  • Fixating on the fat rolls of underprivileged kids without mentioning class, the film is a more polished version of the greasy tale Morgan Spurlock's Super Size Me told from the inside out.

  • It's a decent summary of the issue, taking square aim at corporations and politicians who have made it easy for the citizenry to stuff its collective face with junk food and, even more damaging, sugar.

  • Director Stephanie Soechtig gathers activists, doctors, kids, lobbyists, parents, politicians, reporters and teachers -- all with different stakes.

  • Exposé against America's nutritional war on itself is informative, passionate, slightly regurgitated.

  • Thumbnail portraits of morbidly obese kids introduce a plaintive note to the argument, especially since, as the documentary notes, many school cafeterias are now indistinguishable from fast-food joints.

  • "Fed Up" gets to feeling like a special nightly news report. But as news reports go, it is an especially thorough and well-produced one, taking an in-depth look at America's worsening obesity epidemic and pointing fingers at culprits

    Food documentaries aren't anything new, especially within the last ten years of cautionary films warning of the dangers of unhealthy eating. Unlike many films that warn you of your own wrongdoing and ignorance, this Katie Couric produced documentary puts the blame on the actual culprit: food processers.

    Interesting documentary. Pretty close to Supersize Me in terms of being inspirational and making you want to change your eating habits. Though it's about childhood obesity in the synopsis (on Netflix, anyhow), you could really relate this to any age group. A 40 year old obviously doesn't have Pizza Hut in his school canteen, but he's more than likely got it across the road, and he's just as likely to make a bad choice Actually it opens your eyes to marketing and sugar addiction. I know it has inspired me to take the 10 day sugar free challenge (after I eat that box of Pop Tarts in the cupboard...). Sugar has sadly had me. In its grip since I was quite young....
