    I think this is an excellent movie. The *********** may not be for everyone , but the message behind it is an important one. I\'ve been drinking vegetable juice daily for 3 months (plus healthy meals) and I can\'t believe how amazing I feel. My energy is through the roof. In this day and age, people are constantly turning to fad diets to look beautiful. Drinking your vitamins is an easy way to get healthy, get energy, and start feeling good enough to get the ball rolling with exercise. This movie is NOT to be missed!
