Though it's about childhood obesity in the synopsis (on Netflix, anyhow), you could really relate this to any age group. A 40 year old obviously doesn't have Pizza Hut in his school canteen, but he's more than likely got it across the road, and he's just as likely to make a bad choice
Actually it opens your eyes to marketing and sugar addiction. I know it has inspired me to take the 10 day sugar free challenge (after I eat that box of Pop Tarts in the cupboard...).
Sugar has sadly had me. In its grip since I was quite young....

4/5/15. Wow, sounds like I enjoyed this a lot more on the first viewing. A few years have gone by and I decided to watch it again.
It's still an okay movie, but nothing great. Certainly not the 4 stars I originally rated.
Reese Witherspoon is actually quite grating here, considering her small role. (Even though the character is nice).
The whole thing is far fetched (obviously) and I don't know that I really felt anything for Penelope. This felt to me very much a family movie fairy tale. Like Enchanted. So I guess for a fan of that genre, I would recommend it. Not so much for myself though.

Fairuza Balk doing the narrating, was a nice touch, though. If it included interviews with her and others, that would have made it something to see.

However... Much to my surprise, a decent and original storyline. What a scary vision of the future. Though the robots look great, and the idea of sending them out to work etc is not without its appeal, it was depressing to see the "real" people looking slobby and quite honestly depressed.
Also interesting to see Rosamind Pyke in an earlier role.

I do have to laugh at the men being "paralysed" when that thing comes crawling out. I would have been on my feet and out of there in record time.
