Danny Aiello is one of my favourite actors and does an excellent job in "Dinner Rush". The twists and turns in this movie will keep you riveted. I can't understand why this movie has flowen under the radar along with another great flick "Bubba Hotep" starring Bruce Campbell - they're both well worth watching. Highly recommended!

I have been looking for this movie for ages. Because it's such an old title it was impossible to find at any movie store. I went on Amazon and found it right away. It was at a fantastic price and I received it within a week. I LOVE this movie and I am so glad to have found it on Amazon.

The premise of this movie is rather simple - father/restaurant-owner/bookie wants to get out of the bookie business; son/chef who wants to take over the restaurant as part of growing up; young family friend in trouble with bookies.. BUT.. don't let that dissuade you from watching.
Except for the opening scene, the events of the movie all take place during one night and largely in one place when the conflicts built into the premise converge in the restaurant.
The cinematography is outstanding - the ballet of activity in the kitchen is wonderfully filmed
The acting is all top-notch. Even the minor characters (waiters, cooks, guests) deliver their roles well. The only drawback here is Sandra Bernhard as a food writer - she does schtick rather than acting.
The plot is simple and fairly predictable, but so was Casablanca which in some ways this movie's structure resembles.
Watch and enjoy.
Warning - eat a good meal first; the dinner scenes will make you hungry.

The characters are what drive this movie and make it fun to watch. Though I realize that last lobster dish he created for the stuck-up food critic was meant to be ridiculous, I still found myself drooling all over the couch. Danny Aiello is perfect as the low-key restauraunt owner who is not impressed with his star chef son's cuisine.
The events are realistic, and I loved the pretentious, condesending "Fitzgerald" jerk who just rips his waitress to shreds with his lowbrow, rude remarks. The gay maitere D was hilarious as was the ... bartender who challenges his customers to trivia and rakes in the dough. My only semi-complaint was the ending which I found to be rather predictable and unbelievable, saw it coming a mile away.
Still, this is a great indy film, and a must-see for anyone who works or has worked in a trendy restaurant.

It's Sat. morning and I just stumbled onto this awesome movie! What more could you want besides Pancakes and sausage served up with real maple syrup, black coffee. After watching Dinner Rush, I am ready for Lunch!!! Its a great cast acting in a very well written script! Danny Aiello's portrayal of "ol' Tony" in The Professional could be a side script to Dinner Rush. Old Dog on the block that will not be pushed around. Its every Italian restaurant in NYC with that one table that the owner reserves for himself. From the front of the house to back of the house, the restaurant is real!!! The conversations could take place anywhere fine dining is hustled. The stress and pressure is a big part of the food service industry and you can see the realism in this movie. When you see that server being tortured by a overly demanding customer, understand that they work hard for every penny!!! Food, food, and more food!!! As movies of food go this one should come with a recipe book. Finally, I suggest no dieters watch this movie, you can gain weight from just watching it!!!

As with one of the previous reviewers, I caught this movie on IFC the other night. I missed the first 10 minutes of the movie but once I tuned in for a few minutes, I couldn't turn the channel. Incredible acting and directing all around. The only beef I have is having the guy who blocked the stairs be so identifiable to the cop's wife. Didn't he have even a little bit of trouble with the cops before being able to drive away???
Inspired bit of casting having John Corbett play the ... I won't ruin it too much.
Strongest endorsement I can give is that as soon as it was over, I was looking online to buy this movie.

A true gem. Caught two thirds of it on TV so missed the title. Been looking for it by tracking Danny Aiello. Then it ran again on a cable channel. Really good mix of several plots and characters mostly by actors unknown to me. Very understated. Nice plot twists.

The story of a low level "family" man who runs an Italian restaurant. Louis Cropa (Danny Aiello)has a little trouble with some local up-and-comers, which he has to deal with while paying off his favorite chefs gambling debts, handing the restaurant over to his son, and entertaining a packed house on a "ordinary" Tuesday night in one of the hot restaurants of New York. With colorful side characters (the artist-waitress, irritating customer, beautiful hostess, eccentric food critic (underused Sandra Bernhard)) the movie easily keeps you occupied and interested from start to finish.
Dinner Rush takes place almost entirely within/around the confines of Louis Cropa's restaurant. The suave Aiello does a good job of relaxing you when everyone else in the movie is falling apart. The contrast of an in-control main character, and an out-of-control supporting cast makes for good cinema. The supporting cast turns in a strong performance (actors you know you've seen but can't quite place) and you are easily caught up in the hustle and bustle of running a busy Italian restaurant. One notable exception, at least for me, was the wooden performance of Mike McGlone. His only qualifacation as a gangster seeming to be his slicked back hair. ...though he does do that well. (Brothers McMullen & She's the One)
With my one piece of criticism aside, this lesser known movie is well worth watching. And if you're a fan of food, and a fan of New York it's hard not to be entranced by this stylish piece of cinema.
4/5 Stars
