How jacked up do our kids have to get before they notice what we're doing to them?

Melissa, Raquel, Michael and Danny are typical teens with mainstream lifestyles and eating habits. With the help of a curious narrator, they discover what lies beneath their exploitation and how to confront it. Teen emotional and physical conditions are examined by noted experts as the film uncovers an apparent conspiracy that works against the health of an entire generation.
The film's characters are led on a journey of discovery "they are challenged to recognize their detrimental underlying issues. With the help of experts, and guidance from their peers, they are presented simple solutions to deal with their problems. The teens are challenged to come to grips with their harmful lifestyles and what their unhealthy future holds.
In a climate where media attention is primarily on childhood obesity, Director, Jennifer Mattox looks at the bigger picture a system that preys upon consumer innocence in the name of profit. The filmmakers make a direct connection between what teens eat and their behavior and emotions. This frank and witty look at what's really going on inside the bodies, hearts and minds of the teen generation is a wake up call for them to stand up and demand change.

"The teenage bond with the world of fast food in all its variants is explored in this lively but hard-hitting exposé that brings animation, dramatization, comedy, and the testimony of experts in the fields of nutrition, food science, and psychology into play."
The Gene Siskel Film Center, Chicago, IL
“The wake up call is here... If you’re a teen, or the parent of one looking to open a conversation, this movie will get you talking…”
Dr. Jim Keany, www.jim.md
"A devastatingly brilliant film investigating the food habits of today's teenagers, the effect of our corporate-focused and soulless food industry upon everything from school lunch programs to the training of the modern taste bud and the devastation left in its wake. This is absolutely mandatory viewing for any parent and teenager. Eat a meal at the family dining table (with the television off!), do the dishes and then gather the family together to watch this modern, fashionable tale of loss and hope of rebirth."
Cori Brackett, producer of "Sweet Misery"
"ALL JACKED UP opened my eyes to what I eat and how it affects me.
I should know where the food I eat comes from and understand how the people that make the food don't care about me. I need to take matters into my own hands!"
"The movie helped me make better choices. We now have more family dinners together where we all talk, joke and enjoy time together. It has brought us closer as a family."
Audrey, mother, 45
"...It encourages progress unlike anything else that I've seen. It shows what could be, and contrasts it against what is. It shows the remarkable change four teens can make by simply taking control of their own lives. It speaks to teens of all ages, and encourages change even in the hectic world we live in today."
Rating: 5 of 5 stars

"I thought it was profound, thought provoking and inspiring - it brought out some great conversation with my 17 year old son."
John Monaco, M.D.
"If you have children, work with children, know someone who has children or enjoy junk food yourself, this movie is a must see. With the rising rates of child obesity and increases of adult diseases found in children, something has to be done. Our children will become tomorrows America. What kind of country and family do we want?"
Mark Idzik, Healthy Living Talk
"ALL JACKED UP is an excellent film on so many levels. This film should be seen by everyone as it addresses critical issues about our culture, our relationships, and the importance of how our most basic need - food - has been manipulated and used against us, and especially our youth, by greedy industries and corporations. ALL JACKED UP presents the issues and the solutions in a beautifully balanced way – with humor and with drama. It’s entertaining and it’s factual. It is heart-warming and at the same time inspires a righteous anger to do something to change a parasitic, unsustainable system. Thank you for making this informative and inspirational film."
Mycenay Plyler, Future Studios Cinema, Sedona AZ
“This movie is targeted at teenagers in America (though other western / becoming westernized countries are close behind), but I highly recommend anyone seeing this. Parents would also benefit particularly from seeing it.”
"What if the films Super Size Me and Fahrenheit 9/11 had a child?
Well, that baby might look a lot like the Movie ALL JACKED UP."
Cox Communications, Orange County, The Mix
"Incredible documentary, powerful beyond any words to get your children to finally listen to you about the absolute danger of junk foods and soda drinks. This is the most motivational and enlightening thing you could ever do to get your kids to want to eat healthy foods and to stop eating junk foods. Absolutely powerful!"
"It’s a great movie to watch with your children, whom will be totally spooked by what they’ve just learned. After the movie, your kids will immediately make some changes to their diet. You won’t need to say a word and feel like you are nagging. The movie will do it for you!"
Cathy Vignola, Cathy's Blog
"There is something very wrong with this generation, whether it's the habits we force on ourselves or by others. ALL JACKED UP is a surprisingly accurate portrayal of today's teenagers."
