Unfrosted: The Pop-Tart Story (2024)

Jerry Seinfeld's latest vanity project is this screwball comedy set in 1963, detailing the totally fictional origin story of the Pop-Tart. Seinfeld plays an executive for Kellogg's who steers his invention through a competition with Post Cereals to see who could get a breakfast pastry to market first.

Unlike the many recent true-to-life origin stories about Beanie Babies and Flamin' Hot Cheetos, this work is entirely fictional, and based around an old joke from Seinfeld's standup career. There was no cutthroat competition to invent a toaster pastry. There was no scandal. Marjorie Post was real, but she didn't send a goon squad to beat up the pastry chefs of Battle Creek.

Some people have too much money.

Yuck, I would hardly watch a real version but a fictional version, no thanks.

I'll write an emotional but catchy theme song, "The Frost Outside."

I bet there’ll be a scene when some corporate fogey is not convinced. But he takes a bite … and then smiles.

Everybody cheers. It’s a success!

Sounds very 1995. Is Jennifer Aniston in it?

Also: Marjorie Post, the zillionaire foods kingpin and builder of Mar-a-Lago, will be played by Amy Schumer.

The most powerful woman in American business history will be portrayed (unflatteringly and in old-age makeup) by the comedian who gets paid to sing about farting during sex.

Considering The Crown, Feud: Capote vs the Swans, and Julia (HBO's Julia Child show) all took extensive detours from the truth, it seems like a bit of a quibble to fault a movie for explicitly diverging from reality. At least, they aren't pretending to tell a true story.

I wonder if Jerry has gotten better as an actor, because he was terrible at it on his sitcom.

That's why it only ran a couple of seasons.

I vaguely recall him mentioning this in an interview about a year or two ago, but I wasn't sure if he was being serious or not.

I REALLY hope this is a dig at Eva Longoria and that retarded Cheetos movie she forced onto screens.

Ugh, these ppl and the 60's.

R11/troll 6099,

How long have you been a troll?

I mean it. When did the DL webmaster conclude that you are an incorrigible, meaningless piece of shit who is so annoying that he decided to bestow upon you the scarlet TROLL label?

Is it embarrassing?

And why can’t you figure out how to deal with it?

No one can take you seriously.

I like Melissa McCarthy, I really do, but swear she says yes to any script that’s handed to her.

Seinfeld was an irreverent comedy concept that did not follow any of the standard sitcom structures. It really was basically a show about nothing featuring an ensemble cast with quirky characters with little redeeming character traits. If you really think about it non of the characters were characters you would want as close friends in your own real life, but they are entertaining to watch.

R16 And most of those scripts come from her screenwriter husband, who has all the talent of a fountain pen full of donkey semen.

It looks hilarious, they show way too much in the trailer but when have we had a real funny movie? Can't wait.

He showed himself to be a complete fucking dick at least 3 times per episode on his Comedians Allowing my Obnoxious Car Collection to be a Tax Write-off show. It made me wonder what assholery he had edited out

This looks even worse than expected.

I still can’t get past the fact that Amy Schumer is playing Marjorie Post in her SEVENTIES!

I know Amy’s got a fat face these days, but Jesus, what a rough look.

Some of you just don't have a God damn sense of humor anymore. It looks funny.

What is Marjorie Post doing in this? Pop-Tarts were developed and owned by Kellogg.

by Anonymousreply 24March 29, 2024 5:03 PM

It looks like a fun movie. I'll give it a watch. The only thing that surprises me is that Amy Schumer get an "and" credit

by Anonymousreply 25March 29, 2024 5:11 PM

If it's a send up of bio pics? I think it's a fucking brilliant premise.

This ensemble reminds me of Soapdish, you stack the deck enough there's no way NOT to love it.

by Anonymousreply 27March 31, 2024 4:39 PM

It’s very early 2000s George Clooney era Hollywood.

1960s, comedy, all star cast = Hollywood ass kissing bait

As said it’s a circle jerk vanity project it’s not for the actual public to enjoy
