As a return volley to Moore's cinema, Celsius shares Moore's blatant agit-prop but none of his humor or entertainment sense.

Celsius 41.11 is so bad it's almost like performance art, or those cheap records from the '60s, where the Chipmunks sing the Beatles' greatest hits.

The even faintly informed will see only a cut-rate vision of flabby white men defending their own bloodthirsty opportunism.

There's really nothing more here than you can find watching dreadful political advertisements and dreadful political talk shows.

It's not that Moore's film doesn't deserve an argument. But it does deserve a more thoughtful one.

There is little new in this mostly dry and humorless defense of President Bush, which adds a little heat but not a whole lot of light to the political debate.

There are some very thought-provoking points, and the movie deserves a balanced listening-to.

Like Moore's film, Celsius hits too many topics with too broad a brush, resulting in yet another contribution to this campaign season's spin cycle of rhetoric.

Like its cinematically superior inspiration, Celsius 41.11 isn't going to change many minds.

The new documentary film Celsius 41.11 represents another unconvincing effort on the part of conservatives to mount a viable critique of Michael Moore.

As a film exercise, Celsius 41.11 is routine.

Chetwynd and company at least attempt to score their points honestly, avoiding the spurious or ad hominem attacks of those for whom many little lies somehow constitute fair play in November's battle against the Big Red One.
