Super Size Me 2: Holy Chicken! may not be as filling as its predecessor, but it still manages to offer a moderately enriching overview of unsavory industry practices.

Movie Info

In the 13 years since Super Size Me, the fast-food industry has undergone a makeover. Today, chain restaurants tout food that's "healthy," "organic," and "natural." Filmmaker Morgan Spurlock explores this new reality with an approach even more immersive and subversive than that used for his first film: he sets out to open his own chicken franchise. We follow him every step of the way, from raising poultry and conjuring recipes to designing the brand and scouting a location. Spurlock brings his disarming humor to uncover the truths and lies behind this multibillion-dollar industry.

  • Spurlock's comedic antics give way to a more serious, traditional docu-journalist approach as he looks into the immensely unbalanced dynamic between the Big Chicken corporations and the local American farmer...

  • Compared to the original, both the message and the messenger look more flawed. But stripped to its core, Super Size Me 2 answers those questions in a manner that still manages to leave you feeling shaken and, if not crispy, a little steamed.

  • It only skims the surface of the habitual human behavior Spurlock wishes to explore and exploit.

  • Like its predecessor, "Super Size Me 2" is largely entertaining, with audience enjoyment varying on their appetite for Spurlock's fun, smug shtick.

  • The movie is at its most engaging when examining the near-monopolies controlling chicken farmers in the United States.

  • Spurlock's documentary turns out to be the exact thing it is meant to expose: an unfulfilling product passed off as something that's good for you.
