It used to be that eating food was the reason Americans went out to dinner. Now, for many, dining out is all about who’s in the kitchen. Carl Casper (John Favreau) is one such celebrity chef, whose career and family life are in a shambles. To reclaim both, he and an old pal (John Leguizamo) and the chef’s young son (Emjay Anthony) take on the latest craze in fine dining: a food truck. This well received film also stars Scarlett Johansson, Dustin Hoffman, Oliver Platt, Robert Downey Jr. and Amy Sedaris.  $29.98 on DVD, $34.98 in Blu-ray/DVD combination.
