Product Details

Product Description


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

5.0 out of 5 stars Haven't Eaten at McDonald's Since. Jan. 31 2006
By Cori
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Want to stop eating Fast Food? See this movie!! Nov. 5 2004
By A Customer
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.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super Size Me Oct. 27 2004
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Content du produit, mais... June 29 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
J'aurais aimé avoir la version doublée en français car j'utilise ce film dans le cadre d'un cours de nutrition pour des étudiants. Je crois qu'on m'a livré une version au hasard, sans tenir compte de la langue qui était demandée...

4.0 out of 5 stars A clever vehicle for self promotion... And a valid if simplistic point
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. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting But Don't Take It Too Seriously
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. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for the classroom
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!
