    A must-see movie that could have used a sharper edge. show more

    Carrie Rickey Philadelphia Inquirer

    Its surgical candor makes Forks Over Knives a little bit like a food horror movie. show more

    Loren King Boston Globe

    The film delivers a concise history of Western eating habits, with graphs and charts punctuated by entertaining real-life experiences. show more

    A middling documentary but a magnificent indictment. show more

    Forks is a plate of vegetables. It's high on nutritional value but absent any pleasure. show more

    Rex Reed New York Observer

    I'm sure there is much to be learned from Forks Over Knives (the title means fruits and veggies can be forked, but anything you cut with a knife is lethal), but what does it have to do with real life? show more

    V.A. Musetto New York Post

    The preachy movie is hardly worth the hassle and money required to see it in a theater. Better to download it or wait for it to pop up on TV. show more

    Depending on your own relationship with food, the pro-vegetarian documentary Forks Over Knives may be an inspiring call to action, a tedious bit of propaganda or a 90-minute guilt trip. show more

    Watch this your life...its that simple. Shocking to see the critics gave it a 57% approval rating, but the viewer (regular folks) gave it a 98% approval rate. This is the highest I have ever seen for any movie, on any site. Knowledge is power, and there is soooo much information that is DELIBERATELY being kept from us. People are dying because numerous industries would collapse if the whole truth is made common knowledge. This two hour movie will change your life, really.

    Have not seen Forks over Knives yet as both Net Flix and Blockbuster have not got it in stock since it was released. Could this film have been pulled by the food iindustry?

    Shocking. I thought to myself if I don\'t change the way I eat after watching this I am an idiot. Breakfast was nuts and juice salad for lunch and I am searching on line for my dinner recipe. EVERYONE I love has to see this movie.

    This film is chock full of life-saving information. It is presented in a conversational way that is not preachy or condescending. The narrative unfolds like a great thriller and, ultimately, we all find out what, not who, is the villain at the end. Of course, that would be a meat-laden, fatty and sugary diet. As crazy as it sounds, this might just be the most important documentary you will ever watch.
