I’ve learned from Tom Naughton that his new movie is titled Fat Head and carries the tagline You’ve been fed a load of bologna. Tom has also graciously agreed to answer all your questions about the movie so fire away. Submit any questions you might have as comments, and Tom will answer them in a blog post within a few days.
I’m putting up the rest of the clips from the movie on today’s post.
The sequence of these clips as they will appear in the movie is as follows:
- Blaming Fast Food
- Spurlockian Bolagna
- The Guy from CSPI
- Big Fat Lies
- McGovern Report
I’m posting these in kind of reverse order. I put up the last two on yesterday’s post.
Here are clips 1 through 3:
And here is the clip that contains one of the most perceptive lines in all of moviedom. It’s so typical of do-gooders such as the jerks at CSPI, and it runs rampant in our own government. It’s the idea that anyone producing and/or selling a product is inherently evil, and that we, the consuming public, are stupid, and, consequently, are desperately in need of do-gooders and governmental regulatory bodies to protect us from our own brainlessness. Because, after all, we can’t possibly think for ourselves. Naughton captures this mindset perfectly in two lines from the Guy from CSPI. Watch for them. Beautiful.
