This in class presentation of Super-Size Me is the first time I have seen the film. For the past few months, I have not eaten fast food. In fact, the last fast food I have ever eaten was In-N-Out, and In-N-Out is not such a bad place to eat in. Those burgers are delicious and their fries are fresh. As of now, I was eating a big Carne asada burrito from a genuine Mexican restaurant. So I do not think that really counts because I can control the amount I eat over time.

McDonalds has smoothly recessed its Super-Size Me options from the menu without attracting so much attention. Of course, it is a business standard to maintain their fake, glorious image. Certainly though, I would have liked to see more background results and more realistic approaches involved, such as exercising and more hidden, potential causes stated.

Overall, it is a decent film and I rate it seven out of ten. I did some research afterwards and it seems that he does not want to share some more critical details to others about his large experiment with McDonalds, ironically similar to how he cannot get an interview with that one big shot lady. It really makes me a bit sad to see such a positive film using bad advertisement logic to enact certain policy
