Storyline

For the past twenty years, obsessed Johnny Depp fans and fraternal twin sisters, Seretta and LouAnne Burr, have shared a miserable existence as high school lunch ladies serving up rubbery chicken parts, ammonia-treated government meat and whatever else the cash-strapped national lunch program sends their way. This year is going to be different: The twin's Cheesy Burger Bites recipe is the Grand Prize Winner of Johnny Depp's Cook for Kid's Charity Event. Convinced this is their ticket out of high school hell town and that "The Depper" will hire them to be his very own Personal Chefs, their dreams are shattered after a snotty head cheerleader pushes them one step too far. This forces the Lunch Ladies to ask themselves - WWJD? What would Johnny do? Written by Clarissa Jacobson

WWJD?
2 July 2018 | by ferguson-6See all my reviews

Greetings again from the darkness. There is only one place where murder, mayhem, meals and Johnny Depp could all come together ... the school lunch room! A comedy-horror short film, if done well, is a certain hit at film festivals, and that's proving to be the case for this fun little gem from director J.M. Logan and writer Clarissa Jacobson.

Seretta (Donna Pieroni) and LouAnne (Mary Manofsky) are two long time lunch ladies who are beside themselves with excitement. See, they have just received notification that their Cheesy Burger Bites recipe won the contest for a Kids' Charity event sponsored by Johnny Depp. Seretta and LouAnne are such huge fans of Depp that they wear Depp t-shirts, Depp watches, and have a worn out DON JUAN DEMARCO movie poster on the wall. They are also convinced that winning this contest is going to lead directly to their hero hiring them as his personal chefs.

After a death by plunger (not plunging), the film reminds a bit of the 1982 classic EATING RAOUL, with a couple of nods to FARGO and THE BIG LEBOWSKI. It's a fun and clever little film that asks "WWJD" (What would Johnny do?).
