Lucy (Rosanna Arquette) is an underpaid, underappreciated waitress at a terminally hip New York City restaurant called Dali. She’s also an aspiring escape artist desperately in need of cash in order to buy Harry Houdini’s wedding ring. Monte (David Bowie) is the shady but charming new bartender who desperately needs to get married at any cost. Together they join forces— along with Lucy’s best friend, the self-defense bra-designing Viv (Eszter Balint)—to rob the popular restaurant and all the “trend-sucking leeches” who dine there. As one might expect, it doesn’t go as planned—but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Funny, romantic, and wonderfully odd, the cult classic The Linguini Incident, co-starring Andre Gregory, Buck Henry and Marlee Matlin, is “an off-the-wall treat,” and a “contemporary screwball comedy that actually works, ” according to the LA Times. (Richard Shepard, USA, 1992, 98 min.)
