  • Slacker Uprising leaves a hollow feeling, in contrast to the determinedly upbeat self-congratulatory message.

    September 26, 2008 | Rating: 2/4
  • Whatever its intent, this interminable 96-minute highlight reel plays like Moore's homage to himself.

  • Moore's studentmobilization drive now looks prescient, but he should have kept this piece of wallpaper agitprop on the shelf.

  • ...this repetitious and self-indulgent hodgepodge comes across as a nostalgia-drenched vanity project, with far too much footage of various celebs at assorted gatherings introing Moore as the greatest thing since sliced bread.

  • Captain Mike Across America is a shameless act of self-promotion even for a shameless self-promoter like Moore.

Audience Reviews for Slacker Uprising

    Though there was the odd useful fact or touching moment, this "documentary" was largely a self-serving dud. Eddie Vedder and Steve Earle perform, Rosanne Barr does five minutes of decent stand-up, but otherwise, very little of interest happens. It's like watching Moore's Oscar Speech: The Road Show. I admire Moore as a flimmaker, but this film chronicles Moore right on the heels of Fahrenheit 9/11 - I think his sense of self-importance was incredibly inflated at the time. Skip this one.

    Another interesting film by Michael Moore about he tried to get everyone to vote in the 2004 election against George Bush. The film is rather interesting but I have no idea if it is true or not. I just find that Michael Moore makes a good documentary regardless of whether the information provided is completely accurate. It is still compelling to see what Michael Moore will do to get the truth.

    in 2004 moore took to the road to stop bush getting qa second term in the white house by travelling america trying to get the so called slacker non voters to cast there vote for oponents against bush, qas we all know, it dident work, and bush got in, like his other. a bit diferent from other docs hes done, just folowing the events, but does bring 7up a few thoughts, the american public with there go yea atitude gives the inpression, they think there the only country, that votes in there leader, like its unique, well its not, my country does it, like many others, and t5he film misses its little films within a film, that farenheight 911 and bowling for columbine did very well, but also, we see moore angry here, on his crusade, it does get to him, and watch out for my fav group R.E.M standing up for the cause
