Celsius 41.11 (2004)
Celsius 41.11 was an attempt by conservative pundits and politicians to respond to the runaway box-office success of Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11. The film features interviews with such notable public figures as Fred Barnes, Michael Medved, Fred Thompson, and Charles Krauthammer and offers a dissection of the democratic party's 2004 nominee for president, John Kerry.

Critic Reviews for Celsius 41.11
Now that we've had the four more years of Bush that the movie was designed to encourage ... Celsius 41.11 seems pretty sad and naive.
A grim slice of ultra-conservative agitprop...probably the worst example of the activist documentary to appear this election season.
Any way you look at it, November 2 simply cannot arrive fast enough.
As a return volley to Moore's cinema, Celsius shares Moore's blatant agit-prop but none of his humor or entertainment sense.
Celsius 41.11 is so bad it's almost like performance art, or those cheap records from the '60s, where the Chipmunks sing the Beatles' greatest hits.
The even faintly informed will see only a cut-rate vision of flabby white men defending their own bloodthirsty opportunism.
There's really nothing more here than you can find watching dreadful political advertisements and dreadful political talk shows.
It's not that Moore's film doesn't deserve an argument. But it does deserve a more thoughtful one.
There is little new in this mostly dry and humorless defense of President Bush, which adds a little heat but not a whole lot of light to the political debate.
There are some very thought-provoking points, and the movie deserves a balanced listening-to.
It's about as emotional as a PowerPoint presentation.
If Knoblock expected his film to change minds, as Fahrenheit 9-11 seems to have done, he really should have added more humor
Like Moore's film, Celsius hits too many topics with too broad a brush, resulting in yet another contribution to this campaign season's spin cycle of rhetoric.
Like its cinematically superior inspiration, Celsius 41.11 isn't going to change many minds.
The new documentary film Celsius 41.11 represents another unconvincing effort on the part of conservatives to mount a viable critique of Michael Moore.
