A movie about two Italian immigrant brothers who are trying to make it in the United States restaurant business. The movie is hilarious, and deals in many respects with the bastardization of culture that seems to happen a lot in the U.S. of A.

The title comes from a big party the brothers have at the restaurant, when they serve up lots of really good food for potential investors. Hope that isn't to much of a spoiler.

A movie about idealism set in the context of two Italian brothers, Primo and Secondo (Stanley Tucci), trying to serve Italian cuisine to Americans in the '50s who would rather have spaghetti and meatballs at the steakhouse down the block.

Explored are compromise, trying to have it both ways and the importance of hope and conclusion.

Don't watch it - eat it up.
