McDonald’s McDonald’s Kentucky Fried Chicken and a Pizza Hut

I’ll admit I don’t usually watch documentaries. Frankly, I find them boring. Super Size Me is a major exception. Mostly because I (as much as anyone else) love food. Especially fast food, particularly McDonald’s. Like most people my age, I saw Super Size Me in health class. It’s mainly about humorist Morgan Spurlock deciding to eat nothing but McDonald’s everyday for a month, breakfast, lunch, and dinner, trying everything on the menu at least once. As well as taking a look at fast food industries and unhealthy foods in America. We’re all probably aware of how cheap fast food is compared to healthier foods. That’s no accident. It’s part of the reason why I eat McDonald’s (or Burger King, Wendy’s, KFC, Taco Bell, Pizza Hut) just about every week. What sets this documentary apart from others is the humorous take on the subject matter. Super Size Me will make you hungry, but it will also make you think. Although unlike some people, I don’t stop eating meat just because I find out how it gets made. Not even working in a meat factory is enough to change my mind. Give Super Size Me a taste and see if you like it.
