It seems this film was made so a plethora of comparisons to the franchise's own foods could be made in terms of quality -- the DVD says "a good deal more to chew on here than any quarter pounder can provide". Let's just say however you feel about the food is how you'd feel about this film.

A little history behind the business of the fast food giant McDonalds. An interesting walk down memory lane of how McDonalds was started, by whom, and how a scrappy salesman co-opted it all. It is just a little sad to know the original inventors got screwed. Much like how the present day customers get screwed every time they consume any of the unhealthy foods served there. I think it should be renamed to McObesity, McDiabetes or McHeartAttack.

Workaday tale of American business practices: The Social Network with fries. Ultimately, neither Kroc, Keaton's portrayal of him, nor the story are all that interesting.

Keaton is great, but the film lacks teeth where it needs it. It portrays Kroc as neither a complete scumbag or a likable misconstrued businessman, and that indecisiveness makes The Founder feel a little flat.

I think there's an interesting story in this movie, but film itself is quite limited in scope and sanitises what is clearly the much darker underbelly of the whole thing. Sometimes it felt like it could be more like The Social Network (2010), and maybe it could have been under a different writer or director, but yeah, it just wasn't that interesting. Keaton and the rest of the cast are fine. It wasn't a bad movie, but I feel like there was potential for it to be great.

The familiar rising business biopic is given a bit of an interesting twist with the compelling Kroc vs. McDonalds dynamic that pits the former's growing greed and business savvy against the conservative and sympathetic simplicity of the latter, but it still feels a little conventional and skimmed-over. All told though, it's a solidly acted story that expertly fleshes out its main characters with well-crafted scenes (see Ray's bookending monologues; the brothers telling their story at dinner).

For me I had no idea about how McDonald's first came about, I was simply just interested in the backstory of it. However, I found this to be one of the most interesting and outright disgusting movies of all time. Keaton killed it as Kroc, however I never found myself hating someone so much. Even if it isn't completely true to its material, I felt for the brothers, and it shows how scummy business can be and what some will go to just to make money. Interesting, but yet will never watch again.

Two Michael Keaton vehicles back to back....I must be crazy! So Keaton goes from Batman to Birdman, then plays another type of bird man, as the Vulture, then plays a different type of "vulture" in this film, and if you look at the poster, it appears that he has a set of red wings. It's official...Illuminati confirmed.

Really fun little story, but just makes you more and more angry as it moves along. Keaton is as great as I've come to expect from him, but the supporting cast was a charm as well. Probably the best bit was the brothers telling the story of how they really started the whole business. Also, fuck Ray Kroc

Well made but fairly dry at times. It's mostly a portrayal of a vicious asshole and I am not sure if he's supposed to be likeable, but he isn't.
