The film was shoot in English and French simultaneously. In the French version Jason Lee recited his dialogues in French when he arrive to France, and just few of his lines were keep in English. The rest of the French cast spoke in French with just a few lines in English. In the English version Jason Lee spoke always in English with just a few lines and words in French. Eddy Mitchell, Irène Jacob, Isabelle Petit-Jacques and Sylvie Loeillet did alternate takes in English. A few takes were kept with the actors speaking on their native languages and later dubbed in French or English. See more »
this pleasant-enough comedy is mostly an excuse for a detailed glimpse into the world of gourmet cooking. the formulaic plot concerns an aspiring american who goes to work for a famous temperamental french chef. he ends up loved by the chef and marrying the chef's daughter. nothing special here. however, if you're interested in becoming a chef de cuisine or just curious about what goes on in the kitchens of the world's best restaurants, you'll find it fascinating. plus, there's a lot of gourmet food to drool over. especially memorable is one shot: the chef prepares to release onto the world the first dish that he invented and added to the menu himself. the camera takes the dish's pov, as the waiter carries the plate out of the kitchen, the proud cook & his loving spouse hold hands and gaze like two parents sending their only son into battle!
