Super Size Me
The first ever reality-based movie ... everything begins and ends in 30 days!
Morgan Spurlock subjects himself to a diet based only on McDonald's fast food three times a day for thirty days without exercising to try to prove why so many Americans are fat or obese. He submits himself to a complete check-up by three doctors, comparing his weight along the way, resulting in a scary conclusion.
rando americans: hey we ate your food and we got really sick
mcdonalds: did you eat it every single day? 10+ times a week? you really shouldn't. everything in moderation people.
morgan: i bet if i eat it every day for every meal i'll get really sick!
mcdonalds: yeah probably. don't do that.
morgan: look guys! i conducted a really fucking stupid experiment where i ate fast food for every single meal and put my life in danger
mcdonalds: wow that's the stupidest thing we've ever heard
morgan: mcdonalds is literally satan, guys
people: wow really made me think
can't wait for the anti-smoking lobby to come up with some equally hot bullshit. i'm in the mood for some in-n-out. see ya guys.
Just listen to me for a brief moment Morgan. That is not how you conduct a valid research. Basically a shock doc wherein principal scientific methods are deliberately disregarded, or even falsified, in order to fabricate a conclusion everyone already knew: that fast-food is unhealthy, especially when eating loads and loads of it.

Gee, if you're a physically fit vegetarian and suddenly start eating nothing but fast food and stop exercising you're gonna get fat and sick? No shit, Spurlock!
I respect what this documentary is trying to do, and obesity is most definitely an important issue. But there are enough flaws in Spurlock's experiment that I just can't overlook
Morgan Spurlock is a ginger mustachioed rube
One misplaced red hair from the balding Pube
Disingenuously capitalizing on other people's pain
To prove a point already established in vain
He eats some burgers, he eats some fries
He takes things further and pretends to almost die
An entire month of only Mickey D's
Brings that cunt down to his knees
He vomits, he bitches, he laughs, he gets sick
His ugly vegan girlfriend gets fed up with his McShit
He entertains, but instead of a point to prove
All Mr. Spurlock does is make Pube want fast food
I wonder what would happen to my health if the only input to my brain was watching this abysmal film all day every day for a month?
another movie i watched at school
i should make a list for those
I am NOT up to the challenge in doing it but this film is honestly a good one to watch. At the time of its release in May, 2004 director Morgan Spurlock an independent film maker. At $65,000, it is considered to be a low budget film.
Spurlock's film follows a 30-day period from February 1 to March 2, 2003, during which he ate only McDonald's food. The film documents this lifestyle's drastic effect on Spurlock's physical and psychological well-being, and explores the fast food industry's corporate influence, including how it encourages poor nutrition for its own profit.
Spurlock ate at McDonald's restaurants three times per day, eating every item on the chain's menu at least once. Spurlock consumed an…
IT WAS FAKE LADS
In currently studying factual programming at college. This film was brought up. I've seen it many times before and I think it's so entertains to see. Every time I flick it on I always look forward to it and by the end I always feel never eating McDonald's again.
I just can't get enough of films in the US during the early 2000's. I don't know why.

It's very interesting to rewatch Super Size Me after working at McDonald's, but it's even more interesting when you realize the documentary is about so much more than the damage of fast food.
It's not bad as a documentary, but you can't help but feel that it's biased, and that it's not that fun, both for you or for Super Size Him.
Independent documentaries denouncing any harm in society are always welcome. In here we have one in which the subject matter is relevant, but I have been exaggerated.
Of course we know that fast foods are bad, fattening and cause disease, but until then even if you drink a lot of water constantly, you'll also have problems. The main problem is the amount of times you eat this "drug". Mc'donalds is not a healthy food, we all know that even those who consume faithfully. You must be very stupid to say that some fast foods are healthy.
It is bad if consumed in large scale. So I think that was an exaggeration in this documentary, even it being relevant. No one…
This is the reason I don't eat McDonalds anymore.
Can't tell if satire or not.
Working on adding notes for all of them.
Almost any movie directed…
