Classic pizza moments in the movies

How many of you folks like pizzas? I am sure most of you do. Imagine biting a slice of delicious pizza, all that topping on a thick/thin crust, yummy.

Sophia Loren plays the frisky young wife of a pizza vendor who loses her wedding ring during a tryst, then lies to her husband, saying it slipped off while kneading the dough. A frantic search ensues, and with a little sleight of hand, the ring miraculously appears in the last pie.

3. Pizza as a Media Magnet. Dog Day Afternoon (USA, 1975). During a badly botched bank heist, Sonny (Al Pacino) and Sal (John Cazale) hole themselves up with hostages. The ordeal drags on, so Sonny negotiates with the FBI to have pizza delivered. As TV cameras roll, the delivery guy is paid with a wad of bills from the bank’s coffers. He waves his arms and jumps up in the air: “I’m a fucking star!”

4. Pizza as Something to Go with Polyester. Saturday Night Fever (USA, 1977). “Hiya Tony. Two or three?” “Two, two, gimme two, that’s good.” The opening scene of this ’70s disco drama features a classic pizza move: Tony (John Travolta) slaps two slices together double-decker style, taking big bites through both layers as he struts down the street…

Yeah, they have decent pizza. Haven't been there for a while for a couple of reasons. 1. Trying to lose weight so pizza isn't exactly a good prescription for that. And B. they were on the spendy side.
