‘Supersize Me’ — Movies About Food
The Eater: Morgan Spurlock, the documentary's director.
The Food: A straight month of Mickey D's, everything super-sized when asked.
The Hitch: Spurlock intends to find out what happens if he eats nothing but fast food for every meal. This experiment in fast food gluttony is strongly disapproved of by Spurlock's girlfriend, a vegan.
The End Result: Predictably, Spurlock gains about 25 pounds during the course of a month, his cholesterol goes through the roof, and he feels miserable. Did you know that a single glass of coke contains the equivalent of 10 sugar cubes? Neither did we, but now we do. Thanks?
