For all its aesthetic deficiencies and self-promotional aspects, it at least provides a valuable and important message.

"Fat, Sick" may be no great shakes as a movie, but as an ad for Mr. Cross's wellness program its now-healthy heart is in the right place.

Blithely ignoring socioeconomic factors, Cross places responsibility for good nutrition squarely on human willpower.

Virtually every documentary cliché from the past decade finds its way into this account of director Joe Cross's weight-loss odyssey, a retread-reversal of Super Size Me right down to the cheesy animation.
