May affect how you eat and will serve as a rude awakening...

I'm willing to believe Spurlock's hypothesis ... but someday I'd like to see a well-researched documentary as lively as this one on the harmful effects of pseudo-science in the media.

Through the use of quirky art work, animation, a barrage of facts and figures, plus an incredibly dry wit, Spurlock shines a light on America's attitudes to weight gain.

The 'What Would Jesus Buy?' project, broader than digestion issues, is the brainchild of Morgan Spurlock, who in a less spiritual frame of mind, lost the junk food battle of the bulge against McDonald's with this high calorie investigative documentary.

Underscores the need for individuals to take responsibility for their own health, and it does so in a frequently humorous and self-deprecating way. Plenty of food for thought.

January 29, 2005's unfortunate that the place of pride belongs to Spurlock's self-mortification.

Spurlock's adventure in not-so-fine dining may be extreme, but it makes its point in a shocking way...

One of only a handful of select films that I can recall as being as important as it is entertaining.

Instead of making a calm, reasonable case, Spurlock dazzles us with sensational details. [But] most of his arguments are properly persuasive.

It's the film and its hero's honest approach that make the package so persuasive.

Every schoolchild should be brought to see it - with no popcorn during or burgers afterwards.

Super Size Me is, on one level, a cinematic stunt in the tradition of Michael Moore's populist, anti-corporate crusades.
