Big Night

Big Night

I’ll be honest – I don’t think I “got” this.  I was attracted by the names… Stanley Tucci and Tony Shalhoub make for an attention-grabbing casting, for sure. Throw in Alison Janney, and it seems a cert. But pastiche characters and a farfetched plotline seemed to point to some sort of moralistic tale, or SOMETHING, that I wasn’t getting.  The only thing I think I took from this is that the scene at the end where they make the omelette in a one-shot reminded me of what was more or less the same scene in the last series of Billions.  So that wasn’t really worth 107 minutes of my time, was it?
