when he's retelling his experiences in front of an audience his sense of timing is impeccable and he is quite funny

The good news is Moore knows he's ridiculous, and he kind of makes fun of it.

This movie changed my life. It made me realize people have real problems, can't provide for their families and feed their kids. Any worries I have are nothing.

The rich are different and right now they're busy widening the gap between the haves and the have-nots with a vengeance.

Michael Moore has a special sense of people and images and how one voice over can make another image resonate especially strongly.

Moore is clever when it comes to baiting executives who seem puzzled or oblivious to his concerns.

If there's a serious flaw... it lies in Moore's tendency to mistake self-glamorization for credibility. Much more so than in 'Roger and Me,' he's the star of the show here, and don't think he doesn't know it.
