I'm Lovin' It!
Michael Keaton is amazing as always, but this shows why you should avoid McDonalds. It was built on deceit and greed. If you want clogged arteries, drink powdered milk. And how about those fries that used to have beef fat in them without letting people know? All McDonalds is good for us an early trip to the grave. Thank god they use real ice cream now, or so they say, but who knows what's in the rest of the stuff? Eat at your own risk.
So basically it shows that Ray Kroc was a despicable man who screwed the original owners, lied to them, cheated them and cheated on his wife, and stole another mans wife. Hopefully he's rotting in hell.
Good view on the real story. Really invoked pure emotion from myself and those i saw it with
Good story good acting. Enjoyed it a lot. especially because it was based on a true story
5 star movie, sit back and enjoy
Interesting look into the Ray Kroc journey
I really enjoyed this film but wish there had been more filming in and around the actual McDonald's. There was more time spent filming in offices and hotel rooms. I understand this was easier production wise and it wasn't a real McDonald's but that was the part that really got me excited, just wanted more of it. Overall really interesting and fun to watch.
Loved it! My son did, too. Great business lessons.
Loved it! Very entertaining! Michael Keaton is a brilliant, shrewd, devious bastard! His long-suffering, wet-rag face wife, is fabulously played by Laura Dern! In fact, all the actors were perfectly matched to the real life characters they portrayed! The movie took you from its roots in California to encompassing all 50 states by the 70's! What a story! And I went right out to McDonalds afterwards for my dinner - yum!
3 stars because the story had some interesting background info about a biz we all know. Keaton is always fun to watch. Learned a lot about the beginnings of the fast food biz. Good flick for entrepreneur types who like to see what it takes to find success. And also shows the ugly side of biz as well.
Well done it tells a story even og you have good ideas if you lack the nerve to push through you will only be small potatoes
This was a great movie with excellent acting by Keaton and supporting actors. It was interesting to learn how it all got started and I loved going back to the 1950s.
Way too slow action is not super not worth much
Great movie, lots of interesting facts of how it became but moreover interesting persistence in the founder.
An excellent film!! Michael Keaton delivered a very strong performance. Time and money well spent here!
I liked. Didn't find it slow, it told a story. I didn't know the story and found it very interesting. Now I know.
An excellent portrayal of how McDonald's came to be. Will surprise many. The original brothers came up with the innovative idea and had the inspiration, but it was the character portrayed by Michael Keaton that took it across the country and across the world. Characterization and what it takes to succeed are just two of the hallmarks that make this movie stand out. Follows true events.
Impressive performance by Michael Keaton as the man who made McDonalds a success across the country and across the globe. The two brothers Mac and Dick McDonald came up with the original ideas and had the inspiration and vision. This is a story based on true events that transpired. Character portrayals, the will and the drive to succeed, how persistence and sheer willpower pay off, all of these are well expounded. And the characters are remarkably close in appearance to the actual people as well. A movie well worth watching just to see how it all transpired. You have to see it to believe it, to feel the good and the bad that transpired, to have it all revealed. A movie must-see.
One of the most interesting movies I've seen in a long time. Never realized how much of a douche bag Ray Kroc really was until seeing it.
Very entertaining. Keaton was great.
Very slow moving movie. Michael Keaton is excellent in his role. However, it is kind of depressing, based on the true story of the founders, 2 brothers, and the "slick" salesman that literally stole the original idea and company from the McDonald founders. I was restless, and it was long and boring.
