Super Size Me 2: Holy Chicken! is a 2017 American documentary film directed by Morgan Spurlock. A sequel to the 2004 film Super Size Me, it explores the ways in which the fast food industry has rebranded itself as healthier since his original film through the process of Spurlock working to open his own fast food restaurant, thus exposing some of the ways in which that rebranding is more perception than reality.[1]

At the 2017 Toronto International Film Festival, where it premiered on September 8, 2017, the film was second runner-up for the People's Choice Award for Documentaries.[2][1] Following its premiere, YouTube announced they had purchased distribution rights to the film to stream on YouTube Red for $3.5 million.[3] In December 2017, YouTube Red dropped the film after Spurlock admitted to previous instances of sexual misconduct and harassment.[4] The production company Warrior Poets also announced that the film is being pulled from the 2018 Sundance Film Festival.[4]

ReceptionEdit

On Rotten Tomatoes, the film has an approval rating of 56%, based on 9 reviews, with an average rating of 6.3/10.[5]
