While the film offers plenty of food for thought along the way, it's hard not to wish that it contained more nutritional value.
No one who has read more than a couple of articles about global warming will learn anything from this movie, but there is some amusement value.
| Original Score: 1/4
addresses the problem of making an American public aware of climactic catastrophe as if it were 1999 and Clinton still the president.
| Original Score: 2/5
Gratingly condescending toward its audience and sorely lacking in any substantive information about the problem or the solution.
Everything's Cool understands that a pretty face like Jake Gyllenhaal's in The Day After Tomorrow is sometimes necessary to sell an important story.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Gold and Helfand paint a considerably livelier cinematic tableau than An Inconvenient Truth as they interview a diverse cross-section of artists, scientists and average Joes who are devoting themselves to the betterment of the environment.
A tighter focus would serve the film's educational agenda much better, but it's a modestly entertaining and occasionally eye-opening documentary.
| Original Score: B-
I really liked this film more than I did An Inconvenient Truth, as Everything's Cool made the subject matter into a palatable form that actually made it interesting instead of depressing.
| Original Score: 4/5
