Hilarious Fun!
Battle Creek, Michigan is hometown to me and several generations of my family. So, maybe I appreciated ‘The Road to Wellville’ more than most. After all, anyone living in Battle Creek either works for the Kellogg Company or is close to someone who does. Kellogg’s and Post cereal companies have affected nearly every level of Battle Creek’s evolution for 100 years or more.

The great cereal boom of the early 1900s is still talked about today. And tales of the legendary Dr. Harvey Kellogg (artfully played by Anthony Hopkins), Seventh Day Adventists, and the famous (or infamous) Battle Creek ‘San’ are fondly retold by some of the town’s elder residents. The health regimens practiced at the B.C. Sanitarium led to a host of other health-related businesses in Battle Creek which made everything from dubious exercise equipment to nearly tasteless all-veggie soybean burgers.

This film is a lively, tongue-in-cheek rendition of the intriguing story about an era when entrepreneurship in the U.S. was at its peak. The cast, featuring Matthew Broderick, John Cusack, Bridget Fonda and Dana Carvey, is excellent and the humor as wacky as it gets.

Bon appetit!

Review By: comquest
Much better than initially perceived
There is a prevailing myth that somehow eating vegies and grains and avoiding meat is somehow good for your health. There are many sources of this point of view as well as hundreds of different viewpoints and takes on the myth. This film explores one the great perpetrators of this myth, John Harvey Kellog of Battle Creek, MI, the inventor of cornflakes and along with his associates, the well known Graham family who gave us Graham wheat and graham crackers, were all spin-offs of the Seventh Day Adventist religious twist on the old testament food laws. Hopkins is intense and the story kind of flops along, seemingly with no story line or guiding plot beyond the inherent charlatantism that surrounded the charismatic Dr. Kellog and his associates. The film does, however, point out the Kellogs became very, very wealthy promoting this early approach to essentially vegetarian eating. If, for nothing other than that fact, this film hits the mark and does a great service to all us. As a film, it has no explosions, chase scenes or graphic killings, stunts or lurid sex scenes, albeit the little romp in the wood with the quack German Dr. Spitzvogel masturbating his patients to help them “relax,” might qualify; however, it is full of satire, twists and even sadness. In short, this is an often overlooked, over-criticized film, too often compared to a standard which it does not aspire.

There is no solid empirical evidence that supports vegetarian eating as being somehow more “healthy.” In fact, current thinking is changing, especially among nutritionists seriously reexamining the role that low fat/high carbohydrate diets play in our current obesity epidemic. However, as the Kellogs and the Grahams found out, you can not only fatten your clients by having them eat lots of grains but you can likewise fatten your bank accounts in the process.
