ...

Excellent movie, both fun and inspirational.
8 January 2016 | by (Serbia) – See all my reviews

Obviously kids are giving rates on IMDb, so јudge movie by it's IMDb rating is ridiculous.

I personally hope that IMDb will hide its rating, or at last categorize it somehow, because to be able to fully understand some movies you need to fit the criteria, and in this movies case:

A. You are aged over 20 B. You tried to accomplish something in your life C. You cooked at last 100 meals :) D. You are driven by passion in your life

In my humble opinion, Bradly Cooper's acting is awesome, I didn't really expect he can handle such complex personality well, but he nailed it.

The plot and storyline are perfect. I rarely feel so motivated and inspired after a movie. So, my thanks to the director, writers, actors and producers for creating this movies!

Keep up the good work!
