    Disappointing considering some things I heard but still well acted and well directed. Nothing too special.

    The reviews got it right. It is excellent yet unmemborable and uncomfortably strange. All in all its hard to describe and to get the real first hand experience you have to see it yourself.

    This film was engaging, hilarious, and very rich (and I am not just talking about the food!). It was a real slice of life in New York, pretty raw and very funny.

  1. This quirky 2004 documentary ends with the Shopsins' forced relocation after 32 years, an uprooting made all the more poignant by Eve's death during filming.

    I was desperate to eat at Shopsin's by the end.

    A rare, hilarious and ultimately touching look at the kind of American iconoclast that barely exists anymore.
