Bryan Lienesch93 - It's been a long time since Favreau has not only come out from behind the camera but taken center stage. What a treat!

Le Anne of Tinsel And Tine80 - Scarlett Johansson, who plays Molly a hot hostess (btw, loved her look in the movie, like a 1960's Mod Barbie doll) Molly and Chef Casper (Favreau) have a little thing going on, but instead of showing them having sex, they show him cooking her a mouthwatering garlic and oil type pasta dish as she waits hungrily for it, poised on the bed with one shoulder and a little thigh peeking out of her LBD.
