A sleeper hit of the early 1980s, Eating Raoul is a bawdy, gleefully amoral tale of conspicuous consumption. Warhol superstar Mary Woronov and cult legend Paul Bartel (who also directed) portray a prudish married couple feeling put upon by the swingers who live in their apartment building; one night, by accident, they discover a way to simultaneously realize their dream of opening a little restaurant and rid themselves of the “perverts” down the hall. A mix of hilarious, anything-goes slapstick and biting satire of me-generation self-indulgence, Eating Raoul marks the end of the sexual revolution with a thwack.
I had seen this ages ago. I laughed a lot! The acting is not good, and now it's dated as all heck. But the premise is really funny. Read morePublished 1 month ago by over the age of youth
did not watch entire film, but for what its worth, as a romantic type comedy, or black comedy, its watchable. someone had a budget, and idea, however twisted, and produced this.Published 1 month ago by jupiter one
A great black humor comedy. I enjoyed it when it was new, and it is still enjoyable. Refreshing, in the "Where's Poppa" vein.Published 2 months ago by jack
I LOVE PAUL BARTEL!
I still get residuals from his estate signed by his sister, who is listed in the movie credits as:

One of the funniest movies ever. Seen it many times, and will watch it again for sure. It's hard to describe the mood of this movie, it's really in a class of its own.Published 7 months ago by Gets Around
