A deliciously amusing socio-culinary prank.

Miami Herald

By Connie Ogle
Clearly an important film, if only for such disheartening reminders that a McDonald's salad with ranch dressing has more calories than a Big Mac or that Miami is the 15th fattest city in the country (Houston is No. 1).

I don't usually make recommendations of this kind, but if you or your kids have gone to a burger joint in the last few weeks, you really do need to see this movie.

Philadelphia Inquirer

By Steven Rea
A movie every American should see, although parts of it are close to unwatchable - notably an operating room sequence in which a pair of surgeons performs a gastric bypass, or "obesity surgery," as they like to call it, on a dangerously overweight patient.

USA Today

By Claudia Puig
Riveting and darkly comic Super Size Me is a whip-smart documentary.

Rolling Stone

By Peter Travers
It’s one of the blackest comedies to hit the screen since Dr. Strangelove. Spurlock proves himself a supersize talent; he makes you choke on every laugh.

Chicago Tribune

By Mark Caro
The movie is zippy, laugh-out-loud funny, persuasive and at times horrifying, as Spurlock undergoes his unpleasant changes with good humor and bad tummy aches.

San Francisco Chronicle

By Mick LaSalle
A cautionary tale as well as an expose on the power of the American fast-food industry. That the documentary comes across as more than a sermon has a lot to do with Spurlock's personality, which is outgoing and instantly engaging.

Super Size Me produces more laughs than a man's gastrointestinal distress should.
