Thea Gilien and Matt Houlihan from The Podcast Review Show return to Flixwatcher remotely to review Thea’s choice Big Night.   Big Night is a 1996 comedy-drama co-directed by Campbell Scott and Stanley Tucci. It stars Tucci and Tony Shalhoub as two Italian immigrant brothers, Secondo and Primo. Minnie Driver, Alison Janney, and Isabella Rossellini co-star as their love interests. Their jointly owned restaurant is struggling, they are losing business to rival Italian ‘Pascal’s’ (Ian Holm) and losing customers as Primo refuses to “Americanize” their food to keep the customers happy. Pascal tells Secondo that Louis Prima will dine at their restaurant and this will save the business so he and Primo put their differences aside to cook and prepare the perfect feast for the ‘Big Night’ Big Night largely flew under the radar when it was released in 1996 but has since grown a loyal following, however, the opinion of Flixwatcher and guests was divided. Thea and Kobi were prepared to overlook the dodgy Italian accents and unbelievable love interests, Helen and Matt were less convinced. Matt did not like it at all, saying Big Night is trite, with unbelievable characters with an over lit and badly choreographed climatic party night scene. Don’t hold back Matt!     Scores 

[supsystic-tables id=187] The scores for Big Night from Thea and Kobi were generous, from Matt less so (with a big fat zero for recommendability, repeat viewing, and engagement) but despite this Big Night still manages to score 3.16 overall.
