This week on Eating Disorder, Spyro and Crazy Legs take on food at the movies. Welcoming guest Kevin Carr, host of the radio show Fat Guys at the Movies, to aid in the discussion, the guys delve right into movies where food is a predominant factor. From innocent rom-coms like Simply Irresistable to the darker Hannibal Lecter movies to the popular documentary Super Size Me, food seems to be at the epicenter of many films throughout the years. Tune in as the guys bring up some of their favorite food scenes, particularly in the infamous Pulp Fiction, and point out how food is elevated in some of our favorite, timeless films. This program was brought to you by Rolling Press.
“Starting in the 90s with Emeril and all the Food Network shows that everybody watches but nobody makes the food because the recipes never work… I think Hollywood wants to consider itself in the know and trendy.” [33:53]
“I think Eat, Pray, Love would have been a better movie had it been a cannibal thing… Eat, Prey, Love.” [35:53]
