For all the film's lecturing about the rise in diabetes and good and bad fats, you suspect that its director is secretly just having a laugh with the whole thing.

A wonderful achievement -- entertaining, engrossing, and never far from grossing out.

As entertaining as Super Size Me sometimes is, I'm not sure what Spurlock's escapade really accomplishes, except to emphasize that eating 5,000 calories a day, and exercising little, is bad for you.

Entertaining and informative.

Although Spurlock's movie is thought-provoking and downright funny, he doesn't exactly play fair.

Super Size Me can be frivolous and slightly smug, but it certainly puts the question of America's health squarely on the table -- and in a wonderfully entertaining way.

Blatantly unfair and completely winning documentary.

Those who see the film will think twice before succumbing to that next Big Mac attack.
May 14, 2004
A gimmick film that uses an upbeat style to create laughs, and, in truth, a distaste for fast food.
May 13, 2004
What makes all this work is that the charming Mr. Spurlock, unlike combative Michael Moore, is winning, witty and completely at ease before the camera.

In a way it functions as the mental, emotional, and aesthetic equivalent of junk food; two hours after you see it, you're hungry again, even though your brain has gotten fatter.
May 7, 2004
An anti-junk-food screed that manages to entertain even as it informs and alarms.
May 7, 2004
A compelling cautionary tale hot-wired to your gag reflex.
May 7, 2004
While not the all-encompassing, hard-facts indictment Fast Food Nation readers might hope for, this more entertainment-oriented package does throw in enough disturbing figures and informative side trips to provide an educational-value meal.

If you feel hungry for fast food after seeing this, you must enjoy living dangerously.
May 7, 2004
Provides plenty of food for thought.
