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

Bring a strong stomach
8 May 2013 | by Emory_Kris_AaronSee all my reviews

I sat down to watch this with a friend, who is female, and felt like I did a number on her. Seemed like a nice little flick about some good looking blonde girl who lost some weight and wanted to share her insights about her new diet. There is a brief shot of her staring at her teevee while she grimaces over the (unseen) footage of factory farming, but then she is running around being cute and she gets some New Yorkers to try the vegan diet for six weeks. They eat their good bye meal to meat and animal products at a steak house . They good naturedly show what is in their fridges which is largely meat and dairy, or show their dad cooking up big piles of meat and lovin' it. It's all kind of fun and light hearted. Then, in the middle of the film she and her three recruits hit the movie theater to watch a documentary about factory farming. This time, you get to watch too. That night my friend had nightmares. I would say people who are the least bit squeamish need to prepare themselves. If you are an advocate of "ignorance is bliss" about where your meal comes from, skip this.
