I thought it was really interesting and Helen/Dave (can't remember their surnames) were really inspiring. Just the sort of story Hollywood loves to dramatise - little people take on big business in court and win moral/PR victory which leads to a big crash in profits hahaha. But no doubt they can't because McDonalds is a big sponsor of tacky action figures and other film franchise products. I saw Supersize Me a few weeks ago too.

Just found their website mcspotlight . McDonalds spent £10 million on legal fees to censor them just for distributing leaflets, they had nothing apart from voluntary donations to cover witness expenses. I don't know how the prosecution laywers can sleep at night - greedy fat cats.
