Shallow and not very good
The main problems with the Sexy Chef is that the production values are pretty low, the story is contrived, shallow, and thin as paper, the characters are all severely under-developed and it just isn't that interesting. That said, there are some good things about it too such as the actors (especially Todd Robinson in the role of Tank), the music, and the city of Portland as the perfect backdrop to this story about a group of misfits. This film shows potential but it obviously isn't what it could or should be mainly in part to the writing, direction and lack of attention to detail in the production. While this film is not entirely a failure and it has some funny and enjoyable moments it is disappointing that it isn't better.
