Where to watch

Movie Info

In an instant, 29 million Americans became fat, out of shape and dangerously obese... and they did it without taking a single bite of food. It was all the result of a decision to change the national standard for obesity. The question is "What was behind a ruling to declare so many people to be fat? Was it political, financial or for the good of humankind?" You'll find out that diet companies have raked in huge profits because of the new standards - guidelines the weight loss industry helped structure. The answer lies in a new film by award-winning director Darryl Roberts who, in a follow-up to America The Beautiful, examines the cause of our country's obsession with dieting. America The Beautiful 2: The Thin Commandments also weighs in on the raging debate between doctors who say fat is healthy versus those who disagree. -- (C) Official Site

Critic Reviews for America The Beautiful 2: The Thin Commandments

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (5) | Fresh (3) | Rotten (7)

  • 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.

    Dec 1, 2011 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • No doubt, we the people are due for some lifestyle changes, but the film glosses some of the trickier obstacles to better health.

    Oct 14, 2011 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Self-serving exaltations underscore Mr. Roberts's, well, slender charisma. (His narration is strikingly wit-, humor- and charm-free.)

    Oct 12, 2011 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • A choppy, unfocused, intermittently compelling report on the tortured, fluctuating state of the national backside.

    Oct 11, 2011 | Full Review…
  • [Director Darryl] Roberts does not take himself very seriously, but there are some interesting facts that will make you think. [Full review in Spanish]
