Ha ha ha, OK— you know by now I like my films "highbrow." (And you love it.) But this one I just couldn’t resist.
Maybe you don’t agree (although what you could possibly have against Steve Carrell and Tina Fey, I’ll never know), but even you have to admit we all need a little laugh every once in awhile. Lighten up, Scorsese.
Even if you’re a stalwart pedantic curmudgeon, watch this film simply for the most accurate portrayal of NYC’s FOH fabulous fine-dining scene ever captured on celluloid to date.
"We’re verrry busy… mhmmm I’ve forgotten you already." It’ll give you chills, I tell you. Who were the consultants/inspiration for that scene, Emil Varda and Kamil Parchomienko?
See if you don’t start playing "What’s the Story…" in the side station. You know you will.
