In this hilarious yet informative documentary, debut director Morgan Spurlock makes himself the victim of a cruel experiment: he puts himself on a 30-day diet of nothing but McDonald's food. Eating three meals a day exclusively from McDonald's, Spurlock's health quickly deteriorates. The film documents the process from beginning to end, with Spurlock and his doctors making observations and monitoring the changes to his energy level, moods, liver and kidney function, and obviously his weight. As viewers might predict, Spurlock gains weight at an alarming rate, and during this process he offers a shocking lesson about the serious problem of obesity in America. Clearly McDonald's receives the brunt of the blame, as Spurlock shows how the fast-food restaurant directs its advertising at small children, who are converted into faithful consumers of the brand--and its free toy giveaways, bright colors, and Ronald McDonald clown--for life. Spurlock also examines the quality of the food itself, showing the processes by which favorite products like McNuggets are made. He also shows the proliferation of McDonald's chains both in the U.S. and worldwide. Meanwhile, Spurlock's girlfriend--a vegan chef--observes Spurlock's experiment with disgust and disdain, providing one of many comic elements to the film. Educational, fun, and at times downright gross, SUPER SIZE ME takes a different approach to illustrating America's obsession with fast food.

Must have DVD for a quid! Thanks OP.

Why would you want to watch this again???

Flippetyflop

Why vote cold just because you don't like th film?

Isn't voting about if it's a good deal or not?

Don't like the film myself, but still gave it heat, for £1 it's a good deal!

What if you wanted to watch it for the first time?

hot for me, very good documentry

nice find

Men's Health mag always dedicate a section of the Medical Research page to what they call the "Ministry of the Bleedin' Obvious". This usually contains studies from Universities that are a complete wastes of money, outlining such obvious facts as "listening to loud music on your ipod for too long can damage your ears" etc. I think that the findings of this documentary would fit nicely into this section. "Eating too much McDonalds food can make you fat". Thats it, I've just saved you an hour or so. Not worth it for any price as it achieves nothing. Spend that quid on something on the Super Saver Menu.

actually, I love this film, Morgan Spurlock is a great Communications theorist in my opinion, I studied him as part of my A level and own this DVD and have watched about 7 times so for £1 it's a bargain!

Glad to see this has got lots of heat rather than just the ppl voting because they don't like ir.

Always thought this site was about deals not personal reviews

Hotukdeals isn't it? Not hotukreviews-voteifyouliketheproductornot.com

Good deal but it was there a while ago but they seem to have restocked with these again.

Great documentary, well worth £1. But as its Poundland it may be store/location specific.

I haven't seen this film, whether it's been on TV or not, and I recall that it doesn't just highlight that you can get fat from eating their food - the bleeping obvious as you refer to it, after seeing reviews from the past. It also has entertainment value, rather than just stating some facts or opinion, which could potentially have been summarised in 3 sentences or so. Taking that approach, you could almost never watch any factual programmes on TV or anywhere, if you just expect to get a simple statement of the clear facts or opinion.

I see this as a good value deal, better value than any low value piece of food, with or without fries.

IIRC he had actually lost weight by the end of it. Not gained it. But it has been a while since I last saw it it so I may be wrong.

Slightly different kettle of fish in terms of my "hotukreviews" comment. I was criticising those that vote cold on something just because they don't like it. Say someone voting Gears Of War cold because they couldn't complete it etc. When I gave Supersize Me a kicking in my last post, its because it doesn't serve its purpose as a documentary. It would be like somebody posting an MP3 player that doesn't allow you to transfer MP3 files over to it. No matter how low the price, it doesn't do what it is meant to do. There is just no merit to Supersize Me other than a budget Michael Moore trying to make a name for himself by eating McDonalds for a month or whatever timescale he affords himself (and don't say most documentaries are like this using channel 4 shows as evidence, as they are just as devoid of value as Supersize Me). I remember a scene where Spurlock went to a dietician and was told not to eat a McDonalds diet. SHOCK!

I rate this as much as an entertaining DVD as the discs you get with CD lens cleaners. The ones that play a loop a psychedelic colours whilst the disc is cleaning the lens. Neither of them are worth watching as neither of them are films as the content is entirely redundant.

"Taking that approach, you could almost never watch any factual programmes on TV or anywhere, if you just expect to get a simple statement of the clear facts or opinion."
You can if you watch the History channel etc. Your statement seems to suggest that you only watch dross like the "the Worlds first pregnant man" in which case I can understand why you would think Supersize Me is factual.

Next deal is a chocolate teapot, don't attack me when I vote cold (incidentally I never voted this DVD cold after all this discussion).
