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

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.

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

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

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

A vegetarian infomercial in the guise of a feature documentary.

...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.

Could a movie save your life? Forks Over Knives is a documentary willing to try as it examines diet and degenerative disease.

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.

Movies are like food. There are popcorn pictures that entertain you and the spinach movies that are good for you. In more ways than one, Forks Over Knives is a spinach flick.

Much of this information, about meat being bad, plants being good, has been covered before, but Fulkerson brings a precision and a clarity to his presentation that hits hard as it explodes myths while also introducing startling facts, comforting and not

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

The radical notion at the heart of the acclaimed doc "Forks Over Knives" is that eating animals and animal-produced foods has costs -- on our economy, our health-care system and on ourselves.
