"Chef" movie quotes tell the story of one professional chef who goes on a culinary journey to find himself and reunite his family. The comedy was written, co-produced and directed by Jon Favreau. After premiering at SXSW on March 7, 2014, "Chef" opened in the US on May 9, 2014.

In "Chef," Carl Casper (Jon Favreau) is moderately happy working as an executive chef for a high end Los Angeles restaurant alongside Martin (John Leguizamo) and Tony (Bobby Cannavale). With an important food critic coming to the restaurant, Carl sees an opportunity to use his creativity and innovation to impress. Instead, restaurant owner Ravi (Dustin Hoffman) forces him to stick to the menu which leads to a quite poor review from the critic.

Following a Twitter war with the critic, Carl leaves his position at the restaurant in favor of opening a food truck where he can, once and for all, be creative genius behind the food. As he travels the country selling his signature dishes, he also works together to piece back his family including son Percy (Emjay Anthony) and ex-wife Inez (Sofia Vergara).

Robert Downey, Jr. and Scarlett Johansson co-star in the comedy which opens alongside "Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return Movie Quotes," "Neighbors," "Belle," "Walk of Shame," "The Amazing Spider-Man 2," "Locke," "Brick Mansions," "The Other Woman," "Transcendence," "A Haunted House 2," "Heaven is for Real," "Draft Day," "Under the Skin," "Dom Hemingway," "Joe," "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," "Sabotage," "Noah," "Blood Ties," the "Veronica Mars" movie, "Need for Speed."
