Extended video for the song Blue Jean about Vic who falls for a girl and promises her tickets for the hottest act in town - rock star Screaming Lord Byron. He attains only one ticket, gives it to her and tries to find another way in.
I didn't expect much of this movie, I wanted to watch it just because I'm a little bit obsessed with David Bowie right now and he's in it. I was nicely surprised, for I enjoyed it very much and I might even watch it again. Over and over again.
The movie has a colourful 90's atmosphere, it's cute and comic. The storyline is pretty unreal and all the characters are kind of crazy. Rosanna Arquette plays a Houdini lover and wannabe escape artist, her foolish best friend Viv designs extravagant bras. Bowie portrays a mystery English man who needs to get married to get a green card and to be allowed to stay in America. He is unbelievably charming in that role (aah his voice!) These three are all in a desperate need of money and decide to rob the restaurant they work at.
The Linguini incident -surprisely not much known - is a small treasure, an entertaining comedy with a pinch of romance. Watch this, it will shift your mood. I strongly recommend it :)
