The Linguini Incident (1991)

This gem is one of my all-time favorites.
Sadly, it was not widely distributed and fell into obscurity. The plot isn’t very complicated: she wants to refine her Houdini act; he needs a green card. They both need money and work in a ridiculously over-the-top trendy restaurant that could withstand a little robbery.
I like Roseanne Arquette and David Bowie–they seem very comfortable together… but what really makes this interesting in my mind is the very quirky dialogue. There are some unexpected, random and quite funny moments of banter. I bought up a bunch of VHS copies, and finally got someone to put it on a DVD for me. If you can find this, it’s a delightfully odd little Rom Com.
