Audience Reviews for Fat Head
Feb 21, 2013In response to Morgan Spurlock's faux documentary about fast food, Fat Head examines the truth about nutrition and dieting in America. Much of the film discusses the corruption in government and its unscientific assessment of obesity and what constitutes a healthy diet. But the film also examines the disinformation and inconsistences put forth in Super Size Me. However, at times too many facts and figures are thrown out, and it feel like an information dump. And this is part of a larger structural problem that the film has in creating a narrative. Still, Fat Head is a fascinating expose on how healthy living is being sold to Americans and the politics that are being played.Dann M Super Reviewer
Mar 20, 2011I found this to be an interesting rebuttal to Supersize Me. Although, like most of these documentaries, it sometimes tends to go a little overboard to get their point across. It does give a good, detailed scientific explaination about how blood sugars, carbs, cholesterol and fat work in our bodies; without becoming a borefest. It gives "food for thought" (pun intended). The biggest statement this movie makes is that neither government nor any other agency should tell people how to eat. I found it to be educationally fun.nefnie l Super Reviewer
Mar 18, 2011its ok but far too long for the type of documentary it was, it was just feeding information with boring slideshow type images and people talking. Felt like something you'd be watching in a high school freshman class...and it actually got annoying as if he was talking down to you.. I Think he also made some facts that aren't true.. some parts were just very annoying like where it says in some annoying voice "the guy from cspi" it was childish and stupid... and it seemed to happen alot... this movie sucks compared to supersize mePaul A Super Reviewer
