Super Size Me: I’m lovin’ it!

"Super Size Me" is another of my all-time favorite documentaries. Here's what I wrote on Twitter: Filmmaker Morgan Spurlock tries to turn himself into Michael Moore, literally, by eating nothing but McD's for a month. 8.5 (out of 10) Sure, it’s a bit of a stunt-umentary. But it’s a good one. Morgan Spurlock is an otherwise healthy specimen. Until he decides to eat nothing but McDonald’s -- breakfast, lunch and dinner – for a month. He chronicles the physical and emotional changes with visits to doctors and various other experts as he super sizes himself with this unusual diet. And don’t forget to check out the extras. You just may think twice before driving through the golden arches.
