A pretty bad direct-to-video adaptation and nothing more.

Jordan Susman a su transformer idologies humanistes et mouvements activistes en une vulgaire parodie de leur propre silouhette
September 14, 2003
Offers not feast but its core Susman's film, despite its subject, is utterly conventional and as eager to please as a puppy dog.

This movie is sharp. It makes you think.

The film feels as loose and unfocused as the collective's political beliefs, at times veering dangerously close to Animal House territory.
July 22, 2003
A lame contemporary comedy about a radical Dallas commune operating out of a bookstore.

The Anarchist Cookbook bristles with wit and ideas.
July 21, 2003
The Anarchist Cookbook strains for a jazzy, Oliver Stone-ish look, but at its heart it is a placid and conventional moral tale about the dangers of wandering too far off the pathway.
July 20, 2003
Stylistically inventive and really well acted.

You'll feel burnt by this one.

Think of it as Fight Club Lite; the film may not fully explain Generation-Next ennui but it does have is a winning immediacy and agreeableness -- and Gummersall, who... delivers a crisp performance.
July 16, 2003
It's so devoid of a personal imprint that either Susman doesn't have very clearly formed opinions himself or he isn't much good at getting them across to the audience.
July 15, 2003
Because it never develops its characters beyond types, it comes off as flat and forced throughout.

There's a good film waiting to be made on this subject. This isn't it.

he film aims to be thought-provoking and funny, but this reviewer only laughed twice, and was only provoked into one thought: How do you go from The Deer Hunter to this?

Susman has put together a well-crafted, witty commentary on corporate culture and the deals all of us make with ourselves to come to terms with modern existence.

Whatever your politics, you'll find the film funny.
