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).
Plot: Adam Jones is a Chef who destroyed his career with drugs and diva behavior. He cleans up and returns to London, determined to redeem himself by spearheading a top restaurant that can gain three Michelin stars.

Since I think Bradley Cooper is a good actor and not too hard on the eyes, I decided to go see this for a $6 matinée. It did not disappoint as a distraction. I have read the other reviews that say no real character development and superfluous characters. Maybe. The world of high end cooking is so interesting. Watching them make fabulous meals inspired me to come home and cook something new for dinner. Adam Jones (Bradley Cooper) is a flawed man. Everyone in this film was pretty flawed. I liked the whole cast, and forgot Sienna Miller was in American Sniper with BC until I read it on IMDb tonight. I liked the European and US settings. Not Oscar material but good enough. No blood, no guts, some cursing, lots of ego. If you like Bradley, go see it.
Food and Film can be a powerful mixture. But when you have people like Ramsay involved, inevitably there is a third F word which will be more important the other 2 F words. This is what we get here: a film that panders to the lowest denominator of any cultural expression: competition in the basic sense of “finishing first”, “being the best”. That kind of football mentality that TV food shows have been feeding the public with for the last decade, at least.
This film came out at around the same time as another film about cooking, by Favreau. That was the complete opposite of this. That one was (at least superficially) about not caring for the critics, even running away from them. This one is abound pandering to the them, cooking (and in fact everything in life) as some sort of a run, as some sort of coming first to the end. That’s the Anglo-Saxon way of doing it, which the British and the Americans (but not the Australians!) have been imposing upon us. So our broken Cook gets his second chance by convincing a critic to convince the owner of a restaurant (who incidentally is in love with the cook) to give him the kitchen. And the purpose would be to receive a third Michelin star.
Couple that with a series of relatively common prejudiced clichés: the main character is an American Chef who goes to Paris and out- Frenches the French in their own game. Like when Jamie Oliver goes to Italy to teach the Italians how to cook Italian food, or Ramsay to Thailand to validate Thai food.
After Paris he goes to London and his style is deemed old-fashioned and so his female kitchen (and sentimental) partner brings a couple of plastic bags and gadgets and suddenly he is back on top of the game. Because of course, if you get a couple of new gadgets, your cooking will be suddenly renewed.
Kar-Wai tried an association between food and memory in his “in the mood for love”. Itami tried food and sensuality. Favreau tried Food and passion (fullfillement). These guys instead link food to the lowest form of competition, the one that replaces passion with the need to be recognized, the need to succeed, the one that it’s all about getting there first, out-running the guy next to you. The one that makes an idiot almost jump out of a bridge because he will probably get a bad review the next day. Well, we should thank Ramsay and his other buddies for this attitude.
