Bottom line: The party's over. There's no such thing as a free lunch. America itself may be a bubble.

Well made, informative and genuinely terrifying documentary, in which the use of humour can't quite diminish the spectre of doom and gloom.

Think of this important documentary as Economics 101, a primer on how America and Americans spend, and what hardships the future holds for us unless we change the pattern and our habits quickly.

Monsters and Critics

For a film starring the national debt, this is a good one. The expected tedious numerical research is accompanied by excellent graphics and archival footage that bring it alive. Is anyone listening?

Practically begs audiences to declaim it essential viewing, rather than quietly convincing us

I.O.U.S.A manages to keep this dense, dry information dynamic enough to be interesting and terrifying enough to be important.

If you believe the terrifying documentary I.O.U.S.A., America is headed for a financial crisis of monumental proportions - and apparently, we are probably too late to keep it from happening.

Its aim is to raise awareness of an impending financial disaster if America continues acting fiscally and morally irresponsible.

[A] timely documentary...There is a sense of urgency that propels Creadon's cautionary narrative as an alarming wake-up call to financial discipline.

Creadon avoids turning his film into a partisan slugfest, instead opting to focus on how our country as a whole must come together.

This solid doc reminds us how unsustainable the current American economy is.

Times [UK]

Unexpectedly entertaining, given that it's about dodgy accounting on an epic scale, the film predicts an economic cold shower that is about to douse America's prospects, thanks to its ever-expanding national debt.

Patrick Creadon's film is a lucid history lesson in the failures of successive Republican presidents to put a stopper in the country's leaking fiscal hole.

It makes a very good effort at trying to cover this enormous, important, complex issue of the national debt in less than an hour and a half.
