  • A steady of stream of data is nothing compared to the individual stories this documentary tells, and how Nation contextualizes these problems within greater historical trends.

  • Spending four hours on the couch watching it certainly ought to open some eyes.

    Top Critic
  • Weight pulls no punches, spares neither the multibillion-dollar food and advertising industries nor public officials for not only failing to fix the problem but actually making it worse.

    August 31, 2012 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…
  • It is an educational - but stern - warning about what the consequences will be if we don't confront this nationwide problem now.
