  • 5 stars Loved it! My son did, too. Great business lessons.
  • 4 stars Loved it! Very entertaining! Michael Keaton is a brilliant, shrewd, devious bastard! His long-suffering, wet-rag face wife, is fabulously played by Laura Dern! In fact, all the actors were perfectly matched to the real life characters they portrayed! The movie took you from its roots in California to encompassing all 50 states by the 70's! What a story! And I went right out to McDonalds afterwards for my dinner - yum!
  • 3 stars 3 stars because the story had some interesting background info about a biz we all know. Keaton is always fun to watch. Learned a lot about the beginnings of the fast food biz. Good flick for entrepreneur types who like to see what it takes to find success. And also shows the ugly side of biz as well.
  • 5 stars Well done it tells a story even og you have good ideas if you lack the nerve to push through you will only be small potatoes
  • 4 stars This was a great movie with excellent acting by Keaton and supporting actors. It was interesting to learn how it all got started and I loved going back to the 1950s.
  • 1 stars Way too slow action is not super not worth much
  • 5 stars Great movie, lots of interesting facts of how it became but moreover interesting persistence in the founder.
  • 5 stars An excellent film!! Michael Keaton delivered a very strong performance. Time and money well spent here!
  • 4 stars I liked. Didn't find it slow, it told a story. I didn't know the story and found it very interesting. Now I know.
  • 4 stars An excellent portrayal of how McDonald's came to be. Will surprise many. The original brothers came up with the innovative idea and had the inspiration, but it was the character portrayed by Michael Keaton that took it across the country and across the world. Characterization and what it takes to succeed are just two of the hallmarks that make this movie stand out. Follows true events.
