Starting from a place of ignorance and never going much further, Seifert omits anything that might hurt his obvious anti-GMO thesis.

Why anyone would think that home movies of the director and his kids belong in a social-issues doc is a truly WTF question.

The real truth is that GMO OMG...is merely the latest in a long line of one-sided agitprop documentaries. Far from an impartial investigation...Seifert's work is a monotonous censure that, in the absence of conclusive data, exploits fear.

This is a David-vs.-Goliath movie, but David's aim is so spotty that Goliath has nothing to fear.

Insufferably certain of its own charm and a lot less interested in educating viewers than it purports to be, Jeremy Seifert's GMO OMG offers an introduction to genetically modified food that is only slightly more thoughtful than the movie's title.

In this unsatisfying home movie meets documentary hybrid, filmmaker and father Jeremy Seifert seeks to convey the potential danger of genetically modified organisms (GMOs) in our foods and the need for legislation requiring accurate labeling of such.

With the cinematography and its family-centric approach, it takes what could have been a dry subject and broadens its appeal.

Seifert approaches the subject from the perspective of a concerned father of three youngsters and he comes across as earnest and well-intentioned.

Recognizing that minds are changed as much through the heart as a litany of facts, GMO OMG manages to provoke important self-reflection in viewers.

While the movie rarely feels like the definitive, well-honed dissection this critical subject demands, [Seifert's] lighter approach keeps a somewhat arcane topic more easily digestible, dare say entertaining.

[Provides] a gentle, flyover alert to obliviously chowing-down citizens ... without hectoring and with no small amount of charm.

Combines the folksy charm of Taggart Siegel's The Real Dirt on Farmer John and the frightening facts of Robert Kenner's Food, Inc.
Mark Adams
Screen International
September 10, 2013
Smart animation and a series of powerfully provocative statistics punctuate the film, and while familiar it is still a subject that needs to be focused on.
Top Critic
Ernest Hardy
Village Voice
September 10, 2013
A documentary that is by turns exasperating, illuminating, and intentionally infuriating.
