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.

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...

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

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.

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.

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.
