America the Beautiful (2008)
Critic Consensus: This doc doesn't expose any new territory about our unattainable standards of beauty, but does manage to entertain with an effective and accessible tone by filmmaker/subject Darryl Roberts.

Critic Reviews for America the Beautiful
Perhaps in future exposes Roberts will uncover that ice is cold and furnaces hot.
Despite the occasional flash of insight, and a few semi-shocking factoids, most women are going to find this movie roughly as illuminating as a remedial math class might be for a Nobel-prize winning physicist.
In the documentary America the Beautiful, Roberts explores the cult of beauty in the United States and mostly succeeds in unmasking the flaws of fetishizing skin-deep beauty.
With so many pointless detours ripping you away, the film feels as lamely digressive as the proverbial one-track guy whose head won't stop turning as each new temptation walks by.
Audience Reviews for America the Beautiful
A GREAT documentary that told me things I already knew but alot of things I didnt know as well (Dogs getting plastic surgery?!) I'd recommend anybody & everybody to go see it once or twice.Does America have an unhealthy obsession with beauty? YES we do!
Informative, with some very effective interviews. It makes it?s point very clearly. A good variety of people were interviewed, giving different perspectives and keeping the story interesting.
highly recommend watching to girls & a few boys who care to see how much society standards are placed on "beauty".
