cholesterol excessively high, the blood fats excessively is high, the uric acid, the pain
wind, the diabetes, the hypertension, the heart disease, the cardiovascular disease, the
stroke, the joint sickness . In Mai P'an reported in the middle of this movie directs
Morgan history Pollack (Morgan Spurlock) to do the experiment by oneself by own

※Introduce the movie
Super Size ME
Why are Americans so fat? Find out in Super Size Me, a tongue in-cheek - and
burger in hand -- look at the legal, financial and physical costs of America's hunger
for fast food.
Ominously, 37% of American children and adolescents are carrying too much fat
and 2 out of every three adults are overweight or obese. Is it our fault for lacking
self-control, or are the fast-food corporations to blame?
Filmmaker Morgan Spurlock hit the road and interviewed experts in 20 U.S. cities,
including Houston, the "Fattest City" in America. From Surgeon Generals to gym
teachers, cooks to kids, lawmakers to legislators, these authorities shared their
research, opinions and "gut feelings" on our ever-expanding girth.
During the journey, Spurlock also put his own body on the line, living on nothing
but McDonald's for an entire month with three simple rules:
1) No options: he could only eat what was available over the counter (water included!)
2) No supersizing unless offered
3) No excuses: he had to eat every item on the menu at least once
It all adds up to a fat food bill, harrowing visits to the doctor, and compelling
viewing for anyone who's ever wondered if man could live on fast food alone.
The film explores the horror of school lunch programs, declining health and
physical education classes, food addictions and the extreme measures people take to
lose weight and regain their health.
Super Size Me is a satirical jab in the stomach, overstuffed with fat and facts about
the billion-dollar industry besieged by doctors, lawyers and nutritionists alike.
"Would you like fries with that?" will never sound the same!
Morgan Spurlock's anecdotal foray into junk food and its devestating effect on
American health and culture is itself junk science. But it is the junk science we all
dream about doing ourselves regardless of the holes in the argument It is fun,
informative, heart rendering (no pun intended) and well intentioned. Watching him
balloon almost 25lbs. in 30 days of McDonald's only fare is a frightening
condemnation of the commercialization which has twisted the natural eating process.
For many people it is now a life threatening duel with abundant, highly processed
mush, served up in the most gruesome of fashions (e.g. Chicken McNuggets); the
indiginity of which we have become immune to. This film exposes a slice of
globalization at its worst. Spurlock's quirky, homespun personality is the real star of
"Super Size Me" though, not his research or metheods. Eating 5,000 calories of
ANYTHING would have resulted in the same weight gain, I'm sure, but he puts such
an "oh shucks" spin on his infectious narration and staring role you don't want him to
be wrong regardless. But to me, his proposition that a well financed and ill intentioned
marketing blitz by McDonald's and other suppliers of life threatening human silage
have brought us to our knees, health wise, is crystal clear and almost irrefutable;
anecdotal or not. Dean Romano [email protected]
If nothing else, Super Size Me's director Morgan Spurlock has emerged as a threat
to the supremacy of at least one heavyweight: Michael Moore. Although his
documentary technique owes much to Moore's muckraking, occasionally whimsical
style (particularly in the series TV Nation and The Awful Truth), Spurlock's film
unveils a disciple on the cusp of exceeding his master. Released in the US before
Moore's more-generously budgeted, better-hyped but ultimately scattershot and
sloppy Fahrenheit 9/11, Super Size Me offers a rigorously argued portion of
investigative journalism that hits the spot, served up with a smile by Spurlock - a far
more likeable, seemingly less ego-driven presence than Moore.
Imposing on himself the challenge to eat nothing but McDonald's food for 30 days,
Spurlock uses Jackass-style masochistic, extreme sportsmanship spirit (without the
athletic prowess, since he pledges to exercise as little as possible) to illustrate how
obesity and other health problems are related to corporate greed. Viewers should be
warned this is not a pretty sight. There's the now-infamous scene of Spurlock
vomiting after his first super-sized meal and footage of a man having stomach surgery,
both of which might induce nausea in squeamish spectators. Plus Spurlock has
cameraman Scott Ambrozy get so close up while he's eating, it borders on endoscopy.
The result is more than just a rousing indictment of the famously litigious fast-food
giant (which has not sued Spurlock, though its marketing departments have
aggressively rebutted the film). High-powered lobbyists, laissez-faire governments
and lazy, carb-guzzling citizens are all proved complicit in worldwide nutritional
suicide. Moreover, the victims are not just adults, like Spurlock and the more than
fully grown McDonald's devotees he meets, who choose to eat the stuff cognisant of
its dangers: Spurlock lays out the sinister marketing methods used by the burger
merchants to target children. Flashing up the face of the company's mascot Ronald
McDonald, Spurlock slyly slips Curtis Mayfield's 'Pusher Man' on the soundtrack.
Nevertheless, it's the film and its hero's honest approach that make the package so
persuasive. Some of that might be put down to cheap-and-cheerful aesthetics. The
digitally shot picture, all muffled sound and grainy texture, spotty as Spurlock by the
end of the affair, looks like it was made for the price of a few thousand Happy Meals
(reportedly the budget was $65,000), but is still visually interesting, with factoids
tickertaped across the screen and split-screen effects for a few eye-catching montages.
While Spurlock never disguises his contempt for McDonald's methods, he
winningly admits that eating their food every day, three times a day, is every
eight-year-old's dream come true. It's to his further credit that his girlfriend Alex is
shown reporting a decline in his sexual performance since he started shovelling in the
fries. Unlike Moore, who likes to make a big fuss of doorstepping corporate and
political headquarters with a camera crew in tow, Spurlock shows himself quietly
sitting in his own office repeatedly trying to get an interview with McDonald's
Orwellian-titled Head of Corporate Communication and Social Responsibility. Most
horrifying is the concluding M&M® McFlurry® of statistics (more than a million
animals are eaten every hour in the US, for example) - that and the scene of Spurlock
upchucking his dinner in the restaurant car park, his first inkling that the whole ordeal
might not be as much fun as an eight-year-old would imagine.
