Dinner Rush

Director: Bob Giraldi Cast: Danny Aiello, Edoardo Ballerini, Vivian Wu

DVD (Wide Screen / Pan & Scan)


Bob Giraldi's dark gangster comedy Dinner Rush comes to DVD with a pair of transfers. The widescreen anamorphic transfer preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1, and is preferable to the standard full-frame image. English soundtracks are rendered in both Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby Digital Surround. Supplemental materials include the original theatrical trailer. Those with access to a DVD-ROM drive can view extra bonus materials. This is a fine release that should satisfy genre enthusiasts.

This movie is a darkly comical look at family loyalty and the restaurant business. It revolves around one fateful night in the life of Udo, Duncan, and their father, the owner of the restaurant. Besides the serious main plot involving the mafia and Udo's desire to become an owner, there are a couple funny subplots, one involving the bartender and a customer, and another dealing with a waitress and a pretentious customer. In the end it all comes together with a twist. This is an excellent film if you are Italian, love food, and/or like mafia movies.
