Doc: May I Be Frank? I Be Frank?  Please don't.

This doc started out on a good note...Frank Ferrante wonders into San Francisco, Café Gratitude, a raw, organic and vegan café.  After befriending some of the staff and confiding that he is a drug addict, is morbidly obese, is pre-diabetic, and is fighting Hepatitis C the boys decide to take Frank under their wing for 42 days and coach him physically, emotionally and spiritually.  Frank goes on to eat only raw food, practices gratitude, visits local holistic practitioners, and gets a weekly colonic.

That all sounded great, but the doc failed to deliver on any inspirational level and it wasn't even clear if Frank gained anything from his experience as he ended up with a drug overdose sometime after.  In fact, towards the middle, the doc took a very dark tone and never quite recovered.

Frankly, I wouldn't recommend this film to anyone.
