It def is. We just watched it and it's very engaging. Michael Keaton is great as ever. This even kept my husband's attention and he enjoyed it, so yeah, it's good.

Boy, that Ray Kroc was a sonofabitch.

He def took advantage of the McDonald brothers, there's no doubt about that.

The only thing I can say about Kroc is that if it wasn't for him, McDonald's would still be one restaurant in San Bernardino.
He easily could've given them that 1% and it would've been fair and all parties would've been happy. But noooooo!

"The McDonald's in Downey, California is almost unchanged in appearance since it opened in 1953. The oldest operating McDonald's restaurant is a drive-up hamburger stand at 10207 Lakewood Boulevard at Florence Avenue in Downey, California."
I've been there. It's cool. Like a blast from the past.

Not sure why you spoilered this, tbh, but yes, McD's is what it is because of Ray Kroc, plain and simple.

I don't really consider it a spoiler if you can look up a real life story before you see a movie, that's what I'm saying.
