Captain Mike Across America is an information-free, narcissistic and self-congratulatory high-pitched whine from a sore loser.

Political documentary is smug, sour, and sloppy.

It doesn't offer enough fresh material either to inspire or to infuriate.

Slacker Uprising feels more like a commercial for its maker than any sort of artistic endeavor, and because of the election's outcome, its release is more than a little baffling.

Slacker Uprising is a grossly self-indulgent flick compared to Moore's other works -- a second trip to the Golden Corral buffet when your elastic waistband already reeks of fried okra.

Slacker Uprising is a minor Michael Moore work, without a doubt. It's for hardcore fans only. If you're one of them, it's worth a look, but don't expect to be blown away.

Captain Mike Across America is a shameless act of self-promotion even for a shameless self-promoter like Moore.

...this repetitious and self-indulgent hodgepodge comes across as a nostalgia-drenched vanity project, with far too much footage of various celebs at assorted gatherings introing Moore as the greatest thing since sliced bread.

Moore's studentmobilization drive now looks prescient, but he should have kept this piece of wallpaper agitprop on the shelf.

Whatever its intent, this interminable 96-minute highlight reel plays like Moore's homage to himself.

Slacker Uprising leaves a hollow feeling, in contrast to the determinedly upbeat self-congratulatory message.

There's something heartening about seeing thousands of people responding so happily to Moore's sane, actually unremarkable themes.

When Moore turns his camera around and says this film - this election - is about you, not him, the movie really clicks.

Decide for yourself what "Slacker Uprising" is and what the rewards were, if any; I had a real love-hate relationship with it...

...too long and too repetitive to make any real impact...

Again, totally preaching to the choir (of which I'm obviously part), so I'm not sure what the intent is here. All I know is I liked it.
