Movie Info

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? Meet Richard Reubens...perhaps you've met him too. A mid-level Wall Street investment specialist, Richard (Ross McCall) was transferred to the LA offices under some murky circumstances. When Richard answers an ad selling a vintage Mustang, he unwittingly winds up Glory and Everett's captive in their secret room, in their nice house, in the neighborhood that looks like your neighborhood. And Richard is fated to be the next addition to their unorthodox menu. However...Richard is not a silent lamb about to be led willingly to his own slaughter. -- (C) Official Site

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 ...

Top Critic

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.

Audience Reviews for Serving Up Richard

While it starts out with a slightly promising premise after 30 minutes it's all downhill and boring.
