Every year since 1969 the best three fried fish restaurants in the northeast have competed in the Golden Scallop Championship. The 43rd annual pits a food truck seeking redemption, an aging former champion and a well financed, novelty friendly fish house against each other in the truest test of short order cooking mettle. Follow the excitement, hilarity, and chaos as "The Golden Scallop" tracks these teams from selection till the glory of victory or the agony of defeat. Written by
The Golden Scallop is a hilarious and often crazy look at a Seafood cooking competition in the Northeast. The cast works brilliantly together, great chemistry and I wondered how they were able to get so many talented people, not being a big budget film. It was impressive seeing how they filmed the cooking scenes too, they looked so great. James Cosmo as the judge comes up with a gem of a performance and my other favorite character is Tobias Jelinek as Seth the fry cook, who also hit it out of the park.
If you are a fan of Napoleon Dynamite, you will probably love this film. In my opinion it is right up there with the Christopher Guest films and one of my absolute favorite comedies I have seen in the last year.
