Not sure how they decided the "all-time best" food movies (and there are some good ones there), but I'll add a few more that deserve attention. Smaller independents that are easily overlooked:

The Feast of the Seven Fishes
The Hundred Foot Journey
The Cook, the Thief, His Wife & Her Lover (it's rated X)

If you're a fan, Helen Mirren stars in the last two. . .

To be accurate, your primary line regarding the pet food industry link should read 201 dogs.

Just because it is a lab doesn't mean it shouldn't be counted.
ALL dogs are agents of the heavens.

Not chihuahuas, but all other dogs.

I'm surprised that I've seen more than half of the food movies they mentioned. Some of them are among my favorite films, and some were meh, but I've seen a lot of food movies. What does that say about me?
