    could you not just use the McDonalds name but have a Disclaimer at the end saying something along the lines of “This movie is made just for fun and the facts in it are made up and are no to be taken seriously”?
    But it could also be humorous to use a different name like McRonalds or something… and have Donald McRonald instead :wink And you could have made up names for their burgers and stuff too like “McFatty” or something.

    Yeah, that’s what I mean. Which is funnier:

    “McDonald’s Big Mac hamburgers contain a lot of fat.”

    or

    “MacRonald’s McStroke hamburgers contain a lot of fat.”

    Advice from the desk of Bluntman;
    call the place Wackdonalds, use an inverted “golden arches” M for the W, (bevis and buthead work at Burger Workd, where the W does resemble the classic “golden arces” in an inverted form) change the names of the Burgers (believe it or not, Big Mac is a registered trademark)
    “mmmm I’ll have a large Big Wack meal please, no ice in my cola-arroximation drink please”, and make sure you PARODY maccas, not just flat out attack them.
    should keep you safe enough.

    You are un-sueable if under 16.

    I’m sorry, but you need to stop getting legal advice from the back of a cereal box.

    It seems that a lot of people have already given some good input. Yes, you have freedom of speech. But, there are all the trademark and copyright laws. Then there is our little friend “Libel”. You dont want to get involved with that. I think the best thing to do is go with the parody, adn use a different name. “Mickey C’s”? E’s? Any sort of letter that sounds like D?

    But they don’t call it a Krusty Burger with cheese. They call it a quarter-pounder with cheese.

    And don’t even get me started on the Krusty partially gelatinated non-dairy gum-based beverages. :wink

    I heard that their (Krusty Burger) secret sauce is mayonaise that has been left out in the sun.

    But if you are under 12, you can use the handy ‘what is sueing? Is it some sort of breakfast cereal? So you are saying you are breakfast cerealing me?’ excuse…

    silly child, ignorance of the law is not a defence.
