Default Foodie Movies

I'm sitting here watching the same movie for the umpteenth time, and it occurs to me I love foodie movies. Here are my 3 favorites (they just came to me, I could probably add to this list):
  • Big Night
  • Julia & Julia
  • Ratatouille

Any other good ones I missed?

Here are two to try, depending on your tastes and sensibilities.

-- Eating Raoul.

-- The Cook, the thief, his wife and her lover.

I have been watching The Trip with Steven Coogan. Quiet, funny film about middle age. He and a friend go on a foodie trip through England.

Oh crap, great movie. Forgot about that one.

For those of you that prefer the odd but strangely numerous genre regarding eating people, try Parents.

Weirdboy, I'll check out the others. Thanks.

This is gonna sound strange but I think Godfather-I was a bit of a foodie movie (assuming you mean movies that foodies find attractive in part for the food ... not just movies about cooking) ... not the main theme, but every few scenes it seemed there was food or drink even if it was only on the table.

Sopranos reruns always lead me to making pasta.

There's one I saw a couple years ago about a woman who kept making up recipes for pies based on her mood or whatever. Some of those pies looked really good, too...


EDIT: Ah it's called Waitress

Is Soylent Green a foodie movie?

It sends me to the fridge every time.
