The Founder Description

Directed by John Lee Hancock (SAVING MR. BANKS), THE FOUNDER features the true story of how Ray Kroc (Michael Keaton), a struggling salesman from Illinois, met Mac and Dick McDonald, who were running a burger operation in 1950s Southern California. Kroc was impressed by the brothers' speedy system of making the food and saw franchise potential. Writer Robert Siegel (THE WRESTLER) details how Kroc maneuvered himself into a position to be able to pull the company from the brothers and create a billion-dollar empire. The film also stars Laura Dern as Ray Kroc’s first wife Ethel; John Carroll Lynch as Mac McDonald and Nick Offerman as Dick McDonald.

"The Bounder" is a British sitcom which ran from 16 April 1982 to 28 October 1983, made by Yorkshire Television. The series starred Peter Bowles as Howard Booth, an ex-convict who served two years in jail.

The Founder Movie Reviews

  • The movie is OK

    The movie is Ok, however the story behind the franchise represents everything that is wrong in the world, particularly the United States. Covet after covet after covet. I knew that the handshake was a scam. If the handshake was good enough for part of the deal why not the rest. The two brothers should have stood firm with the contract as they did initially with their core beliefs of what they wanted McDonalds to be. You get everything in writing!
  • Loved it!!

    Wow didn't know the truth. Loved, loved, loved the movie!! Rented it for 99 cents and what a steal for a GREAT movie!!! Highly recommend it!
  • Amazing

  • Keaton!

    Hard to side with either side on this story but Keaton as usual delivers an electrifying performance and makes what rightfully should be the villain in the story as the real visionary. I don't eat McDonald's but the story like the store is all American.
  • Fantastic!

    I was not sure what to expect at first. Boy, am I glad I rented The Founder. Amazing movie! Highly recommended!
  • Amazing Movie Full of Life Lessons

    Music Fan 4 Ever
    Amazing movie that shows you that sharing is good, but don't share too much and becareful who you share with.
  • Great Movie!

    This movie did a great job of telling the story of McDonalds...I am not sure how accurate things are...not that they are unbelievable, but I honestly had no clue or interest in the history of this fast food chain until I watched this movie.
  • McKroc

    Very good film. Indicitive of the good old American values of greed, more greed and deception in the world of business and finance; where the honest guy, with integrity, gets the shaft. Micheal Keaton gives a fantastic performance, what a pro! He never disappoints. All of the cast shine. Good writing. A great film.
  • Why I waited for the 99 cent rental.

    I waited for the 99 cent rental because I thought this movie was a documentary like "Super Size Me". If they advertised it correctly I would have gone and paid full price at the theater. Get a clue movie studios.
  • Sad, Just pretty sad.

    My mom told me that I just had to watch this movie just once and she also told me that I should never see this movie again. Not a bad movie, but sad.
