Fast Food Nation

On Saturday night, I picked up Fast Food Nation, went through the McDonald's drive-thru and rushed home with the new DVD and my double quarter pounder meal. The movie based on the best-selling book, follows a fictional fast food company executive at "Mickey's. Luckily, I had finished my burger, by the time he is sent out on his business trip to investigate how fecal matter (shit) is getting in the meat of their "Big One" burger. The movie follows his journey from the office to the processing plant, with a side story of the illegal immigrants sneaking into the states to work at the plant. (one illegal alien was played by Fez from That 70's show.) Overall, as much as would have liked to enjoy the movie, the characters were boring, the story never went anywhere and I was left feeling like I had just ate a double quarter pounder meal. Overall 6/10 (Read the book)
