Our best guess for you: 3.6 stars

Average of 4712 ratings: 3.6 Stars

2004 M Contains adult themes.

A film of epic portions.

The challenge: Nothing but McDonalds for 30 days, breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Three rules:

- 1. Only eat what is available over the counter (water included!)

- 2. Must supersize if offered

- 3. Eat everything on the menu at least once.

Documentary maker Morgan Spurlock's fast food odyssey Super Size Me is the tale of one man's journey through a culinary wasteland of modern fast food. Featuring harrowing visits to the doctor, interviews with nutritionists and overflowing with Big Macs, this is compelling viewing for anyone who's ever wondered if man could live on fast food alone.

Super Size Me is a satirical jab in the stomach for the fast food giants, overstuffed with fat and facts about a billion-dollar industry besieged by doctors, lawyers and nutritionists alike. "Would you like fries with that?" will never sound the same!

Before you go to McDonalds, put in this DVD, select chapter 8 and watch. That pretty much sums up this documentary. It's entertaining, it's informative, it's disturbing. If you're into self destruction... Read more

I really liked this movie. It was informative as well as entertaining and I will proberly never see junk food the same way ever again. Overall I would recommend it to everyone and any age. I really felt for the guy by the end. What an effort.

A very entertaining, highly informative - and therefore "shocking" - film, SuperSize Me is a "Michael Moore style" documentary on the role that "McDonalds" - of the 'Golden Arches' - and other 'fast-food'... Read more

This is a film that offers a little bit of everything -- a healthy dose of humour, some hard facts about American (and, to an increasing extent, New Zealand) food and way of life, as well as a good... Read more

It discusses a heavy subject, but they manage to keep it light and fun. A must see for everybody.

Amusing, grotesque, but misses too many points IMO. Should have nailed the whole mcfood concept & the political & socioeconomic structure that spawned it to the wall but never seems to drop the training wheels & go for blood. Adequate.
