#Fries from Compliance

Prank calls can amuse, irritate or be completely irrelevant to people. Some find the humor in them to be juveline, others find it acceptable but in the end most prank calls are quite inconsequential, most of them, I guess, some aren't and some prank calls are not really prank calls. This story is about a call made to a fast food restaurant by a man claiming to be a police officer, the manager of the restaurant believed him and obeyed all of his orders. She obeyed even though he asked for terrible, awful and sometimes completely surreal demands. It's even more incredible to know that this movie is based on a true story, kind of a like a reenactment really. It's very uncomfortable and makes the viewer a bit angry but it's a successful experiment that shows how people obey without questioning. I guess critical thinking and common sense was not on the menu and they also ran out of bacon.
