Dinner Rush [DVD] [2000]

  • SKU: 5184873
  • Release Date: 01/21/2003
  • Rating: R
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.

Dinner Rush
Music may be the food of love, but a group of gangsters are singing a very different tune at a fancy New York dining room in this dark comedy. Louis (Danny Aiello) is the owner of an upscale restaurant in New York's Tribeca district where his son Udo (Edoardo Ballerini) has become the head chef. Udo's exotic recipes have made the restaurant the talk of the town and very profitable as well, though Louis confesses that he can't stand Udo's cooking. Louis has another son, Duncan (Kirk Acevedo), who runs with a bad crowd; Louis finds out just how bad they are one night when they stop by to dine, with Duncan in tow, informing Louis that his son owes them quite a bit of money and they aren't leaving until they're given part ownership of the restaurant -- or else someone will be killed. Dinner Rush was directed by Bob Giraldi, a noted director of commercials and music videos who also enjoyed success as a restaurateur. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
