"If you like THE SOPRANOS, you'll love THE DELI" - The Phantom of the Movies From director John Gallagher, THE DELI is an enchanting slice-of-life comedy about a hard luck gambler who gets in over his head when he starts putting his store's profits on the line. Written by
Not very much happens in this slice-of-life story about the people who work in and frequent a neighborhood deli. Most of the dialogue seems improvised, which isn't always such a good thing. There was a laugh or two but not enough to sustain interest throughout. Matt Keeslar is good and gets special credit for not even attempting a dese-dem-dose accent. The characters that come in and out of the story are sometimes interesting and colorful, but they add up to not very much. It is always nice seeing some good actors, like Chris Noth, Frank Vincent, Debi Mazar, William McNamara, Ice T and especially David Johanssen, who is perhaps funniest of all as a cabbie.
