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.
A very good documentary that attacks all the things you thought you knew about food.
Super Size Me is a documentary that follows Morgan Spurlock as he eats nothing but McDonald's for a week, to show the harmful effects to human body that this food has. This movie made me so, hungry.
The point of this movie was to give people a fair warning of the health risks that eating McDonald's food non-stop causes, but after watching it, all I could think of was a Big Mac with lettuce tomato cheese ketchup and pickles, with large fries and a large root beer. That's right, I love root beer.
Morgan Spurlock gains 25 pounds in just a month, and also faces serious issues like cholesterol and even wakes up in the middle of the night after…
mcdonalds is bad for you.. no shit..
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
this is kind of a modern classic. Morgan Spurlock is just inherently watchable for some reason and seeing him go from pretty average and healthy to fattish and very unhealthy over the course of a month is insanity.
yeah there are criticisms like he ate there more than most people would have at the time or he ate unnecessarily large portions every time or he could have chosen "healthier" options, but it's pretty clearly explained what he's doing and I don't think those criticisms hold much validity in the end.
sure, there are nits to pick, but pick them elsewhere.

Throughout my schooling history, I've been shown the beginning of Super Size Me probably for a greater amount of time than the full runtime of the movie. It is a favorite of teachers, and earns that respect.
Super Size Me is one of the better "hard-hitting" documentaries, focusing on McDonalds. What sets it apart is that instead of taking a purely informational or persuasive stance, the movie chronicles a man actually undergoing a test to see how bad McDonalds's food truly is. Witnessing a man actually go through a "McDiet" for a month is a lot more persuasive than simply being told about it, after all.
As far as documentaries go, Super Size Me has its information in order, using…
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?
