Summary: Why are Americans so fat? Find out in Super Size Me, a tongue in-cheek - and burger in hand -- look at the legal, financial and physical costs of America's hunger for fast food. (Samuel Goldwyn Films)
Generally pretty bad. This man takes needless risks to show something that should have been already in the forefront of the American zeitgeist: when you eat a lot of fatty, highly processed foods, your body hates you! Wow! Who'da thunk it?
On a technical level, "Super Size Me" is okay. It looks nice and the pacing is good. However, I don't think it really told anyone anything that they didn't already know. "So, you're telling me that if I solely ate McDonald's food for 30 days, I'd experience ADVERSE HEALTH EFFECTS?! No shit, Spurlock!" (Heh, like what I did there? God, I hate myself.) If you're interested in take-downs of the fast food industry, you'd really be better off reading Eric Schlosser's "Fast Food Nation".
Successful in that I no longer wanted to eat at McDonald's for a few months, which was probably a very good thing considering the only fast food in the town I am from is McDonald's. Admittedly though, eating McD's every meal of every day for a month is probably the worst way to prove its unhealthy because everybody knows. Thats like getting addicted to meth to prove the negative effects on your health from it.
Sickening, but well-done. Ofcourse everyone knows McDonalds food is bad, but here it shows how bad it is to a healthy human-being in a few weeks. I already hated fast food, but hate it even more after this documentary
