Fast Food Nation


Don Henderson (Greg Kinnear)-a marketing executive at Mickey’s Fast Food Restaurant chain, home of “The Big One”-has a problem. Contaminated meat is getting into the frozen patties of the company’s best-selling burger. To find out why, he’ll have to take a journey to the dark side of the All-American meal.Leaving the cushy confines of the company’s Southern California boardroom for the immigrant-staffed slaughterhouses, teeming feedlots and cookie cutter strip malls of Middle America, what Don discovers is a “Fast Food Nation” of consumers who haven’t realized it is they who are being consumed by an industry with a seemingly endless appetite for fresh meat.

Dove Review

Watching this movie will make you rethink wanting a burger at your local fast food restaurant the next time you ‘re hungry. It is hard to for me to begin to describe the thoughts that went though my head watching this un-entertaining movie. The language was appalling along with the mistreatment of people who had a dream to come to America. There were so many objectionable things being carried out in this film that it is hard to list them. Because of the sexual nudity, bad language and racial discrimination just to name a few, this movie cannot be family approved.
