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
Like Jaws kept you out of the water, Super Size Me will keep you away from fast food restaurants.
An interesting documentary. But it really just made me crave a Big Mac. I may or may not have missed the point.
admittedly the movie is pretty old now.. but i wasnt suprised and didnt learn anything. more of an american problem probably.
Nice idea for a documentary. More entertainment than informative.
Minus one star for using "The Blue Danube" with stomach surgery.

I remember watching this in Science in like Year 10 and laughing at the fact that his sex life suffered. But like that's some screwed up stuff. As a lot of people have said, Morgan's experiment is extreme but it's so interesting to see what he goes through. What we have here is an extremely entertaining and shocking documentary. However, although it has many valid points, it shouldn't necessarily be taken as real scientific research.
I remember this film came on dvd in a magazine once, or something. I thought it was pretty cool but obviously really rigged and flawed.
Pure fuckin' schlock.
An intersting documentary on the fast food business.
