Funny and fun movie
1 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's no surprise this film won the Austin Film Festival Audience Award. It's hilarious and just realistic enough to make anyone who has worked in the restaurant business nod knowingly (or cringe, if an owner.) The story moves along quickly as we follow the trials and triumphs of of some dedicated, but occasionally clueless competitors. James Cosmos is great as the old New Englander judge and the rest of the cast shines. The writing is crisp and strikes a perfect balance of sincerity and silliness. The local color shown through the on-location filming on Cape Cod gives the film an authentic New England feeling and adds to the realism of the competition. These guys know their way around a fryolator! The 43rd Golden Scallop does for the restaurant business what "Best in Show" did for the Show dog circuit. I loved it.
