Or just watch it below.  (Sorry, but I’m told this link only works in the U.S.)  Enjoy … but don’t let it stop you from ordering those DVDs, please.

    Only works from the US.

    I was wondering about that. We’ll have the non-US DVD ready in another 7-10 days, then at some point I’ll figure out how to put it on iTunes or other services overseas.

    My sister is the only person that actually looks at my humble blog, but I guarantee she will click on the link I posted. Congrats, its about time because I actually sent a email as a Hulu Plus member after seeing some blatant spurlock promotion that they carry Fat Head. Thanks for all you do.

    I’ll happily take postings on one-reader blogs, thanks.

    The bonus interviews are missing, right? That would still be a selling point for the DVDs. That part about dog food was great. Now buy the DVD to find out what I’m talking about. 🙂

    Yup, the bonus interviews are only on the full DVD. Nearly 40 extra minutes of the experts talking about various topics.

    Yep – doesn’t work in Europe. Good job I got the DVD as soon as it was published. However – it’s great that this excellent film is now available to so many people and I sincerely hope that all LC-Bloggers will put a link on their pages! It’s very good of you Tom to make it available free of charge. Such generosity is rare these days.

    We’ll eventually find a way to make it available online overseas as well. It’s all a lot trickier than I would’ve thought. Local jurisdiction rules come into play, apparently.

    Congratulations Tom.

    If the internet has taught me anything, its that giving away your product for free can paradoxically increase your sales dramatically. Doing so increased Monty Python DVD sales 23000%.

    If there is a way to get a link to your website on Hulu that would be fantastic. Even barring that I expect your sales to increase dramatically via Googling.

    I’m sure you’re right; it’s mostly a matter of getting the word around about the film. Once people see it, a high proportion of them order two or three copies to give away as gifts.

    Glad to see you are on Hulu! Oddly, your DVD is still showing up as “not available” in my Netflix queue, even though I once rented it from them. No problem, tho. I bought the video, and have been showing it to friends and family. My Momma has finally taken the advice and quit wheat and sugar! Her health has changed dramatically. Although 71, she is again running all over the place… volunteering, going to the gym, traveling. I call her my teenage Mom now. LOL

    Outstanding news about your mom!

    I’m not sure what’s up with Netflix. It was available, then gone, then available, then gone. The same company that made a deal with Hulu is supposed to be working on Netflix Instant Play soon, providing we draw viewers on Hulu.

    YES!! I’ve been wanting to buy the DVD since I first heard about it, but paying our bills takes priority. Unfortunately. I’ll still buy the movie when finances allow, but I’m so excited that I can watch it online in the meantime! 😀

    Enjoy. I’m glad it’s available for people to check out.

    I’m watching Fathead with my 3 year old. That night at 1 am when you pretended to have chest pain after eating a Hardees double burger (or whatever), my daughter said. “Mama, did he die?”

    I said, “No.”

    That’s funny. I appreciate her concern.

    I’m happy to see the word being spread. Anyway at all. I watched part of it this morning on Hulu but I prefer the DVD – the bonus interviews are one of my favorite parts. And you are right – we have bought at least 4 or 5 copies so far. Preach it!

    The bonus footage was all stuff that didn’t fit neatly into the narrative of the film, but I think it’s great information. I still watch those bits.

    Tom…..Keep up the Great Work! I also would love to see (and buy) a sequel. I have shared this link with all my family and friends — at least the three people that will still listen to me :>)

    I have ideas in mind, but the first film has to pay for itself first.

    I just realized you’re the founder of the original twinkie diet! I wonder if that one guy stole his idea from you.

    I have no idea, although he did email me at the start of his diet to let me know what he was doing.

    Do you think is possible that the documentary will appear in HBO?

    HBO turned it down two years ago. Perhaps they’ll change their minds someday, but I’m not counting on it. Based on their programming, I’d say they prefer the “corporations are evil” documentaries.

    I saw Taubes’ site too. I’m glad he’s finally got one, although I wish he’d talked to you instead of Jimmy Moore for design references. Awkward animated graphics promoting the book, a huge header with a tape measure focusing on those problematic 22″ waistlines, etc. Heh. Not to be a nitpicker, but I always wonder when I see amateurish/poorly-designed pages promoting low carb (Gary’s new site, low-res artifact-y graphics and huge buttons on the Nutrition & Metabolism page, etc.), if people are going to dismiss them based on that, unfair as that might be. Presentation is important, so it seems odd for a major writer with a mainstream publisher to have a page that looks like a Geocities homepage from 1999.

    I was so thrilled to see your movie on Hulu! I had been wanting to watch it but, like others said, it was not available on Netflix. Perhaps people are buying the used dvds through them or just not sending them back after renting them. Anyway, I enjoyed it so much (and watched it with my 13yr old daughter who also enjoyed it) that I posted the hulu link on Facebook and ordered the dvd so I can show my mom and aunt the movie.

    Thank you.

    Thank you for the link! I’m going to send it to my statin-loving family who apparently are ignoring all the stuffy articles I’m sending them. Maybe they’ll be swayed by that happy, animated cholesterol!

    Let’s hope.

    Good news, but I wish the film had been just Part II. Part I felt too much like a Libertarian Rant, and Fast Food boosterism. I think Spurlock deserved to be taken to task–but Part I left me, uh, with a bad taste in my mouth…

    Part II however, should be seen by everyone. I’m thinking of telling my family to tune into Hulu and skip to “the good stuff”.

    Tom, I think you and I must be neighbors–much of your film was shot in Burbank. I’ll look for you next time I drive by McDonald’s on Olive Ave! 😉

    If I were starting the project again today, the Spurlock angle would be much shorter, and diet angle would be longer. (The film went in the can more than two years ago.)

    We moved from Burbank to Tennessee last summer. But you spotted the locations correctly.

    Yay! Dad said this was more convincing than anything I’ve sent him so far on why he should get off statins! He is not a fan of CSPI nor George McGovern (I grew up in South Dakota), so that gives you bonus points. Sounds like Mom might be getting the DVD for Xmas. Let’s all repeat together “Statins are of no benefit to women of any age.” Thanks!

    Tell your mom and dad Merry Christmas for me.

    Hi any idea when the dvd will be available in the uk or shown on tv here.
    Would be happy to get from i tunes as well.
    There is a channell called more4 in uk that shows lots of good documentaries-would be good to see this reach a wider audience – just watched your big fat fiasco presentation and thought it was really interesting and accessible

    DVD should be ready to ship overseas in about 10 days.
