I feel like it's unfair to review this because I'm getting tired of Bradley Cooper. But thank goodness it was about food. And you can't go wrong with the ever mesmerizing kitchen art, and a few dramas of life. Cooper might have overdone it. I also thought Sienna Miller's character's story could have had a better exposure. She's an important character, yet we know little about her. Regardless this was fun to watch.
I wish I could give this film a higher rating, considering how much dedication the director and cast bring to it, including another impressive performance from Bradley Cooper. But, oh, does this script have problems! The dialogue is weak, the basic story has been done to death, and it has too many subplots that all come to easily predictable conclusions.
Disappointing. Would have been much more enjoyable had it not been for the awkward script which even not a strong cast could rescue. It all seemed very confused, feeling like neither a comedy nor serious drama. Tonally it was all over the place.
I would've given this movie a higher rating because I enjoyed it a lot. The cast delivered great performances and a job well done by the production designers. I love the direction & the cinematography too. But, there are so many plot holes. It started off really fast & the last half of the movie is so predictable, don't you think? I actually would've loved it if the last half of the movie's done a different way.
