Nominate your favourite Food and or Drink themed movie seen in the last 5 years?
I am a big fan of the intoxicating comedy "SIDEWAYS" about a washed up actor and writer who take a climactic, life examining road trip through the Central Coast wine region of California. Nominated for 5 Academy Awards and winner of BEST COMEDY of 2004
oh, frugle one, we've got ourselves a semantics issue here.
for films RELEASED in the last 5 years, sideways just about covers the good ones for me. actually, that and "supersize me."
ratatouille was pretty mediocre. haven't seen "mostly martha" or "no reservations" yet, and planning to watch "waitress" this weekend...that one could conceivably make the list.
but if we talk about movies we've SEEN in the past 5 years, that's a whole different ball game because we can include ones that were released anytime.
eat drink man woman
like water for chocolate
charlie & the chocolate factory [the original]
fried green tomatoes
gotta love loopholes :)
I actually liked "Last Holiday." It wasn't fantastic, but I enjoyed it. (Especially the food parts.)
Of course, I must agree with
Like Water for Chocolate
Fired Green Tomatoes
And, to take the original question a little far, I've always loved "The Breakfast Club."
Does anyone know exactly what Ally Sheedy puts in those sandwiches? They're just so crunchy!
Also, I want to see "Babette's Feast."
Some people think that "Tom Jones" belongs in the food category, but that scene always made me feel ill.
Realistically, I'd watch a bad movie if it centered around food, and enjoy it. ('Simply Irresistable." Case in point.)
