Product Description

Vegucated is an award-winning documentary that follows three meat- and cheese-loving New Yorkers who agree to adopt a vegan diet for six weeks. Lured by true 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. 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? This laugh-out-loud funny, entertaining, and inspiring documentary showcases the rapid and at times comedic evolution of three people who share one journey and ultimately discover their own paths in creating a kinder, cleaner, greener world, one bite at a time. The film has been selected by 12 film festivals and is the winner of several awards, including Best Documentary at the Toronto Independent Film Festival. This latest international DVD edition includes subtitles in Brazilian Portuguese, French, German, Hebrew, Spanish, and Traditional Chinese, plus closed captioning.

Review

Editors Pick! Vegucated is fresh and fun, using humor to reach an audience without sugarcoating the issues or sacrificing the seriousness of the subject. An exceptional effort by a first-time filmmaker, this is a rare grassroots project with the ability to make it big. ----VegNews Magazine

This film can change your life in so many positive ways; it s truly a must-see. What I love most is how Marisa Miller Wolfson presents interesting facts and compelling information in such a fun way that you barely notice you're learning some big stuff! ----Kathy Freston, author of Quantum Wellness and Veganist

I love this film. Not only does it cover the hows and whys of healthy, humane eating, but it captures the OMGs and WTFs of the transformation process. A must-see! ----Rory Freedman, bestselling co-author of Skinny Bitch

3.0 out of 5 stars Well intentioned but heavy handed April 7, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
First up, I've been a vegan for nearly a year and I can attest to the transformational effects it has on your health, fitness, attitude and lifestyle. I've been a single-person marketing campaign for films such as Forks Over Knives and Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead, both of which illustrate effectively the positive effects of a plant-based diet (beer is plant based, woo-hoo). Personally, I think the biggest negative of veganism is the stereotyped baggage that follows which I try to fight all the time - vegetable eaters aren't all smoking weed in their drum circles trying to fight the man.

While I support any effort to show people how the Western diet is bad for your health, this film comes across as more of a PETA commercial than an attempt to follow 3 people willfully changing their lifestyle. I'm completely against the way that mass farm treats animals but spreading the vegan word must surely come from illustrating the gains that individuals make rather than having a political agenda about animal treatment. That said, what is shown in the film in the animal processing facilities is disturbing and the public should be aware - but let's make that a focus of a different film.

For me, this film lacked the journey promised in the subtitle about following 3 New Yorkers becoming vegan which could have been funny, personal, touching and dramatic. As a contrast, I think Forks Over Knives is a substantially more approachable film for non-vegans and doesn't press the animal cruelty buttons to guilt people into quitting hamburgers.

5.0 out of 5 stars An interesting and somewhat graphic documentary. March 11, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This film's goal is to educate you as to the health benefits of a vegan, or at least vegetarian lifestyle, but even more, it is dedicated to educating people as to the horrible atrocities committed to fill the shelves in the meat section of your local grocer. It basically takes three people from different lifestyles and challenges them to embrace a vegan lifestyle for six weeks. During those six weeks, as they are learning how they can eat properly without meat or dairy products, they are also exposed to the dark underbelly of animal butchery and production. The film is very graphic in this respect, showing the inside of chicken, beef, and pork production plants and farms. One scene shows the castration of a cow. Very disturbing. The film also teaches about how, just because a label says free range, organic, and cruelty free, it doesnt really actually meet those standards. For example, when we see 'free range', i think we all have a picture of an animal traipsing about a meadow until it's slaughter time (which is gruesome enough). In reality, they are still kept in small pens and squalid conditions, but are simply not confined 12 chickens to a single tiny cage. They show how chicken beaks are melted off to keep them from fighting in the cages. They show a lot. In fact, if you were to watch this film, i think you might view the consumption of meat and dairy quite differently, from both an appeal standpoint, and also from an ethical one.
There is some sloppy editing in this film, including at least one glaringly obvious misspelling, but the overall messages this documentary puts forth are valid, important, and quite compelling.
A definite must watch in my opinion.

2.0 out of 5 stars Go watch Forks Over Knives instead April 24, 2012
Format:DVD
Let me start this review by saying that I am a vegan, animal rights activist. I disliked this documentary so much! It was annoying, came across as poorly made and really was heavy handed with the slaughter house footage. This video would turn most non-vegans off instead of opening their eyes. I'd recommend people watch Forks Over Knives, Fat Sick and Nearly Dead, and Food Inc, as well as read Skinny Bitch or Eating Animals as these all do what Veducated wished to do. I was so disappointed with this film! There was a lot of hype over this film and I expected so much more.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not So Much About Healthy Choices as Humane Choices June 30, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Not what I hoped it would be. Really focused on the aspect of Veganism because of cruelty to animals. Having been a "junk food" vegan for many years I finally got to the point of understanding it is NOT enough to just be vegan. Eating whole foods, plant based is a key to getting the nutrients. The reason vegetarians and vegans get a bad rap is because many look sickly, which many are. The movie would have been nice if it had addressed eating a whole foods diet and not some crappy pasta with marinara sauce as being healthy. T. Colin Campbell and Dr. Joel Fuhrman appear but their guidance to eating healthy is sort of brushed over. It would have been nice to plug more of a nutrient dense diet than eating a bunch of processed foods, even if they are vegan. Graham crackers are not any healthier than nilla wafers even if they are vegan.

Ok, that being said, if you want to reinforce the reason you don't eat meat, than this movie will help with that line of thinking. I just wouldn't use it as a reference for how to eat healthy.

5.0 out of 5 stars It was great. December 19, 2011
By claire
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
From the trailer I wasn't positive that I would like all the characters but they were so great really relatable. It totally packed in all the things you go through as a new vegan including the issues that you become aware of. There was so much packed in to this fairly short film and overall it was enjoyable. The scenes of violence towards animals are woven in in ways that help you emotionally recover (and not leave the room crying or turn off the movie) while still being made more aware. It's not going to win any awards for awesome graphics but it is really well made. I would recommend this to anyone without hesitation.
