My husband reluctantly went to this movie with me on our anniversary. He eats a lot of junk food and hates to hear about how it can be causing him health problems, He actually enjoyed the movie. This movie basically took on one area of nutrition -sugar, which is smart because the focus was sharp and indisputable. My favorite laugh out loud moment was when the Coke executive tried to validate drinking soda as being a part of a healthy diet in that it provides required liquid for hydration. The editing was a little sneaky but so is their advertising. Tit for tat. I can not even see a soda ad without thinking what sell outs for the celebrities to endorse.
