    last nite me and the wife wacthed knight and day,(love red box at $1)it was actually very entertaining as long as there are no serious critics in the room,funny with plenty of sound effects. i thought i wouldnt like it but the wife wanted to see it. suprisingly i would recomend it for a gathering for its entertainment value

    What meal would be appropriate to serve with this movie? I'm looking for something that matches the theme/setting of the movie.

    Have you ever seen The Gods Must be Crazy, I & II? Those films are an absolute scream if you enjoy slapstick, situational humor. You'd probably have to cook up some Ethiopian food, though...

    we always want something that you dont have to keep getting up for or passing around,like pasta with bolonenges sauce or meatballs,or the easy way out pizza. if the crowed was older, we just wacthed the james taylor with carol king dvd,doubt its at red box though. for us older folks who want to keep the women interested it was very good and humorous.(for that one you might want some brownies, put a few on top with some oregano on them for theme)

    I do love Pixar movies (except Wall-E.. that one sucked).

    The wife really wants to see The American so I'm think of an Italian dish of some sort before the movie and tiramisu after.

    For the record I would have gone with Indiana Jones and chilled monkey brains if I were the one giving suggestions.

    Decided on The American and a pasta/meat dish that I got from Cooks Illustrated a year or two ago. It's got baby-back ribs, sausage, and meat balls all stewed in a tomato sauce and served over linguine. Caesar salad and grilled ciabatta bread with garlic and parmeigiana reggiano cheese. It's a family favorite and pretty much fits with nats' suggestion.

    I also stumbled on a wine that was suggested in an earlier thread, Layer Cake zinfandel, but we've got plenty of other wine choices on hand.

    Dinner should be good but frankly I'm not too excited about a George Clooney flick.
