27 inspired #sundaylunchmovies

What with the recent release of Burnt and Eat Out editor Abigail Donnelly’s food movie night tonight, we’ve had food movies on the brain lately. Coupled with that, this year, the Eat Out Mercedes-Benz Restaurant Awards will for the first time be announced over Sunday lunch – so we’ve had Sunday roasts on our minds too. Yesterday, we challenged our Twitter followers to come up titles for Sunday lunch movies. Here are some of the thoroughly inspired results.
