May Movies: Food Fight

movies-may-food-moviesMovies and food go together like peas and carrots.

We’ve got 5 great flicks that celebrate food and satisfy a craving for a good time.







Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (G, 1971)
Gene Wilder, Jack Albertson

The original and the BEST—and just a little bit creepy. But that’s OK, when you can marvel at Gene Wilder and enjoy a really kickass Veruca Salt.


Big Night (R, 1996)
Stanley Tucci, Tony Shalhoub

Stanley Tucci’s cinematic ode to all things Italian—and then there’s the comedic power of family.


Animal House (R, 1978)
John Belushi, Karen Allen

The best food fight, bar none. It’s one of the best comedies ever made.


Julie & Julia (PG-13, 2009)
Meryl Streep, Amy Adams

What’s a list about foodie movies without Julia Child? We dare you to cook your way through one of her cookbooks.


Bottle Shock (PG-13, 2008)
Alan Rickman, Chris Pine

Professor Snape is a wine snob! Enjoy this wholly underrated flick that’s loosely based on the early days of California winemaking.
