    I saw this a week or so ago and enjoyed it...I didn't recall that Jon supplied the knives for the film, but I was surprised by the knives as I watched it! Good on you Jon!

    Looks like another feel good foodies movie like Tortilla Soup. I'll wait until it hits Amazon, but it looks like a fun movie.

    Saw it two weeks ago and it is a really nice "feel good" movie. It's not about cooking it's about relationships and personal growth. I'll say one thing the casting was spot on and it didn't hurt to have Sofia Vergara and Scarlett Johansson in it.

    We were talking to some friends after and one said "Mike you should have a food truck" and my reply was "they don't make enough corn starch"

    I finally checked the film out yesterday. Excellent food cinematography, all the food plating scenes were on point. I really like the scene where the chef opens up his knife roll to reveal all his bad ass knives! I thought overall the dialogue captured alot of authentic kitchen talk, and the dilemmas the chef was going through with his restuarant/family life definitely resonated with me.

    Enjoyed the movie and the scenes in the kitchen. The knives were cool. Final third was a bit schmaltzy heading in for a trite finish. Customers (moviegoers and restaurant patrons) like predictability. All in all worth a rental.

    I just saw the movie two nights ago and enjoyed it, but it was very borderline too happy feel good for me.

    Btw, here is the picture when he unrolled his knife roll.

    This is true… and I'll add the recipe for the cubano featured in the movie.
