Trivia

For this movie, The Dinner, English actor Steve Coogan's American accent used sounded so much like Willem Dafoe, that jokingly, Dafoe contacted Coogan to ask him to do voice overs for a new puppet show he was supposedly "in-production" and asked if he could use his voice to help out finishing while Dafoe was out sick. Coogan thought it was a serious offer and asked to talk it over with his agent. Dafoe promptly told him he was joking and did offer to keep in contact, "just in case!" See more »

Good movie, but...
6 July 2017 | by dgoode-40601See all my reviews

The movie stops at the end...no warning, no ending, just credits rolling. The movie holds your attention throughout. Good actors, good story line But bad ending. I truly expected more from this movie. It would be nice to know What happens after all that the parents go through and talk about during"dinner" Maybe there will be a sequel.
