...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.

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.

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.

Instead of preaching, why don't the nutrition Nazis figure out a way to make plant-based foods taste better? You are never going to force an entire population to live on spinach.

It lacks the authority, simple displays of hard numbers, contrary voices and the like, that we need from a documentary this provocative.

Essentially a tepid digest of the most persuasive nutritional arguments against the ingestion of flesh and dairy.

Sound advice, perhaps, but it's presented in deadly dull fashion -- talking heads and academic charts -- reminiscent of an infomercial.
