Big Night turns 20


For fans of films that revolve around food, the movie Big Night is often a favorite. The iconic movie turned 20 this week, and to celebrate the anniversary, indexed magazine Bon Appétit interviewed cast members to discuss the movie, their favorite foods, and more.

It's fair to say that Big Night had a big influence on the cast members. Stanley Tucci said that it "made me much more interested in food than I'd ever been. Sometimes you do a movie about a subject and immerse yourself in it, and think "Oh god, I never want to do that again." This made me want to explore food more, and it's become a huge part of my life. I think about it as much, if not more, than I do acting."

Other cast members are also avid cooks. Minnie Driver was especially animated when expressing her passion for cooking, saying "You know what, I love to cook. I love seeing people's faces. I love comforting my boyfriend when he's had a really long day by cooking for him. It's such an expression of love." Learn more about the favorite foods of other cast members including Isabella Rossellini and Tony Shalhoub, and find out which foods they absolutely can't stand (Driver has a few choice words about foam), on the Bon Appétit website

    One of my favourite movies ever! I loved reading Isabella Rossellini's comments. (Btw on food trends, I kinda wish all of them would go away!)
