Movie Info

Since Spurlock's long-overdue indictment of the fast food industry in 2004, healthy menu options have become a popular trend, buoyed by clever marketing buzzwords such as organic, artisan, and all-natural. But does any of this really translate to improved alternatives for consumers? In his signature style, Spurlock creates his own fast-food chain from the ground up; he rents space at a chicken farm, conceives a menu, and hires a savvy marketing team to craft a brand that will appeal to health-minded customers. Recognizing how simple it is to follow the FDA's absurdly vague guidelines for applying terms like "free-range" to the food you serve, he opens Holy Chicken!, a restaurant peddling convenience fare under the guise of being better for you. Though he is overtly transparent about the ruse, will anyone actually notice?


Critic Reviews for Super Size Me 2: Holy Chicken!

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (5)

You'll probably walk away from Super Size Me 2: Holy Chicken! shivering with disgust and wondering how you can go on living in a world as gross and inhumane as ours.

"Super Size Me 2" is half a good movie, because it teaches you something. But maybe not enough. Spurlock, as instrumental as he has been in putting these issues on the table, doesn't seem to fully get what his own movie is about.

Neither of the "Super-Size Me" movies is fine art, but there's a certain artfulness with which they're assembled.

Jaunty but thought-provoking ...

Unless you're partial to Spurlock's fluffy style of cutesy, self-satisfied juxtaposition, music cues, narration, animation, man-on-the-street interviews, and on-screen text, there's not much of value that you couldn't just pick up from a good article.
