From the box:
You are what you eat!
“You are what you eat,” is given new meaning when a trendy London restaurant is suddenly taken over by maniacal subversives in the outrageous Eat The Rich. Nosher Powell stars as an ex-boxer, beer-gulping bully elected to the elitist position of Home Security, second in command to the Prime Minister. Tired of watching his country be terrorized by undesirables, Nosher kicks butts…bashes baddies…and still finds time to flirt with the Queen. Meanwhile, a surly but sensitive ex-waiter Alex (Lanah Pellay) has assembled a small band to join his people’s uprising-while suave Commander Fortune (Ronald Allen), a Soviet double agent, and his sidekick Spider (Lemmy), are plotting Nosher’s downfall. It’s might versus mincemeat, where the strongest, sexiest, or just plain silliest wind up eating eating their words-or each other-in this unforgettable spoof of the upper crust featuring music by “Motorhead,” and cameos by Paul McCartney, Koo Stark and Bill Wyman.
