“Coming from a big, immigrant Italian family myself, this movie holds a special place in my heart.

The conflict between the two brothers, Primo and Secondo, and their rival, Ian Holm's Pascal (in an over-the-top performance) mirrored the American immigrant experience: does one stick to their heritage, like Secondo, who serves "traditional" Italian fare to a scant clientele, or jump into the melting pot, like Pascal, who "gives the people what they want" - a big, pedestrian, plate of spaghetti and meatballs?

Tony Shalhoub's Primo ends being caught in the middle of this argument, seeing "selling out" as his ticket out of the financial mess his brother's restaurant has become.

Minnie Driver's character, Phyllis, the quintessential "Joisey Girl" was a complete was” read more

" Timpano Is certainly the prime dish in this film. Detailed instructions can be found at "Proud Italian Cook" If your feeling less adventurous there was also a nice omelet featured at the end ;) "

"When their competition promises that Louis Prima will dine at their failing restaurant, two Italian brothers, one an experienced chef, the other a hopeful hard worker, prepare for the big night by perfecting the course and the atmosphere."

"A funny ass, heartfelt food movie that will put anybody watching it in good spirits. FUCK THAT FOOD LOOKS GOOOOOOOOOOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Meal prep. Traditonal Risotto. Staring at the intimidating Timpano. Whole Branzino. Listening to the Tampano. Organic chicken. Carefully cutting into the Tampano. Suckling pig. And finally, Timpano. Celebration. Plus the final 5 minute shot crushes me everytime. Poetic celluloid perfection. "

"Esta película la ví en el marco de las proyecciones de Dirección de Arte para la facultad. Nos reímos un poco por el nombre del director Stanley Tucci, que parecía un hermano berreta de Kubrick, pero nos tapó la boca. Stanley descubriremos que es un conocido actor que nadie ubica de nombre y gran guionista en una comedia a la antigua de esas que no se ven más pero que te dan una risa terrible sin gags pelotudos (Lease Scary movie 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 y 10). El manejo de los silencios"
