      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      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.

      Atavia Reed Chicago Reader Super Size Me 2 does an excellent job of showing the highs and lows of the country's capitalist-driven farming industry. Apr 16, 2020 Full Review Richard Roeper Chicago Sun-Times 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... Rated: 3/4 Sep 6, 2019 Full Review Brian Lowry CNN.com 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. Sep 6, 2019 Full Review Charles Koplinski Reel Talk with Chuck and Pam With knowledge comes power and perhaps Spurlock's newest film can give us all the power to make better, more informed decisions. Rated: 3.5/4.0 Nov 21, 2020 Full Review Jim Schembri 3AW Spurlock seems aware that his antics won't change much. His purpose here is simply to inform people, knowing full well the irony at the heart of his enterprise. Still, it's terrific viewing, often funny, sometimes scary. Rated: 3/5 Apr 22, 2020 Full Review James Croot Stuff.co.nz As with the original Super and his many other documentaries, Spurlock peppers his narrative with plenty of humour, a dash of animation and some clever music choices. Rated: 4.5/5 Mar 26, 2020 Full Review Read all reviews

      Jeff M I have always considered Morgan Spurlock to be a kindler, gentler Michael Moore. The original SUPER SIZE ME is one of my favorite documentaries ever, and I have seen it at least half a dozen times. So I was obviously extremely keen to see what he would come up with in the sequel. Unfortunately, it's a bit of a mixed bag. By far, the best part of this movie is when he focuses on the chicken farmers who are under the dictatorship of the National Chicken Council. These scenes are interesting, disturbing and often unexpectedly moving. My issue with the film is when he opens his own fast food restaurant. His message becomes muddled. I admire the fact that he would open a restaurant in which he is truthful with what goes on behind the scenes, but by opening the restaurant he is still contributing to the industry he has skewered. So it all becomes a bit confusing as to the message he is trying to convey. It's still very entertaining, and the good definitely outweighs the bad, but it comes nowhere near the Oscar nominated original. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/26/24 Full Review Tstaff 7 Very funny movie and serious topics on our food supply. I hope the allegations aren't true for Morgan though. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 06/04/23 Full Review meredith w Morgan Spurlock is back to again battle with the food industry, this time from behind the register as he opens his own fast food restaurant. While it sticks to formula in its structure, it's an interesting, eye-opening film that is unfortunately underrated given the controversy surrounding Spurlock as its director and star that saw its release pushed back. Its expose of fast food marketing tricks is eye-opening, however, its revelation of how poorly the farmers are treated is the sadly the biggest take-away. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Ages 13 and older!!!!!!! The greatest 01 hour: and 33 minutes with real footage of chicken fast-food chains and their foods (and employees)!!!!!!!!!!! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member Absolutely devastating to see and hear these farmers stories. I also enjoyed the behind the scenes glimpse at how the food is marketed, photographed, prepared and packaged. Really well done. I hope that Morgan Spurlock and the farmers shown in this movie have better luck over the next century because it is truly refreshing to hear their perspectives. I will be recommending this to every one I know that loves a great documentary. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Entertaining and an eye opener Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 08/19/21 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
