    Last night I picked up "Woman on Top" at Target for $5.99. It's a romantic comedy about a Isabelle, stifled chef who makes her way from Brazil to San Francisco. She eventually makes it "big" as a TV chef. Real good soundtrack with real good Bossanova guitar work throughout. Good laughs for $5.99.

    I love restaurant movies. Dinner Rush and Big night are a couple of my favorites. The scene in Big Night where the chef has prepped all day and they are about to open and he has an espresso and a cigarette. Man I have been in that moment so many times. Any other food movies people recommend?

    This was on tv last night but we came in late so we didn't finish it, I was wondering if it was any good. One of the better food movies I have seen this past year was Mostly Martha. I would highly recommend checking that out if you haven't already.

    I love that movie! When I first saw the title, I thought it was going to be some kind of female dominiant sex position movie - then read the info on it and had to watch. I thought it was great.

    Saw and have Woman on Top, great comedy.
    Dinner Rush was a very good well done movie too.

    Another good resturaunt movie is Simply Irresistible with Sarah Michelle Gellar. She plays a girl who couldn't cook magically turned chef by a mysterious crab. Just in the knick of time to save her mother's resturaunt and in time to meet her soul mate.
