Five Best Food Movies: The Help, Willy Wonka, Ratatouille, and More
|Julie & Julia is on the list.|
As movie fiends, we often find ourselves diving into film scripts.
Films usually compel us with their love stories, or their horror, but sometimes, it's the food that makes the movie a little (or a lot) more memorable.
So we've compiled a list of the 5 best food movies. Your favorite may or may not have made our list, but rest assured that you'll be Googling for recipes once we're through.
Let's try, just for a second (we know, it's really tough) to forget how handsome Johnny Depp is in this film. Forgotten? Yeah, we couldn't either. But he's not the only thing in Chocolat that makes it so delicious. Chocolate is pretty much the guilty pleasure of the planet, so it's fairly safe to say that everyone who saw this film found themselves in desperate need of a cocao fix after the first time. The acting is superb. The sets are quaint and lovely. But that
chocolate-covered Depp... chocolate reigns supreme!

4. Julie & Julia
This one is pretty obvious -- but it's obvious for good reason. Julia Child cooked her way into the hearts of Americans with her quirky personality and love for food. Her love turned to our love which turned into many nights' worth of newly inspired dinner recipes. That being said, you know good and well that after watching Julie & Julia for the first time, you went out to buy her book Mastering the Art of French Cooking (that is, if you didn't already have it). Sure, the scenes with aspic grossed you out -- but we all cringed when that raspberry Bavarian cream fell through Julie's paper bag. Such a good waste!
