In 1986, a non-profit group named London Greenpeace (LGP) produced a leaflet called "What's Wrong with McDonalds?

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (4)

You can't help but take a little pleasure in watching jerk lawyers -- and an arrogant mega-corporation, with money and laws and seemingly the judge too on its side -- lose in every way imaginable.

An alarming if ultimately inspiring David-and-Goliath parable for today.

Everybody loves a good David & Goliath story, often doubly so when the story happens to be entirely factual and quite ironic.

McLibel made me want to boycott McDonald's, turn vegetarian and even punch a clown or two on principle. But most of all, it restored my faith that the power to shape public discourse really rests with the people and not the PR agents.

Way before Super-Size Me's time and way more legally involved, this gives a very interesting look into McDonald's soulless black heart

A crappily put together documentary about a rather interesting subject. McDonald's sues some activists in a British court for libel. They bring in top lawyers and others to lay out their case. The two activists defend themselves in the longest case in British history costing McDonald's millions of dollars.

I have mixed feelings about this. I was horrified to see the baby chicks being gassed. I also know that a low fiber/ high fat diet is not healthy for you. But I don't think these practices are limited to just McDonalds. If you really want to do something about it, become a vegatarian.

I only go to McDonalds once in a while as a treat, not every night like some lazy people! My mom told me how crappy their food was a long time ago, when I was a child.

I didn't understand the whining about the lack of creativity or the low pay, etc. It's freaking McDonalds for goodness sake! If you want to be creative, find a different line of work. If you want better money, stay in school.

I found this documentary rather one sided and recommend you watch "Super Size Me" instead. At least that was entertaining.
