This seems to be a semi-serious fusion of the ideas of Macbeth proper and those of Scotland, PA (down to the point of having the chief character named “Joe Macbeth”. Like the latter, it is set in a kitchen; here, however, chef Joe is a serious cook striving for distinction in the cutthroat world of haute cuisine. It’s less serious than the original play, but it’s not really funny either: on the whole, it seems a bit lost as to what its level will be. Even so, it manages to elicit a few interesting perspectives on Macbeth. There are also a few interesting views into the world of high-pressure restaurant management and cooking. Some may be amused to find the title character played by James McAvoy, who also appeared as Mr. Tumnus in The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. The roles are remarkably dissimilar.

Some R-rated language; definitely not for general family viewing.
