...Ribbons is borderline milquetoast: it doesn't have the courage of its convictions.

Pink Ribbons, Inc. amasses a wide array of pink-tinted footage, balanced by the testimony of women with Stage 4 cancer and experts who haven't drunk the Kool-Aid, pink or otherwise

One of the hallmarks of a great documentary is telling you something you never expected to hear...This Canadian film will, if nothing else, make you think twice every time you see a pink ribbon.

In the 98 minutes of "Pink Ribbons, Inc.," a wealth of information and images flit past, many intended to raise eyebrows if not ire.

"Pink Ribbons, Inc." is a colorful indictment of corporate infestation, but it's missing a prescription.

Pink Ribbons is an intelligent and moving account of how capitalism has profited off philanthropy, and how it's hurt cancer patients in the process.

[Lea] Pool examines the industrialization of the cause that made the Komen Foundation a self-fulfilling business and the filmmaker does a fine job in raising my awareness.

Pink Ribbons, Inc. is a valuable eye-opener about an important movement that has become distressingly commodified.

did take away a couple of ideas I hadn't really considered before...who knew early detection only works for a minority of those diagnosed with this disease?

The film raises the question of whether branding the disease has taken precedence over preventing it.

It's a well-argued polemic that, despite being one-sided, has loads of useful information to share, if only to begin a crucial argument about health care, allocation and coordination of research dollars, consumerism and the privatization of philanthropy.

An interesting documentary that rather criminally buries its lede, Lea Pool's film never tames her unwieldy collection of thought-provoking opinions into a cohesive entity grander than the sum of its disparate parts.

Delivers the goods on the incestuous relationship between the most powerful breast cancer advocacy group and the corporations that sustain it through the ill-gained profits made from spewing out carcinogens.

Timely warning about political messages behind philanthropic-corporate complex that tied fundraising, research, discussion, and perceptions about breast cancer in a pink bow.

an outrageous film glorifying unreasonable, ill-informed women criticizing huge charitable contributions from corporations because the corporations' alleged motives are not sufficiently pure.

Activist Judy Brady sums up this film's unapologetic message: "When I see a pink ribbon," she says during the end credits, "I see evil."
