Critic Reviews for America The Beautiful 2: The Thin Commandments

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (6)

Self-promoting physicians, shrinks, bureaucrats, and fashion models blather on about eating issues, yet Roberts glosses over the only real solution to weight gain: balanced nutrition combined with exercise.

If you're trying to lose weight, this movie will probably not help you , but it reflects the stories of a lot of our lives.

No doubt, we the people are due for some lifestyle changes, but the film glosses some of the trickier obstacles to better health.

New York Times
Top Critic

A choppy, unfocused, intermittently compelling report on the tortured, fluctuating state of the national backside.

RedEye

The look of the film reflects a miniscule budget, but it gets points for modesty and a keen sense of humor.

Director Darryl Roberts evokes heartfelt responses about America's obsession with dieting.
