Storyline

Vegucated is a guerrilla-style documentary that follows three meat- and cheese-loving New Yorkers who agree to adopt a vegan diet for six weeks and learn what it's all about. They have no idea that so much more than steak is at stake and that the planet's fate may fall on their plates. Lured by tales of weight lost and health regained, they begin to uncover hidden sides of animal agriculture that make them wonder whether solutions offered in films like Food, Inc. go far enough. Before long, they find themselves risking everything to expose an industry they supported just weeks before. But can their convictions carry them through when times get tough? What about on family vacations fraught with skeptical step-dads, carnivorous cousins, and breakfast buffets? Part sociological experiment and part adventure comedy, Vegucated showcases the rapid and at times comedic evolution of three people who are trying their darnedest to change in a culture that seems dead set against it. Written by Marisa Miller Wolfson

We are better than this
29 December 2012 | by (a discrace to us to treat another animal with such disreguard.) – See all my reviews

Im not a vegan i was wondering about vegans life style.And now I am sickened at myself for not knowing this!. I don't know how we can let this go on treating animals with such cruelty. As far as I know,in all of time never before has any of our ancestor been so cruel and disrespectful to life. We are the best and most evolved on this plant and no other animal is as cruel. It disgrace us as the human race to treat another animal with such horrific disregard. How can we do this? I always said i could never raise an animal and then kill it to eat. But now I think that letting an animal live and treating it well until you did kill it and eat it would be so much more human. I did not watch this film to become a vegan but now I fell like I have to stop eating animals or I am just as guilty as these slaughter houses are. I will not give them any more of my money!!I will not fund these action, I am a better person than this!!!It not okay to do this to something that is weaker than you. I don't want to drink a glass of milk bad enough to make a cow stand in a stall of iron for it's entire life, i will never drink milk again from a cow that has been treated this way.Sick!
