Movie "Vegucated"­

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.

    It was extremely well produced with an interesting creative format. I agree with Leisa; a few less trips to the farm and more emphasis on the good of veganism but I do feel guilty Monday morning quarterbacking such a excellent documentary product.

    Great presentation of movie with actor answering questions afterwards, as well as ample food samples, good stuff for auction and socializing. The movie was informative but I would have preferred if it focused more positively on the health and other wonderful benefits of being a vegan and vegetarian rather than pushing farm animal rights activism. I would have loved to see them visit people whose cancer (or other terrible disease) had disappeared after adopting a vegan diet -or spent time with 70-year old raw food-dieter Miamian Annette Larkins who looks 35.

    You have until noon tomorrow to pre-pay via credit card the tickets for $7 in advance. After that you will have to pay the full price of $10. It's going to a good cause anyway, as it will be helping to support the group "Compassion Over Killing". Call[masked] ext. 111 before noon and mention Meetup Group to prepay for your ticket. It will be available at Will Call at the Box Office.
