Summary, etc.:
"Six and a half years ago, filmmaker Morgan Spurlock went on a quest to expose the obesity problem facing America and to show how fast food restaurants (and one in particular) have played their part in this epidemic. This is a film that wiped the term 'super size' off the menus at McDonald's and helped start a revolution in health care that still exists today ... Morgan unravels the American obesity problem by interviewing experts nationwide and by subjecting himself to a 'McDonald's only' diet for thirty days straight ... [The] feature ... dives into corporate responsibility, nutritional education, school lunch programs and how we as a nation are eating ourselves to death"--Container.
