Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
So Jon Favreau leaves behind the big budget world of marvel and returns back to his Swingers routes with a low budget script led dramedy and ends up delivering a brilliantly entertaining, witty and heartwarming tale of a man, food and a kid. He also stacks the film with some excellent performances (his own included) as well as a host of fun cameos from the likes of Dustin Hoffman, Oliver Platt and Robert Downey Jnr. Add to that the soundtrack of the year and a film that is never once boring and you have a real return to form for the once Indie director. Charming.
