  • Summary: Set on one lively night at a trendy restaurant in the TriBeCa area of New York City, this is a rapid-fire tale of gangsters, gourmet food, high-flying chefs, bookies and obnoxious patrons made real with snappy dialogue and an experienced ensemble cast. (Access Motion Picture Group)

  1. 100
    A funny, frenetic, and often quite touching microcosm of the Big Apple life itself, essayed by a pitch-perfect cast and boasting authentic urban flavors.
  2. Some of the finest ensemble acting this year.
  3. 90
    Serves up its scattershot plots as if they were lined up on a menu, moving from appetizer to entree: there are more intrigues here than in the court of the Medicis.
  4. 80
    Combines pulse-of-the-city drama and comedy with an elaborate revenge plot, but mostly the movie is about New Yorkers talking.
  5. 75
    There are enough plots here to challenge a Robert Altman, specialist in interlocking stories, but the director, Bob Giraldi, masters the complexities as if he knows the territory. He does.
  6. A witty, well-acted, visually gorgeous ensemble drama.
  7. Reviewed by: Frank Lovece
    40
    Despite the Lear-like trappings and the talented young cast, which does its work with considerable grace, it has little momentum or punch.
