Oops, just so it was mentioned above.

How about the armadillo groom's cake in Steel Magnolias?

That "diner" was Katz's deli. pb

    After the mention of Like Water For Chocolate it reminded me of the Juliette Binoche/Johnny Depp film Chocolat... yum.

    And French Kiss when the lactose intolerant Meg Ryan character eats the French cheeses on a train... and also her escapade with the dessert cart in the posh restaurant. Heehee.

      Spanglish: How about the Keller sandwich Adam Sandler made? Yum, I love runny yolks.

        The Sunshine Boys where Walter Matthau is being lectured by his nephew (cant think of the actors name) about all the nitrates in the dog and how bad they are.
        Monte Walsh in the Skimpy's revenge scene.
        Even though it was in black and white, I always wanted to taste Bob Crachet's punch and Mrs Crachet's plum pudding.

              "Thats a good fu**in' milkshake!!!" @ Jackrabbit Slims (Pulp Fiction)

              "Mind if I take a bite of your Big Kahuna burger Brad?" (Pulp Fiction)

              The scene in Goodfellas when they are slicing the garlic with the razor blade & you see the manicured nails during the closeup....classic scene.

              "Sewer rat may taste like pumkin pie, dont you dont see me eating any of those filthy motherfu**ers" Pulp Fiction diner scene

              In Starman when Jeff Bridges tases Dutch Apple Pie for the first time

              "nobody, I mean nobody puts just ketchup on a hot dog" one of the Dirty Harry movies

              Diner scene with the french fries in "The Hitcher"...still makes me look at my fries closely

              Many more but I have to go to work......

                I liked that sandwich too, spazz. That movie was kind of a hot mess though--some very good things and some very bad things.

                  Clue – Christopher Lloyd slurping his soup.

                  The Breakfast Club – The lunch scene with the students.

                  A Christmas Story – Christmas dinner in the Chinese restaurant.

                    Did anyone see "Babette's Feast"?
                    Here's some info on this great movie (it won an Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film in 1988):
                    I highly recommend it for all the food scenes, and it made me cry.

                    I loved all the food references in "Fargo"-- Took the edge off all the violence and foul language!
                    Marge Gunderson: "Oh, I just think I'm gonna barf... Well, that passed. Now I'm hungry again."

                    "Raising Arizona", another Coen Brothers movie had a lot of food in it, too. Mr. D-L and I particularly like the scene where John Goodman's character, Gale Snoats, is eating a fried chicken leg and he tells H.I. McDunnough (Nicholas Cage), "You gotta use your head, H.I." as he touches his head with the chicken.

                    Some food scenes from "Annie Hall":

                    Alvy Singer: "Annie, there's a big lobster behind the refrigerator. I can't get it out. This thing's heavy. Maybe if I put a little dish of butter sauce here with a nutcracker, it will run out the other side."

                    The split screen of Annie's "WASP" family eating a holiday dinner and Alvy's Jewish family eating theirs. And Alvy and Annie's first date at a NY deli where Annie orders pastrami on white bread with mayonnaise, tomatoes, and lettuce.

                    Other movies I've seen and enjoyed have already been mentioned: Big Night, Diner, Goodfellas, and 2001 name a few where I particularly remember the food.
                      the ancient mariner

                      I saw a movie, a very funny movie about a very un-funny subject, called
                      "Bread and Chocolate". I think it was in the 80s. The hero is an Italian
                      waiter in a ritzy restaurant in Switzerland. He is treated terribly
                      but must endure to feed his family back home. If you can find it you will
                      laugh and cry and want to see it again. I remember the scene where he has
                      to peel an orange in one piece, it is epic. A great movie.

                      And then there was the baked bean dinner in Blazing Saddles--nothing epic
                      there, but a very funny movie by Mel Brooks, so how could it not be funny.

                        There's a great moment (among many) in A Hard Days Night where Ringo runs off on his own - as the group manager laments of his getting a taste of the high life, we cut to Ringo in a grim little pub facing down a stale sandwich. The barmaid grouses 'It was fresh this mornin'!'

                          Here's an interesting list of movies for foodies:
                          I haven't seen many of these, just Ratatouille, Waitress and Big Night, all movies that I loved. 
                          I've been trying to get a hold of a copy of Tampopo forever. Sounds like a movie I would really like.

                            Now, what are your favorite scenes featuring food in the movies?

                            Here I go:

                            "Tom Jones" I THINK I am right about this: There's a scene where a couple are ripping apart lamb's legs and eyeing each other over what they are gonna have fun doing later. Right?

                            You are very right about[url='']this[/url]! One of my favorites! pb

                                  Surprised no one mentioned "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner"
                                  One of the All-Time Classics. It was Spencer Tracy's last performance.
