Story (from IMDB) :

He should of stopped after making “Super Size Me”. From hearing about this film I wasn’t quite sure how good this one would be ; to say the least though it’s just isn’t really good. I mean Super Size Me was full of facts and he did research for that one ; this one is mainly just a small walk through in which nothing is really given a explanation. The fact that most of the movie is either him talking to various big names in film or just watching him attempt to find someone who’ll donate large sums of money to help fund the film is boring. You also then get the conferences that he has to hold with each of them. You really don’t learn anything that isn’t already known and in short you just feel like you are watching a “making of the movie”. Now there are some scenes that are pretty funny and some of the ideas he has are good and worth a laugh but overall compared to “Super Size Me” this one is just a disappointment.
Score : 4/10
