Big Night Reviews
Big Night is the story of two brothers Primo (Shalhoub) and Secondo (Tucci) who -as their names suggest- are passionate about their food. Primo in particular is a brilliant chef, and Secondo a natural entertainer and restaurant manager. However, while Primo values his heritage and roots, Secondo is enamored by the possibility of making it big in America. Their efforts culminate into the eponymous Big Night, which could change their lives forever. What happens till then and afterwards, is a journey you need to gift your palette.
Carried squarely on the shoulders of it's lead actors, Big Night is a true example of the cinema boom of the 90's. When movies were made not with big names but with little ideas and big hearts. A must watch if you're into culinary based movies.
Filled with clever dialogue & fun scenes, this is in many ways at typical film but with some unique twists.
The key part of the film is when they are putting on a dinner for a key celebrity & the food they prepare is utterly mouth watering. It's a nice film with a nice tempo.
