POM Wonderful Presents: The Greatest Movie Ever Sold Reviews
(However, I do admit that I am the kind of person who don't think of selling out as a bad thing. I want to get in advertising for a reason. Woo! Capitalism!)
I appreciate this movie since it gets its points across without going overboard. Sure, some parts are more interesting than others, but this movie makes you think- and that's important when making a documentary. When Spurlock asks these companies to do certain things in the movie, at first you think "Man, that is a ridiculous idea! Who would do that?". Then they actually go through with it.
The movie makes you think about how simple these concepts of advertising are, and how few people actually notice them. Companies pay movies to have their product involved in almost any way possible. The random advertisements in this movie were also a nice touch and helped prove this point.
So overall, this movie was pretty informative, despite being boring at some points. There is some fun to be had in this documentary. I was sold by the concept and it delivered.
