Join Vidiots and Capri Club as we revisit one of our favorite foodie movies of the ’90s—the award-winning Big Night.
This delicious comedy stars Stanley Tucci and Tony Shalhoub as Primo and Secondo, two Italian immigrant brothers who pin their hopes of saving their struggling restaurant on a banquet honoring jazz great Louis Prima. Their plans and perfect menu, however, are quickly complicated by a lovers’ triangle, a sneaky restaurant rival, and the hilarious perfection of chef Primo. After all, sometimes the spaghetti likes to be alone.
Warm, hilarious, and full of heart, this is one tasty treat of a film!
