Critics have panned Burnt, and, after watching it, I can see why. The biggest reason; Bradley Cooper's Adam Jones is an absolute jerk, and I mean Gordon Ramsey, 'I don't give a toss about anyone' kind of jerk. Burnt, which was originally titled Chef, is difficult to watch because its leading character is incredibly unlikeable.
