A man spirals after being accused of stalking the real Elizabeth Banks in Eat Wheaties! trailer
Facebook is just the worst, ain't it? Tony Hale's Sid Straw knows.
Social media isn't for everyone. Sid Straw is proof of that.
The film is based on author Michael Kun's 2003 novel, but there have been some changes. For one, the source material is called The Locklear Letters about how the unexceptional Sid tries to rekindle a friendship with his college classmate Heather Locklear by sending a letter asking for an autograph. The movie now focuses on Banks and incorporates the age of social media.
After becoming the co-chair of his college reunion, Sid joins Facebook, through which he tries reaching out to his old classmate, Banks. Messages he posts on her fan pages go viral, which leads to Sid losing his job and getting banned from the reunion. He then hires an inexperienced lawyer (Paul Walter Hauser) to help clear his name.
Danielle Brooks (Orange Is the New Black), Robbie Amell (Upload), Elisha Cuthbert (Happy Endings), Sarah Chalke (Firefly Lane), Sarah Goldberg (Barry), and Alan Tudyk (Resident Alien) fill out the cast.
After making the film festival rounds in 2020, Eat Wheaties! will now open in theaters and on demand April 30 from Screen Media.
