This rightly got a lot of public attention for a documentary. It was shocking to see what eating like crap will do to you.

Fascinating and shocking documentary charting Morgan Spurlock's decent into ill health with the aid of Ronald McDonald. Some disturbing home truths but maybe a little too close to the bone amuse (if that was even the intention).

Very informative and entertaining documentary. Funny to see how McDonald's really didn't change all that much after this film. I still don't eat there.

Super Size Me review

Daniel Corleone - wrote on 01/07/2012

Morgan Spurlock, an American independent filmmaker invests his time in getting the facts about fast food even to the point of being part of experiment himself. He has himself checked before indulging in a 30 day McDonald’s diet. Points viewed were the image of Ronald McDonald (more popular than Jesus in one scene), dollars used in marketing, and corporate exploitation of the public. A lot of people of were interviewed related to the food and medical industry. The soundtracks used were effective, amazing statistics uncovered and editing was effective. A few results from his 30 day diet were an 18% increase in body fat, massive cravings, headaches, mood swings, etc. Super Size Me aims to show that fast food is a big business that often times manipulates its marketing, we should have …

The absolute dumbest movie I have ever seen in my entire life, it nearly drained all the hope I had for humanity after I watched it. Have you ever wondered what would happen if you ate nothing but fast food for 30 days and made it a point NOT to get a certain amount of excersize each day? No? Neither has anyone else.

McDonalds food isn't supposed to be healthy, it isn't supposed to be consumed 24/7, it's supposed to be delicious (and fast...) and that's exactly what it is. Moron Turdlock points his finger at McDonalds when he should've been pointing it at each and every person who blames food for their obesity. Food isn't forcing you to eat it, you choose to, it's YOUR fault. For once in my life I would like to see someone take responsibility for their own actions.

Bold, Snarky, Informative

Morgan Spurlock put his life in danger by making this film and I believe he provided a significant evidence that fastfood is greatly detrimental to one's health. There are more than a handful of jaw-dropping statistics presented here but they were presented with snarky humor; I think that strategy helped make this film all the more memorable. I must say that after watching this picture, I stopped eating fastfood for three months straight. After that time period, its spell wore off... but not completely. Every time I crave fastfood or eat fastfood out of convenience, I always manage to think twice and half of the time, I decide against buying fastfood. This documentary is very strong but it could have been invincible if some of the special features made it into the film. For instance, the …
