Top Ten Movie Feasts
While there’s a lot of eating going on in this film, seriously, you do not want to know what they’re eating in this film. This adaptation of 120 Days of Sodom, the Marquis de Sade’s tale of breaking pretty much every sexual and moral limit there is, was always going to be pretty hard to watch. But it turns out you can get banned all over the world for decades just for serving up what might be, if you squint real hard, a giant plate of slightly melted Snickers bars. Eww. Actually, let’s just pretend I didn’t even mention it here. Look, the infamous McDonalds dance sequence from the worst movie ever made, Mac and Me!
2: Eat Drink Man Woman.
Here’s a recipe for a successful food movie: have an old chef with three daughters try to hold his family together by cooking elaborate sit-down meals every weekend. Massive feast-size meals, full of loads of delicious-looking food that makes your mouth water just to look at them… mmmm, food porn… Oh right, the gals want to move on, relationship stuff, blah blah everyone finds love in the end because love is food for the soul or something. It worked for Eat Drink Man Woman – insert joke about how that’s your favorite dumb celebrity / sports figure’s way of asking for a date – it worked for Mexican-themed remake Tortilla Soup and it worked for African-American knock-off Soul Food. Anyone looking to check out my script for an Australian version titled Four’n’Twenty Pie, leave your email in the comments section.
1: Babette’s Feast.
This is nothing but no-excuses food smut. I hope you’re satisfied.
