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

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.

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

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

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

A documentary that is by turns exasperating, illuminating, and intentionally infuriating.

Combines the folksy charm of Taggart Siegel's The Real Dirt on Farmer John and the frightening facts of Robert Kenner's Food, Inc.

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.
