The cast of Chef is so high-powered that you expect something deep. But while it never gets to those heights, it is a thoroughly entertaining movie, pairing a single dad and his son on a road trip in a taco truck (they actually make Cubanos), and a tender story about love lost and regained — both for cooking and people. Jon Fauvreau, John Leguizamo, Sofia Vergara, Scarlett Johannson (still beauftiful even with black hair), Bobby Cannavale, Robert Downey, Jr. and Dustin Hoffman all are flawless in their roles. Oliver Platt is wonderful as a smarmy food ciritc, and Emjay Anthony, the young boy, is someone to watch.
