Big Night is about the goods: good food, good music, good story.

This 1996 film was written and directed by Stanley Tucci. Featured stars include StanleyTucci, Marc Anthony, Tony Shalhoub, Minnie Driver, Isabella Rossellini and Ian Holm along with a soundtrack of Louis Prima's greatest hits.

The story line: Primo and Secondo are two brothers who have emigrated from Italy to open an Italian restaurant in America. Primo is the irascible and gifted chef, brilliant in his culinary genius, but determined not to squander his talent on making the routine dishes that customers expect. Secondo is the smooth front-man, trying to keep the restaurant financially afloat, despite few patrons other than a poor artist who pays with his paintings. The owner of the nearby Pascal's restaurant, enormously successful (despite its mediocre fare), offers a solution - he will call his friend, a big-time jazz musician, to play a special benefit at their restaurant. Primo begins to prepare his masterpiece, a feast of a lifetime, for the brothers' big night…
