SYNOPSIS (from GetVegucated.com)
Part sociological experiment and part adventure comedy, Vegucated follows three meat- and cheese-loving New Yorkers who agree to adopt a vegan diet for six weeks. Lured by tales of weight lost and health regained, they begin to uncover the hidden sides of animal agriculture that make them wonder whether solutions offered in films like Food, Inc. go far enough. This entertaining documentary showcases the rapid and at times comedic evolution of three people who discover they can change the world one bite at a time.
"The movie is not rated. It does include explicit language and some graphic footage of factory farming and the like. We recommend viewers be at least in high school. Like an R-rated movie, though, it’s ultimately up to a parent."
