The original English name of the movie is Super Size Me. I’ll look for it at the video rental store and see what it’s like.
For now I have read the summary of the movie on Amazon.com and some reviews by people who have seen it. Evidently, it’s an exaggeration, because the man in the movie ate three meals a day at McDonald’s for a month, super sized the meal whenever he was asked, and he ate everything on the menu at least once. Obviously no normal American eats like this, and most ABnormal Americans don’t either.
I understand that the guy got fat and unhealthy eating this way, which anyone would expect. However, it’s interesting to note that the advertising for Subway restaurants features a guy who used to be super fat, and he shrank down to a normal size eating nothing but Subway meals for a year.
This movie Super Size Me sounds something like the movies Michael Moore puts out. He’s a comedian who knows how to use cinematic tricks to make Americans look stupid. Americans know his past, and we can basically see through the games he’s playing. When the films go overseas, however, the foreigners watching them have no context, and they think he’s a documentary journalist telling the truth. Because of this, people all over the world think that in my state you can open an account at a bank and walk out with a free shotgun as the bank’s gift to you. In fact, this is impossible, and even if you buy a gun, you have to get fingerprinted have a criminal background check, wait 30 to 45 days before you can pick it up. Nonetheless, because of Michael Moore people all over the world think that in my state businesses give guns out like confetti.
