Make what you will of the politics, as a series of sketches it delivers the laughs.

Eat the Rich looks deceptively haphazard, though keeping this sort of comedy on-target takes discipline, a willingness to throw out a lot of material before finding the stuff that works.

It feels like punk on the downward swing, after most of its rude energy has dissipated.

Jan 1, 2000 | Full Review…

Although writers Peter Richardson and Pete Richens have a flair for one-liners and recasting comic British standbys (rich, poor, twit, villain, big-breasted, dark-skinned), they strain so hard to be funny, you wish they'd relax.

Audience Reviews for Eat the Rich

I've been waiting since high school to watch this movie and I really have to say that this movie is horrible. The only thing I liked about it was the soundtrack otherwise this was a complete waste of time.
