You may be hoping that Morgan (Super Size Me) Spurlock's Where in the World is Osama bin Laden? slipped into theaters without fanfare because Spurlock did find bin Laden (or at least got close to him) and had to keep it all hush-hush. No such luck. This movie is a case of arthouse bait and switch. Its true subject is one decent Yank's desire to believe that Everyman and Everywoman - Everywhere! - are as warm and amiable as your average American Joe: him, Morgan Spurlock, the regular guy as fearless globetrotter.

Morgan Spurlock, the director of Super Size Me, is fitter and more rational than Michael Moore, his major influence. Spurlock launched a one-man near-suicide mission targeting fast food - and managed to make a first-person muckraker without turning into Moore physically or mentally. This movie is about Spurlock eating nothing but McDonald's food for a month. It's not about him eating up the screen. The picture is like a kid's all-you-can-eat dream come true, but come true as an adult nightmare involving deteriorating blood pressure and organ function.
