Interesting, but biased against the left (there's such a thing as a conservative hypocrite). Could have been edited tighter. Some of the humor was flat.

This documentary takes a shot at the liberals who say one thing and do the opposite. They use Michael Moore, Noam Chomsky, The Kennedys, Al Gore, Hilary Clinton and George Soros as liberals who claim to hate capitalism, but in reality have their own capitalistic exploits they keep on the down low.

Many aspects of this are informative. However, their approach is childish when they use some guy named Kip who poses as rich person and shares with us his insights of how to make it rich while being a liberal. It has him dressed like a banker and begging for support on the streets of NY. The irony is embarrassing, and it doesn't stop there. They try and confront Michael Moore about his investments that he claims he never had, and it goes so far as to send him a cake with his tax return on it. Although this is a Michael Moore tactic, it really looks pathetic and undermines any credibility this film might have had. They then try and confront Sen Kennedy who is caught off guard and embarrassed. Why not be more civil and invite them to a panel discussion or ask them to explain what the controversies were all about and ask for a press release. I know these are not the best answers, but neither is trying to humiliate a person in front of a camera.

In regards to George Soros, he does not hide what he did in currency speculation. It is something anyone could have done, and he should not be faulted because he has liberal views.

It did have a good soundtrack and was better quality film than many documentaries. It is too bad that the potential was squandered with unprofessional journalism.
