Product Description

Amazon.ca

Filmmaker Morgan Spurlock, rejected five times by the USC film school, won the best director award at the 2004 Sundance Film Festival for this alarmingly personal investigation into the health hazards wreaked by our fast food nation. Under extensive medical supervision, Spurlock subjects himself to a steady diet of McDonald's cuisine for 30 days just to see what happens. In less than a week, his ordinarily fit body and equilibrium undergo dark and ugly changes: Spurlock grows fat, his cholesterol rockets north, his organs take a beating, and he becomes subject to headaches, mood swings, symptoms of addiction, and lessened sexual energy. The gimmick is too obvious to sustain a feature documentary; Spurlock actually spends most of the film probing insidious ways that fast food companies worm their way into school lunchrooms and the hearts of young children who spend hours in McDonald's playrooms. French fries never looked more nauseating. --Tom Keogh

Sure - lots and lots of exercise would offset alot of the evils of this kind of diet. The TRUTH? People aren't doing lots and lots of exercise and they are still subjecting themselves to the health-less meals provided by McDonalds.
I haven't been able to eat there since. I always knew it wasn't healthy food - but seeing it so graphically protrayed was a real eye opener. I recommend this movie to everyone I talk to. It is entertaining and carries a powerful message. We can't keep eating the way we have been or our lives are destined to obesity and lack of health. Too bad the majority still don't get it.

Before I saw this movie I used to eat Burger King at least twice a week. Since seeing in on June 9, 2004 I haven't had any fast food and I have lost at least 15 pounds. If you don't stop eating fast food after seeing this show, you have a problem. Great show.

You will never eat fast food again after you see this chilling tale of how easily you can get fat and unhealthy on a fast food diet.

I have seen this movie and would recommend it to anyone. It is a must buy. Filled with research that will make you think twice before you ever "Supersize" anything ever again.

This is truly one of the best "documentaries" I have ever seen. You'll be amazed at all the truth that comes out of this movie. It's not even to say it's a biased opinion of what fast food does to you, it's the truth about what is does to you. I recomend this movie to everyone whether you eat fast food all the time, or never at all, it's enjoyable for everyone.

Maybe I'm just going to end up alienating everyone here, but I do think that both the critics and the fans of this film have valid points. So I'm going to take the approach that there are really two levels on which we need to look at "Super Size Me".

First, I take my hat off to the filmmakers simply as businesspeople. I hope that doesn't sound too cynical, but honestly, I do. This is a film that could have been - and very likely was - made on a zero budget. Or something very close to zero, at any rate. And yet it's obviously been a huge international hit, doubtless raking in moolah by the truckload. The result? An ROI (return on investment) approaching infinity. McDonalds themselves should be taking notes from this guy!

Not bad for someone whose business as a personal trainer was apparently in the process of going under.

Now for the actual message of the film. Is putting one man on a McDonalds-only diet a simplistic way of addressing the very real and very serious obesity epidemic plaguing not only America, but also the entire developed world? Of course it is! Nevertheless, there is a valid underlying point here. The proliferation of this kind of diet, and the power of the food industry to promote this diet unhindered, actually do represent serious social, medical, and ultimately even economic problems. Yes, poor health is an enormous drain on our economy.

As a way of addressing these problems, this film has all the depth and rigor of a sound bite. Whether you like progressive politics or not, "Super Size Me" doesn't even approach the level of analysis we get in films like

This is an interesting view, especially in conjunction with his book "Don't Eat This Book". The extras including interview with Eric Schlosser help make this worth the price. Some people get way too serious about these kind of documentaries. I am sure Morgan & Eric both think our eating habits & restaurants are much worse in general because of McDonald's & similar but clearly this is not advocating shutting down McDonald's or similar. It is unlikely any otherwise sane person would eat nothing but fast food chain food for 30 days. Only a doucumantary maker. Read the book too. By that account he came very close to not sticking to this for the 30 days. I don't eat a lot at McDonald's, even when they send out coupons, but I don't kid mysewlf that Wendy's, Burger King or even Arby's are much healthier. Eric Schlosser reccomends seeking out local, non-chain restaurants for your burgers & such if you must eat burgers. Plenty around, not trying to have one world, one taste. Moderation is the key, really. Read the book, as Morgan says, the Subway guy did not lose weight via Subs alone. He exercised, ate well (i. e. not just Subway sandwiches) & ate less. There are lots of ways to be healthy & even more ways to be unhealthy. Don't Eat This Book : Fast Food and the Supersizing of America

I love it! The lessons plans are well constructed and the teacher's guide is very explicit. I recommend this hands-on DVD to all you teachers out there!
