About the Movie
Inspired by the incendiary New York Times bestseller that exposed the hidden facts behind America's fast food industry, Fast Food Nation combines an all-star ensemble cast lead by Greg Kinnear, Wilmer Valderrama and Avril Lavigne with riveting, interlocked human stories to serve up a firecracker of a movie that jumps off the screen. When a marketing executive (Kinnear) for the Mickey's burger chain is told there's a nasty secret ingredient in his latest culinary creation The Big One, he heads for the ranches and slaughterhouses of Colorado to investigate... but discovers the truth a bit difficult to swallow.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: To a degree, Fast Food Nation gets the job done, not least because of a harrowing section, late in the film, made up of actual slaughterhouse footage.
Rotten: The fiction that Schlosser and the director Richard Linklater have extracted from the book is a mess, with narrative lines that go astray or simply wind up in the air.
Rotten: Too many story threads are consistently ignored or dropped altogether.
Fresh: Fast Food Nation is alternately funny and disturbing, and surprisingly informative, even as it sacrifices some of its strength by lecturing to an audience that might be snacking on fake cheese-covered corn chips and calorie-laden cola.
i know avril lavigne is in this but what does she have for a part? ive never seen it but im curious cause i love avril.
Read the book, movie pretty close
If you want to know about this, read the book. The movie was actually rather disgusting, but it was pretty good, and pretty close to the movie. I didn't need a visual.
