SPECIAL REPORT #29: "Shelter en Place" Theater presents Dinner Rush, with Guest Critics Allison & Matt Robicelli

Episode Summary

Allison & Matt Robicelli are back for this week's Shelter en Place movie review of Bob Giraldi's 2000 cooks & mobsters melodrama Dinner Rush.

Episode Notes

It's Friday, which means it's time for our latest Shelter en Place movie review with our favorite critical culinarians, Allison and Matt Robicelli. This week, we get into the 2000 Bob Giraldi cooks and mobsters melodrama Dinner Rush, which plays out in one tumultuous night at a Tribeca restaurant. In a first, the Robicellis and Andrew find themselves at odds--Andrew loves, loves, loves the movie and its realistic depiction of a restaurant in action, while Allison and Matt damn it with the dismissive "meh." Listen in as we hash it out and try to find some common ground.

Our great thanks to S.Pellegrino for making these special reports possible.
