Reviews about The Great Wing Chicken Hunt

The Great Wing Chicken Hunt
Robert J. Nunemaker
Entertaining, but just OK

OK, but too much personal stuff and not enough technical decisioning about the wings encountered. Also, the wings they selected, while good, are no where near the best I've tasted. I've had better at a dozen joints.

This movie is awesome!

I cried out of joy at some points even. It's funny, inspirational, and we made chicken wings right after we watched it, because, you know, we had to. Definitely check this out.

Great movie for foodies

This is an indie flick about searching for the perfect buffalo wing. Anyone living overseas can understand that there are just certain foods you cannot get while over there; wings are certainly one of those foods.The hunt covers the NY state area known for wings and they do a great job describing the food and making it enjoyable for the viewer. I would also recommend movies by George Motz, "Hamburger America" is one of my favorites.

The quintessential hunger for food from home

Years ago a friend of mine from Europe, commented that the US had no culinary home food, recognized country-wide. I thought of McDonalds and how a co-worker traveling to Japan practically lived there, but that is not exactly home cooked food.. I also thought of Southern cooking, New Orleans fare and the stews and sausage of Northern NY, but not a specific food, that was nationwide. However this movie reminds me that Chicken Wings are a US invention and I can’t imagine a service-man overseas that might not hanker for them as this journalist did.So yes this is a universal home food. You can find ...
