Chef Adam Jones (Bradley Cooper) had it all - and lost it. 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).Written by
The same shot is used at ~54:40 and then again at ~1:35:10 where the line cooks sit down for the "family dinner". The latter shot has Michel wearing the same outfit even though there are several actor passing in the foreground. Michel is no longer working in the kitchen at this point in the film. See more »
Jean Luc, my mentor - the guy who gave me a chance as a chef - said to me it was God who created oysters and apples. And you can't improve recipes like that. But it is our job to try.

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.
