It is one of the most beautifully staged American movies in a very long time.

May not have the size and grandeur of some of the biographical and political epics being released this fall, but I defy you to find a better written, more honest -- or yes, more satisfying and delicious -- movie this year. [27 September 1996, Friday, p.C]

It's so good, so jam-packed with delights, that it leaves you gorged -- and bemoaning the fatty glop that passes for moviemaking these days.

The film is loaded with brotherly affection and with warm, funny and poignant evocations of a gentler time.[20 September 1996, p.C12]

Like Primo's dishes, Big Night looks and tastes (yes, it does taste) like a labor of love.

There's an almost natty precision about this picture that's so rare these days in American movies that it provides satisfaction in itself.
