Executive Producer's Statement:

I am very proud of what we've accomplished with this movie.  The entire cast and crew worked very hard to pull everything together and I would like to give my sincerest thanks and congratulations to everyone involved.

Muffin Man is not your typical movie.  It is not your typical love story.  It is not a "coming of age" story and is definitely not a "feel good" movie.  It is a controversial subject matter and we know that there are people who are going to be upset or offended.

If you haven't seen the movie, I want to make it perfectly clear that the movie is not about making fun of overweight people.  It is about making fun of the excesses of our society - and how we have gone from under 20% to over 50% of the population being overweight in about 30 years.  The movie extrapolates this out to the NEXT 30 years and gives a view of what our society could look like.

Unlike Morgan Spurlock's "Super Size Me", Muffin Man steers away from proposing any solutions.  There are no easy solutions.  There are many reasons WHY this trend is happening.  Personally, I think it's a by-product of our overly stressful and overly successful environment.  A good, honest "hard day's work" is no longer on a farm, or in a mine or factory.  It's sitting in front of a computer.  We make more money, but time is so valuable that we can't take a leisurely stroll to the store - we get in our car and drive there. Unhealthy food is easy to come by, cheap, and actually tastes pretty good.

There are many things conspiring against us, and it will take a concerted effort to reverse the trend.  Education is key, much like the education campaign against smoking that was waged throughout the 80's and 90's.  The percentage of people who smoke today is much lower than it was 20 years ago - but I think the obesity epidemic is actually a much more difficult problem.

Watch the movie.  It is in-your-face and outrageous, yet kind and gentle at the same time.  The characters are every day, lovable people - just a little "larger than life."

Sincerely,

David Workman
