- Quick review:
- Jon Favreau stars in -- and wrote and directs -- this bouncy paean to the culinary arts, about a top cook who gets a career-killing bad review, rebounding, and bonding with his son, in a feel-good food truck ride across the states. Sofia Vergara, Scarlett Johansson and John Leguizamo join the fun -- which feels forced-fed at times.
