Film Review - Eat Wheaties!


“Eat Wheaties!” is a film that defies classification. It’s an adaptation of a 2005 book by Michael Kun, who created a fictional look at celebrity obsession, creating the character of Syd Straw, a seemingly normal guy who gets in deep when he elects to contact actress Heather Locklear and doesn’t realize he should stop.

It’s a very funny picture, but it’s not really a comedy. There’s darkness to the effort, but it’s hardly “The King of Comedy.” Abramovitch finds a weird rhythm for his odd movie, dealing with something slightly menacing in a bright way, also guiding Tony Hale to one of his best screen performances.
