Big city lawyer Hank Palmer returns to his childhood home where his father, the town's judge, is suspected of murder. Hank sets out to discover the truth and, along the way, reconnects with his estranged family.
Robert Downey Jr.,
When their father passes away, four grown siblings are forced to return to their childhood home and live under the same roof together for a week, along with their over-sharing mother and an assortment of spouses, exes and might-have-beens.
Two struggling pals dress as police officers for a costume party and become neighborhood sensations. But when these newly-minted "heroes" get tangled in a real life web of mobsters and dirty detectives, they must put their fake badges on the line.
Carl Casper is an acclaimed chef with a family life that seems as decaying as his artistic freedom. Those frustrations boil over into a raucous viral-videoed public confrontation against a restaurant critic who panned his cooking of food that his boss ordered him to make against his instincts. Now with his career ruined, Carl's ex-wife offers an unorthodox solution in Miami: refit an old food truck to offer quality cooking on his own terms. Now with his young son, Percy, and old colleague, Martin, helping, Carl takes a working trip across America with that truck to rediscover his gastronomic passion. With Percy's tech savvy and Martin's enthusiasm, Carl finds that he is creating a traveling sensation on the way home. In doing so, Carl discovers he is serving up more than simply food, but also a deeper connection with his life and his family that is truly delicious in its own way. Written by

Whenever I watch films connected to the food I make trips to the fridge while pausing the film. This film was no exception. I probably gained couple of pounds while watching this film.
I liked this film. It is cute. Plot is cute, actors are cute, it simply is just that cute, relaxing comedy, family film. After a while I really wanted to eat some of the food from the film, but I guess it was really not possible even with all the social media in the world available, food you can not transfer long distance.
I recommend this film, it will relax you and make you smile.
P.S. Dustin Hoffman sucks in a role of a bad guy, but anything he acts is outstanding. So even this small role fits him.
