Critics Consensus

Eating Raoul serves up its spectacularly lurid tale with a healthy heaping of pitch-black humor and anarchic vigor.

Audience Reviews for Eating Raoul

  • Dec 08, 2013
    A very well known cult film that follows a married couple as they are shafted numerous times and must "adapt" to their situation in order to open their dream restaurant. Wow this is some black humor and is both disturbing, hilariously absurd, and offers some social commentary as well. You really just have to see it in order to know the absurdity and hilariousness of Eating Raoul. Of course it is rated R for some expected sexual content and nudity as well as language and other adult material.

    It seems that almost by accident Bartel made a great satire about the absurd ways that Americans perceive themselves and their hypocritical views of sexuality and violence. Its basically a Bunuel film by way of a screwball comedy . . . and just a touch of Sweeney Todd.

    A very funny cult movie, I really liked it, the story is really good too.The only thing I didn't really like was the ending, but still, I highly recommend it.

    Not bad for low budget, cannibalistic, 80's film-making where the highlight is a short erotic scene and the biggest star is Ed Begley, Jr.
