[It] forgets a vital piece of the equation: Jokes work better when they're funny.

After a promising entrapment scene that offers some casually eerie narrative details, the film collapses, lurching awkwardly between a variety of tones and intentions.

Glory's inconsistent characterization defeats rather than builds tension, and the tepid soon gives way to the ridiculous ...

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.

Ultimately "Serving Up Richard" feels about as substantial as a Happy Meal (which this poor guy assuredly is not).

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.

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.

Mr. McCall spends most of the film in a cell, but he does a fine job of keeping his character interesting.
