I feel a little burnt by this one. Bradley Cooper does have a good performance as Adam Jones, a diva in the kitchen. I just don’t love movies like this. I felt like I was watching a reality TV show on the Food Network. It’s also hard to like a character when he’s cursing and breaking plates around a kitchen screaming that things aren’t perfect. The one part I liked about this movie was when he was collecting the other chefs for his kitchen. That part felt like an Ocean’s Eleven movie, getting his band together. There’s a great twist in this movie at one point, I thought it was well played… but otherwise this movie was just fine. Not worth 3 Michelin stars.
