Spurlock, M. (Director). May 21, 2004. Super Size Me [Motion Picture]. United States. Kathbur Pictures. I will be using this movie for my research paper. It discusses a man named Morgan Spurlock, who uses himself as a guinea pig at McDonalds. He must eat McDonalds three times a day for thirty days. If the clerk asks him if he would like to super-size his meal, he has to say yes. Over the thirty days, Morgan has doctors who will be testing his health because he will not be exercising.

This movie indicates that eating fast food on a regular basis will lead to medical problems. This idea can be used in the introduction of my research paper, where I discuss how super-sizing is becoming a problem in today’s society. Murphy. J. (June 2002).
