Eat the Rich, Original US Poster, UK Movie 1987
Eat the Rich was made in the UK in 1987, and believe me, it was...............different.
Check out this review from IMDb: ""The Comic Strip Presents..." a lively, rowdy and bawdy cult black comedy gourmet with a novel one-joke premise like something John Watter's would churn out. Even that of Alex Cox's chaotic "Straight to Hell" shot to mind.
Eat the Rich, an amusing oddball independent British feature kicks you in the guts with its heavy-handed approach from its acting to its dialogues and prominent surrealistic visual styling. No one is safe from the insults. It's sick and twisted with real ugly streak, but quite enjoyable as its anarchic messages are just so knee-jerk, the clever humour can be sneaky in its jabs and its episodically loose writing is just so random with its comic shocks.
Interesting to see some familiar faces (Angie Bowie, Bill Wyman, Miranda Richardson and Paul McCartney) popping up with the likes of "The Comic Strip" being involved along with Motorhead contributing to the frenetic rock soundtrack. Even the bassist / singer Lemmy gets a part in the film. Al Pillay and Nosher Powell (looking great in green business suits) are the two who steal the limelight with their electric performances, one deadpan while the other manic in delivery."
The cast list was everybody, really. It's here, along with the full Wiki story (an oxymoron in itself): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eat_the_Rich_(film)
Eat the Rich provides a natty talking point for your dining room.
