For a class I'm taking I'm supposed to watch this movie...Fast Food Nation..and write a report on it. Now, I'm a vegan, and just watching the trailer to the movie made me quesy. So before I go out and sit down and actually watch the whole thing, I'd just like to know if anyone has seen it. If you could warn me about certain parts, or just tell me it's not as bad as the trailer made it seem... Just, anything to make this viewing more bearable.

The movie is already out ? I guess it's in theater and not yet on dvd right ? I wish they had it here. I would for sure go see it.

I've not seen the movie but I've read the book and I really liked it. As for the book, there was some hard parts in it for a vegan but for the movie I can't tell you.

From what I've heard the movie is supposed to be not only a documentary but more like a real movie, you know with a story. So I guess it won't be as hard to watch as a documentary you know.

Oh I'm not sure. The paper isn't due until mid-January... She gave us two options, and I know I couldn't watch the other movie, so I picked this one. She had me under the impression that it was out on video---but maybe she wanted us to go out to the movies to see it. :-/ It's going to be hard to take notes in a dark theatre...

The thing that really made me cringe during the was the cow... He was so cute...

This teacher is crazy... Ever see the Seinfeld episode with the low talker? This is her. In a lecture hall. You cannot here her at all. And I sit in the front of the room. Besides that she's all confused about things. I wouldn't be surprised if she gave us the wrong assignment...

Are you sure it's Fast Food Nation and not Supersize Me? Supersize Me came out on DVD a few years back, while Fast Food Nation (didn't even know they were making it into a documentary!) isn't out anywhere as far as I know.

I would email your prof and ask her to clarify if you can.

I know that only few months ago this year they were still in the making of the movie. It's not out on the dvd yet for sure and it's not even in theaters. It says it will come out in fall 2006.

Here's the website:

I saw it. :-/ I guess I'll have to ask her in class this week. I am /not/ looking foward to this assignment at all. But I guess it's a good way to get my thoughts about all of this out there. Hopefully my paper will be bursting with creative passion for the topic.
