Audience Reviews for The Linguini Incident


This one was quite interesting. For a movie released in the early 90's, it had quite an 80's feel to it. Rosanna Arquette is great in this as a disgruntled waitress who really strives to be an escape artist, as is David Bowie as gambler on the run. Quite surreal in places, it actually turns out as quite a sweet movie in the end.

I just adore this movie. There's something about it that I just love. lol. It's not the funniest movie ever, but it's different and I think it's definitely an original.
