Kick start your day with a good breakfast

Breakfast on the Big Screen

Hollywood does breakfast well.

I always breakfast in sunglasses, don’t you?

Can we be nostalgic for the 1980s?

For me, the best breakfast scene ever is in “Big Night.” After a raucous party at their Italian restaurant the night before, two brothers (Tony Shalhoub and Stanley Tucci) come together in their kitchen–and not a word is spoken. As Roger Ebert wrote, “There is an unbroken shot in which one prepares a perfect omelet and serves it to the other, and we are left suspecting that anyone who can make a perfect omelet can pass almost any other test life has to offer.” Genius.

What’s your favorite breakfast scene in a movie? Indie or foreign or big-budget…I’d love to know.

  1. I can’t think of a single breakfast scene in a movie, except for Titanic. The table-turnover scene with Cal and Rose. However, because of your post I am motivated to watch “Big Night”. I’ve often thought those two looked like brothers 🙂
