Storyline Heading
The movie traces the birth of an everyday, ordinary burger through a chain of riveting, interlocked human stories – from a hopeful, young immigrant couple who cross the border to work in a perilous meat-packing plant, to a teen clerk who dreams of life beyond the counter; to the corporate marketing whiz who is shocked to discover that his latest burger invention – “The Big One” – is literally full of manure.

Drama - Despite the presence of some comedy stars, this is a very serious look at the fast food industry aimed at an adult moviegoing audience. This is not for the squeamish as there are graphic scenes of animal slaughter.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Above Average Fast Food Nation doesn't sound the alarm as loudly as it should, and its means of presentation leaves much to be desired, but there's enough disturbing material here to make it worth a look, even if it's only to confirm buried suspicions that vegetarians might be on to something.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average Focusing solely on the Mexican story line might have made a better film. Instead we have a whole lot of disjointedness that is supposed to all tie together.

Note: The rating above is our interpretation of what the critic would give this movie based on their review. We are not affiliated with these critic's in any way.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
It all begins when Don Anderson (Greg Kinnear), the new marketing hot-shot at the fictional Mickey's Fast Food chain, discovers that nasty contaminants are getting into the frozen patties that form "The Big One” – his company's best-selling burger and the key to his corporate success. Determined to find out how this could happen, Don sets out on a revelatory investigation into just what goes into the making of Mickey's meat. Leaving the cushy confines of his California boardroom, Don heads for the ranches, slaughterhouses and cookie cutter strip malls of Cody, Colorado, where he discovers multiple perspectives on a fast-food world he never knew existed – one fraught with hazards, fueled by desperation and misinformation and resonant with deeply human effects.
