    Every time I visited Hulu, I would always see Super Size Me listed as one of the most popular films on there. It is a great documentary, but as you’ve explained, its premise is flawed. Maybe, more people will come to realize this.

    We can hope.

    That’s great to hear Tom!

    On a side note I recommend that everyone with a Hulu account click the link and examine the comments. It could definitely use some in depth reviews that don’t consist of the dozens of things the author found objectionable. (Personal nutrition beliefs polluting the discourse? Never!)

    Also, the Hulu comment/review system lets one select whether or not they found a review to be helpful. Let me just say that many of the reviews are *faR* from helpful.

    Just one of the gems: This guy is a f__king idiot.

    I don’t want to appear to speak for all of us, but I mean it when I say not everyone believes “this guy is a f__king idiot.”

    Well, I always knew when the film reached a wider audience, the Spurlock fans would come out of the woodwork. I’ve had goofs making comments along the lines of “you’re a @#$%ing idiot” on YouTube for two years now, so I’m used to it.

    “you’re a @#$%ing idiot”… the kind of comment I’d expect from a malnourished brain…

    Certainly not an indication of razor-sharp rhetorical skills.

    Tom, just caught the Hulu release. Things that make you go hmmm. Sounds a lot like my dads story. His health took a downturn after my mother passed away unexpectedly, and he was left to make his own diet, where she cooked for him before. Well, he started reading labels and believed the hype they were selling. He stopped eating eggs, butter, red meat, and pushed away fatty foods. Instead he started eating high starch, “whole grain”, and would tout his good eating habits based on the label on the box. But after 2 heart attacks, now type 2, he questions where he went wrong. He was never fat, was a star athlete and was always physical. Now he sits and sleeps, the medication tires him out. He is finally listening to his doc, and his health is improving. I don’t want to end up down that road, so the movie really did wake me up. It was amazing, and I now understand why my father’s health deteriorated. Thank you!

    I wish your dad the best and hope the film convinces him to try something besides the low-fat approach.

    And I just ordered the DVD. I honesty hope I can park my dad in front of the TV long enough, with an open mind, to understand this and change some of his eating habits. He is very stubborn, but your film was very convincing. I’m still trying to help him kick his high starch diet, and maybe this is the fuel I need. I follow too easily in his genetic footsteps, being pretty thin, and thinking I can eat whatever I want, and that only obese people get heart disease. Fact is, it runs in my family, and I have to constantly remind myself that being thin doesn’t equal being healthy. I need to exercise a lot more, and eat less processed food.

    We have thin type 2 diabetics in my family. It’s good that you don’t believe being lean makes you bullet-proof.

    Brought to you by Pizza Hut!?! Seriously !?! I guess Hulu has to pay the bills. That is hilarious.

    That’s funny. The first time I checked, it was brought to you by REI, an outdoors-hiking-biking store.

    Great documentary! I just noticed, did you write the description of the movie yourself? “He’d show that you could lose weight on a diet of burgers and fries” sounds odd and a bit misleading because you avoided high-carb stuff like fries from most of your fast-food diet, didn’t you?

    Nope, someone else wrote it. Not sure if it was Hulu or the company that placed it with Hulu.

    OUTSTANDING! Great job Tom!

    Good to see that everybody that fell into this BS Gov. experiment, has a way to go other than what we have been doing!

    Thank you, Jeff.

    No captions or subtitles 🙁

    in the future perhaps?

    No plans at this time. It’s a self-funded film and that’s an expensive process.
