We've talked about favorite gadgets and guilty pleasures, now on to something a little more visual: this week's question is, what's your favorite food movie?

These video clips should do a thorough job of sending you off into the weekend. Post your favorite food movies (and TV shows, why not) in the comments!

My Big Fat Greek Wedding
: Also, "A bon...a bont...a bundt?"

Big Night
Peter S.: "After seeing it, my good friend Sim decided that a timpano must be tried. He made a delicious one and now makes it an annual event."
Jennifer V.: "I got engaged the night I saw it -- that's what I call the perfect date night!"

: It isn't exactly a food movie but I loved when Meryl Streep said "rice pudding is a very personal thing" -- my feelings exactly. And when she slams the key lime pie in his face!

The Parent Trap II
Kristen: In one scene around 1:04:15, the girls make cookies and dump in bags of M&Ms, chocolate chips, jelly beans, marshmallows, etc. I very sincerely wanted to be them. This might explain some things (like the Sprite & cookies 'n cream floats).

It Takes Two
Brette: My favorite food scene ever -- EVER -- is the food fight scene in the Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen movie It Takes Two.

Nozlee: It's kind of sad, and kind of cheesy, but mostly adorable. Also, pie!

Stephanie: There is an episode of King of the Hill where Hank joins the food co-op that I just love. On eating the tomatoes from the co-op versus those from the Mega-lo-mart, Peggy says, "If this is food, what have we been eating?" Also, "The puns about food get a little tiring -- peanut better, fakin' bacon, turkey burger." It's just the very best.

Babette's Feast
: That scene where they all sit down to dinner (finally) seems pulled directly out of my dinner party dreams.
