Pity party for a portly pizza cook at Pete & Dolly's "tavern" in upstate New York -- and not just portly (or as his mother prefers, "husky"), but inhibited, inarticulate almost to the point of mute, and with a hopeless crush on the vapidly pretty new waitress, Callie. James Mangold directs with quiet care, but not without condescension. Pruitt Taylor Vince, Liv Tyler, Deborah Harry, Shelley Winters. 1996.

Duncan Shepherd
