Fast Food Nation
(2006, Richard Linklater)

This won't be a long review because there really isn't much to say about this film. All in all this film was pretty boring. I'm one of those people that will sit thru an entire movie or read a whole book once I start it, even if I don't like it. Well this was one of those movies. I kept looking at the timer to see if it was almost over. Richard Linklater probably would of been better off making a straight up documentary based on the book of the same name, instead of making a movie based on the ideas and facts put forth in the book.

So all in all I'd be lying if I said that this movie didn't have it's moments but your time would be better served by just reading the book Fast Food Nation, by Eric Schlosser instead. The book was one hundred times better than the movie, but isn't that always the case.
