The Founder 

 

My parents told me about The Founder. They had gotten it free from their library. The library in our area charges money to see movies so I decided to buy The Founder when it went on sale. I purchased the Blu-ray + DVD + Digital version of The Founder. I found this movie to be very interesting. I also really enjoy seeing movies based on true and real stories.

The biggest issue with The Founder that families will have is bad language. I am thankful there were only a couple of words in The Founder though. The Founder could have gotten a PG rating if the bad language had been left out. The Founder also has a divorce and Ray Kroc cheating on his wife (in thought at least) with another married woman. I felt bad for his wife because she was so mistreated in The Founder.

It took me 115 minutes to watch The Founder from beginning to end. Since this is Holly Weird there is always some debate on what is historically accurate and what was changed. There are some very historical accurate things in The Founder. At least that is my opinion after doing some research on the movie. Certain aspects like the hand shake and royalties are up for debate.

The Founder tells the story of the origins of McDonalds. Two brothers come up with the idea of fast food but do not like the idea of franchising. Historically speaking the franchising may not be accurate. Along comes a salesman Ray Kroc. He sees what they are doing and wants in on it. He gets a bad contract that does not make him money. So he learns from another gentleman how to take the empire from the brothers.

How did Ray Kroc take their empire from them? Each McDonalds restaurant leased the land they were on. Ray Kroc bought the land, and leased it to each restaurant in The Founder. This grew his wealth and power over McDonalds. The Founder showed me that Ray Kroc was pretty slimy. He had vision and some good ideas. He ruined his marriage and the marriage of another couple.
