Poster for Super Size Me

First film from documentarian Morgan Spurlock, Best Director (Documentary) winner at Sundance and nominated for Best Documentary at the 2005 Oscars. In the film, Spurlock subjects himself to a stomach-tightening diet: solely eating food from McDonalds three times a day for 30 days without exercising. As his physical and mental well-being deteriorates, he tours America examining the causes of his nation's ever-expanding gut.

None of this tells you anything you didn't already know, but it's consistently amusing and often disgusting.

Allegedly inspired McDonald's to discontinue its 'super size' promotions as a preemptive measure.
