Meet Glory and Everett Hutchins...maybe you've already met them. They live in a neighborhood very much like yours, except they have a little secret. Everett (Jude Ciccolella) and Glory (Susan Priver) are active cannibals. And their lifestyle presents some practical challenges: like how do you get those necessary provisions?

Ultimately "Serving Up Richard" feels about as substantial as a Happy Meal (which this poor guy assuredly is not).
Mr. McCall spends most of the film in a cell, but he does a fine job of keeping his character interesting.
[It] forgets a vital piece of the equation: Jokes work better when they're funny.
Glory's inconsistent characterization defeats rather than builds tension, and the tepid soon gives way to the ridiculous ...
A tepid domestic hostage drama with the additional elemental garnish of cannibalism, Serving Up Richard is a silly, yawning bore.
Do we really need another cannibal movie? A minor mess, Serving Up Richard is almost indigestible.
something of a mixed bag of an apparently whimsical film title and concept, some over-the-top gory images, and a serious conflict of attitudes and acting.
After a promising first hour filled with suspense and clever dark comedy, it sinks into implausibility, silliness and banality. Its bite could use sharper teeth.
