Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Ultimately "Serving Up Richard" feels about as substantial as a Happy Meal (which this poor guy assuredly is not)."
‑ Sara Stewart, New York Post
"Glory's inconsistent characterization defeats rather than builds tension, and the tepid soon gives way to the ridiculous ..."
‑ Andrew Schenker, Village Voice
"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."
‑ Mark R. Leeper, Mark Leeper's Reviews
"Mr. McCall spends most of the film in a cell, but he does a fine job of keeping his character interesting."
‑ Neil Genzlinger, New York Times
"A tepid domestic hostage drama with the additional elemental garnish of cannibalism, Serving Up Richard is a silly, yawning bore."
‑ Brent Simon,
"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."
‑ Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru
"[It] forgets a vital piece of the equation: Jokes work better when they're funny."
‑ Ian Buckwalter, NPR
"Do we really need another cannibal movie? A minor mess, Serving Up Richard is almost indigestible."
‑ Eric Monder, Film Journal International
"After a promising entrapment scene that offers some casually eerie narrative details, the film collapses, lurching awkwardly between a variety of tones and intentions."
‑ Chuck Bowen, Slant Magazine
