I delighted in the food catastrophe when I was a kid!
Walt: “Can I come back for seconds?”
I forgot about the Ramen Girl . With the late great Brittany Murphy. Just started the movie.
Not a good scene but a whole film.
It is playing in Boston now. I gotta see it.
We forgot until now, in spite of having enjoyed stepping foot into the joint before all the ownership changes and fading from view.
Double vodka. And for the lady . . . Dubonnet with a twist:
“I’ll have what she’s having.” Hands down. No contest.
A friend of mine had a dinner party around this movie. everyone was tasked to bring their own creative dish and the movie was broken up into scenes for the courses.
Some of the greats have been mentioned. Thought about These
BeetleJuice - Day-O
My Big Fat Greek Wedding 'What do you mean he don’t eat meat?" “Thats Okay I make Lamb!”
and Home for the Holidays
Peeling potatoes, Family and a Bundt cake. From My Big Fat Greek Wedding.
Not much to pick from on YouTube for another great food scene movie - What’s Cooking? Four different families. Asian, African American, Jewish and Mexican. Fantastic Thanksgiving food prep scenes. Lots of family drama. This movie has it all. Here’s the trailer:
Home for the Holidays … extremely underrated movie IMO
This reminds me of a funny bit in Everything Is Illuminated:
Jonathan: I’m a vegetarian.
Alex: You’re a what?
Jonathan: I don’t eat meat.
Alex: How can you not eat meat?
Jonathan: I just don’t.
Alex: [to Grandfather, in Russian] He says he does not eat meat.
Grandfather: [to Alex, in Russian] What?
Alex: No meat?
Jonathan: No meat.
Alex: And what about the sausage?
Jonathan: No, no sausage, no meat!
Alex: [to Grandfather, in Russian] He says he does not eat any meat.
Grandfather: [to Alex, in Russian] Not even sausage?
Alex: [to Grandfather, in Russian] I know!
Grandfather: [to Alex, in Russian] What is wrong with him?
Alex: What is wrong with you?
Jonathan: Nothing, I just don’t eat meat!
Alex: My grandfather informs me that is not possible.
You don’t have to choose:
The Help ~ Minny, Crisco and fried chicken.
The Help ~ Minny’s chocolate pie scene. If some of you are offended by the S word do not push play. But Hilly was not a very nice person. Great movie.
