    Film-Inspired Food Trucks We'd Like To See

    Inspired by the release of Jon Favreau's Chef in movie theatres nationwide, critic Stephen Michael Brown has developed a baker's dozen of film-inspired food trucks worthy of consideration.

    1. Dr. Lecter's Fava Bean Burrito Bandwagon

    Inspired by the adventurous pallette of the diabolical impressario featured in Silence of the Lambs, Hannibal and Red Dragon, exotic choices on this mobile menu include human liver, fava beans and a nice selection of vintage Chiantis. Watch out for Sweetbread Saturdays!

    2. Waitress on Wheels

    Home of the "I Hate My Husband Pie," this food truck features a selection of desserts by Kerri Russell's character from the indie film Waitress (2007) in the spirit of I-baked-my-emotion-into-my-meal movies such as Like Water for Chocolate and Woman on Top. Disclaimer for those expecting traditional pies: Those served in this food truck are in no way associated with the American Pie films, a certain sequence in Stand By Me or an object of Southern hospitality offered by an Oscar winner from The Help.

    3. Vianne's Vroom Vroom Room

    Both Americans and the English have been patient as we awaited Juliette Binoche's return to the cinematic scene, and now she's burst back into the thick of the city like her radiation-seeking monster co-star in Godzilla. But it's her French heroine of Chocolat (2000) serving up forbidden goodies such as chili pepper hot chocolate and other bonbons from her patisserie that makes her such a cause celebre on the foodie scene. This vehicle is truckin' in the tradition of Babette's Feast and other sumptuous delights!

    4. The Cook, The Thief, His Wife and Your Order

    Dame Helen Mirren serves up some anti-Thatcher concoctions while donning frumpy faces and couture fashion in a full re-creation of Peter Greenaway's color-coded Hollandaise restaurant on wheels. Try Mirren's famous cocktail franks, and Michael Gambon will entertain the kiddies with flavored jelly beans and butter beer from his latter-career Harry Potter headmaster.

    5. M'Lynn's Juicemobile

    Available for low blood sugar and high melodrama occasions, you'll like - I mean really like - the juices served up in this steel magnolia of a food truck. If you're really good, we'll trot out the red velvet armadillo cake.

    6. Eat Drink Man Woman Car

    Experience equal parts love and potstickers with a food truck, Ang Lee style! Based on the 1994 vehicle that didn't in fact include a vehicle. Enjoy gourmet lunchboxes and Taiwanese-style clams that will make those ladies in The Joy Luck Club blush with envy.

    11. Toast of the Town Truck

    Have it your way in a food truck inspired by the extraordinarily specific food order or the rebellious Jack Nicholson in 1970's Five Easy Pieces. Your chicken or egg salad sandwich can come on toasted bread - or not. We're flexible.
