What movie goes best with Pizza?
 
I got a portable projector for my birthday!!!

The idea is to have pizza and a movie nights in the outdoor kitchen (that still is not quite finished yet....)

I'm building a 16ftx9ft screen and will position that at the end of the patio.

I'm going to have to have a pizza/movie night soon!!! I'll need a great movie for the premiere.

My biggest question - What movie goes best with Pizza????

All the best!

We like to show the classic films from 1939 era or Italian films with subtitles.

I like the Italian film idea. I think a pizza themed or influenced movie is what I want but the Italian with subtitles should be lots of fun.

thanks

I always like "Big Night", with Stanley Tucci and Tony Shalhoub. Not a pizza movie, but definitely a great food movie. It'll make you want to cook and eat all night long.

What age group are your guests?

If kids are included I would suggest "Ratatouille", if adults (audience predominantly ladies) then "Tortilla Soup" (a remake of "Eat Drink Man Woman" one set in S. Calif. the other in China both written/co-written by Ang Lee); or if you want some action and a twist at the end "Dinner Rush" w/ Danny Aiello and John Corbett. The guys will like this one and the ladies will accept it, if not like it.

All include some great meal scenes (both preparation and eating). If you have the time and the inclination, the best eating scene of all time is still considered by many the one in "Tom Jones" starring Albert Finney and Susannah York. But you may have more clean up the next morning :-)

I'm also into home theatre, 16 x 9 is quite a large screen even for a front projector. What projector did you get? What are coating the projecting surface with? What sort of sound system. Details!

Bests,
Wiley

I would recommend Bottle Shock with pizza.

If you're looking for a film with pizza in it, an old Julia Roberts film, Mystic Pizza is good.

Another vote for "Big Night". I use the soundtrack for my pizza parties all the time...

I was going to suggest Mystic Pizza, too, but fxpose beat me to it. Therefore, I'll recommend Spaceballs, since it has Pizza the Hut in it.:p

Breaking Away is a classic cycling movie centered around an Italian-American family in Indiana. I've seen this film many times and goes well with pizza. :)
