Forks Over Knives Reviews

Sarah Sluis
Film Journal International

Enthusiastic but scattered documentary advocates a plant-based diet to prevent and reverse chronic disease. Sure to inspire lots of post-movie chatter.

There's nothing that a person could learn from watching this that they couldn't learn from a magazine article.

It lacks the authority, simple displays of hard numbers, contrary voices and the like, that we need from a documentary this provocative.

Metro Times (Detroit, MI)

...a compelling argument housed in a deathly dull package; the kind of flavorless cooking that makes some folks run screaming in terror from a plate of steamed broccoli.

"Forks Over Knives" works really hard to bring you around to its way of thinking, but it's really preaching to the faithful.

...irritation at the film's artless repetition shades into worry over its cult-like monomania.

Essentially a tepid digest of the most persuasive nutritional arguments against the ingestion of flesh and dairy.

As it stands, "Forks" is an interesting and informative health lecture that's sandwiched into a dry, repetitive documentary.

Capital Times (Madison, WI)

I'm guessing that after every screening of "Forks Over Knives," the theater is littered with half-empty popcorn boxes and unfinished containers of soda.

Sound advice, perhaps, but it's presented in deadly dull fashion -- talking heads and academic charts -- reminiscent of an infomercial.

Instead of preaching, why don't the nutrition Nazis figure out a way to make plant-based foods taste better? You are never going to force an entire population to live on spinach.

[A] tightly constructed, thoroughly convincing, and dull-as-dirt documentary.

Call me a contrarian, but I came out of Forks Over Knives -- a documentary advocating the benefits of vegetarianism -- ready to eat a pony out of spite.

A vegetarian infomercial in the guise of a feature documentary.

The bottom line: I am convinced this message is true. A plant-based whole foods diet is healthy.

Makes effective use of case studies and graphs to build a convincing, if inevitably simplified, argument for better living through fresh produce.

Although Fulkerson might have balanced his polemics with some other opinions, Forks over Knives still serves up plenty of food for thought.
