It's fun for a while. Then you realize all this Michael Moore-ish folderol is weakening the movie's strongest arguments.

What will make many viewers uneasy, though, is Dick's central quest.

gonzo filmmaking ... detracts from the film's more serious charges

Thumbing one's nose at prudes can be fun, but it can also be childish and ultimately patronizing.

Might I suggest a new ratings category for the MPAA: NP-21 (non-parents over the age of 21 might want to skip this one altogether).

The gotcha journalism backfires; instead of looking like a crew of crusading reporters unmasking the powerful, it just looks like a couple of practical jokers invading people's privacy.

...a hatchet job if you ever want to see one...I was looking forward to this film, but found it a boring, biased, uninformative, disappointing lost opportunity.

Is it possible for a documentarian to hit the bullseye and completely miss his mark on the same shot?

Winds up feeling shallow, padded and unrevealing.

...a much-needed muckraking documentary that rakes the wrong muck - at least if the filmmakers hope to inspire change.

Like a Michael Moore broadside, it can't stop ducking and darting between dimly related topics, hoping that the sheer momentum of scorn will see it through.

ick strikes a blow for every independent filmmaker who has ever been forced to comply with its restrictive mandates. Some of his underhand tactics, however, make one pause.

Is there a better system? Probably. But I don't hear Dick offering any answers.

This is an amusing film, less smart and provocative than its makers take it to be, and thin on sustained, rational argument and international perspective.
Daniel Eagan
Film Journal International
September 7, 2006
The film's valid points are undermined by the director's lazy rhetoric, juvenile humor, and grandstanding presence in much of the footage.

The same story in print would move more fleetly and makes its points more adroitly.

A good idea executed with insuffient flair and clumsily put together.

Folks who care won't learn anything and folks who don't, can't.

...A ringing indictment of a system that's not just broken. It's rigged and needs replacing.
