POM Wonderful Presents: The Greatest Movie Ever Sold Reviews
It's definitely entertaining, that's something that Morgan Spurlock is very good at. I'm not sure how educational it is, because I think most people are aware of how much we are advertised to. However, there were a few things that I learned about how we market to teens. Of course, there's always the question of how much Spurlock has affected the subject he's documenting, simply by being in the film himself. But in the end, Spurlock isn't making documentaries to be scientific. He's trying to entertain, and in that way, he certainly succeeds.

This explores all about product placement in films. Spurlock does call attention to this issue, but perhaps he could have given us more information than what was shown here.
