Fat Sick & Nearly Dead Movie Reviews
User reviews on Fat Sick & Nearly Dead
As a doc**entary film it is not a very good one, but it does have a good message and good intentions. It has a very cheesy animation in the film and I did not appreciate that the director felt that the audience needs an animation in order to understand the film. The film’s director and producer Joe Cross is kind of full of himself and he made the film into sort of commercial for himself but his heart is in a right place and he seems to genuinely want to help people to change their lives, so I forgive his self-promotion and hope he helps more people to become healthier.
I have been trying to eat right and exercise lately and this film encouraged me to keep on doing what I am doing. The film is not nagging and forcing anybody to change their lives immediately, it only shows how much better your life can be if you treat your body well and respect it. The film is very educational and I recommend seeing it to anyone who wants to learn about healthy diet and different quality of life. In my opinion, the film is inspirational and must see for everyone. It is amazing to see the weight losses in the film and how Joe Cross changes lives.
This is doc**entary about an Australian Joe Cross who comes to America and goes on a strict diet in order to be healthier and loose weight. I am all about healthy eating, exercising and educating people about what they put in their mouths but I did not like this film and I do not recommend seeing it in the theaters. I felt that the film was kind of cheesy and Joe Cross was way too full of himself. he basically claims that we are purely responsible for our good nutrition and that is just not fact based because he completely ignores socioeconomic factors and that makes this film not a doc**entary but more of a commercial for healthy(and often pricey) foods.
