This is my favorite scene, from my favorite food movie of all time. It's from Big Night, and features Ian Holm, giving a pep talk to Stanley Tucci, owner of a neighboring rival Italian restaurant. If you want to feel the agony and ecstasy of the restaurant business, rent this movie.
Holiday get-togethers can spur long, heated debates among family members about which DVD to rent after dinner. Well, here is a suggestion everyone should like. The movie is sweet, sad, hilarious, and shows everything that's great and horrible about the food business. Warning: This clip contains adult language. Enjoy!
