Movie Info

Director Morgan Spurlock's social experiment in fast-food gastronomy sees him attempting to subsist uniquely on food from the McDonald's menu for an entire month. In the process his weight balloons, his energy level plummets and he experiences all sorts of unexpected -- and terrifying -- side effects. He also examines the corporate giant's growing role in the lives of American consumers and explores its methods of indoctrinating young people and its contribution to America's obesity epidemic.

Audience Reviews for Super Size Me

    An open eye documentary.

    Super Size Me rises far above most cautionary food documentaries thanks to its entertaining (and at the same time shocking and frightening) likable leading man's 30-day McDonald's binge, which dilutes the film's excess of standard facts and statistics and makes Super Size Me stand out in an overly-saturated subgenre.

    Some scenes feel a bit unnecessary , but, in general, this is a very interesting (and disgusting) documentary about McDonalds.

    Super Size Me is not a great documentary, but it definitely is a documentary that needs to be seen. Director Morgan Spurlock eats a diet of McDonald's for 30 days. Though the film is an an interesting idea, I found Spurlock's attempt to be impulsive. Though I understand why he did it, his results at the end of the month were due to the fact that he didn't exercise and he didn't do any other physical activity. Spurloch though shows how eating a lot of fast food with no exercise can damage the body in a very entertaining way. The film is flawed of course, but it does succeed at delivering good entertainment. If anyone would do what Spurlock did in this film, they'd end up the same way. This is a good documentary, but it shouldn't be construed as a valid documentary on the subject only for the fact that Morgan Spurlock deliberately did this to himself. The film is entertaining, and is an eye opener, however the film is full of holes, one being the fact that Morgan Spurlock didn't exercise. An entertaining glimpse on obesity, Super Size Me is a good documentary, but is also reckless in proving the arguments. For what it is, the film is entertaining, as we see Morgan Spurlock enduring.his McDonald's diet to hilarious results. The film does a good job at exposing obesity, but in the end it plays out more like a comedy by delivering a serious subject matter. Either way you look at it, Super Size Me is worth watching. Flawed, but entertaining.
