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.
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
Like Jaws kept you out of the water, Super Size Me will keep you away from fast food restaurants.
I hate fast food.
I hate that my country is blatantly trying to kill me.
I remember seeing this documentary in high school and not paying attention. I was so excited when I found it on Netflix so I could actually divulge in this massive, controversial, epic of a documentary, and finally watch it properly and the way it deserved.
It's incredible. It's informative (like true documentary). It's truthful. It's real. It's raw. It's factual. Everyone should watch it, everyone should take it seriously and everyone should obey it!!! If we stop buying it, they will hopefully -- one day -- stop producing it.
Although self indulgent at times, this is a great display of subversive filmmaking against a huge corporation that ultimately, cinematically, and historically proved successful.
I tend to believe it. Plus it was damn entertaining. So, whats not to like?
Although it has been criticized for stretching the truth a bit, Super Size Me is still a damn funny and informative documentary that really makes you think about the state of this country's health, even twelve years after its release.
this both made me so hungry and so repulsed
6th time watching this film and it still holds up.
Eating a lot of fast food is bad, kids.
That sentence is the teaching of Super Size Me, the documentary that shook the world at its Sundance release, even to the point of reportedly causing McDonald's to end its Super Size option, and is a perennial favorite of Health class teachers that don't want to work for three days. Through its history there has been much discussion over its lesson, how accurate the evidence given is, if its a worthwhile film or just a run of the mill shock doc, and several more questions that would be apt to discuss in this review, but there's a specific one that I've really thought about when writing this. How can, and should…
This is an entertaining look into the epidemic of obesity. I'm aware there have been several changes in the major fast food chains since its release but it was an overall interesting experiment with hard facts to back up his claim. It's not necessarily a perfect setup, but it does raise concern which was the overall point. This shit is horrible for you. It's common knowledge, for sure, yet obesity and diabetes still continues to grow, especially with children which these chains are targeting. I would know since I used to work and manage at some of them years ago. All they care about, like everything else, is a profit. Selling a harmful hamburger/slice of pizza/taco for a dollar when…
Morgan Spurlock's documentary may be somewhat misleading on the effects of fast food and what society can do about it. At least as far as most people don't eat three meals a day for four straight weeks. That said, it was eye-opening for many the fact that McDonalds has been losing money for three years straight now due to our more health conscious society. But most important of all, this documentary is quite entertaining and funny.
