In SUPER SIZE ME, filmmaker Morgan Spurlock unravels the American obesity epidemic by interviewing experts nationwide and by subjecting himself to a McDonald's-only diet for thirty days straight. His Sundance award-winning and Academy Award-nominated documentary is as entertaining as it is horrifying as it dives into corporate responsibility, nutritional education, school lunch programs and how we as a nation are eating ourselves to death. "For 30 days, Morgan Spurlock consumed nothing but food from McDonald's, an experiment in bad living that frames a jaunty critique of junk gastronomy and corporate power. Like a thinner, less aggressive Michael Moore, the director talks to consumers, experts and food-industry flacks, weaving alarming statistics about rampant obesity with visits to the doctor and double-quarter-pounder-with-cheese combo meals. The film is an entertaining statement of the obvious, though its big questions—do corporations serve our need or enslave our bodies and soul?, are public health problems caused by capitalist rapacity or personal choice?—are not as simple as Mr. Spurlock would have us believe." —A.O. Scott, The New York Times

Spurlock wastes an opportunity to do something great, by using lots of speculation, exaggeration, and about the worst scientific method imaginable.
