Critic Reviews for We The People: The Market Basket Effect

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (4)

The film is more effective as an emotional appeal for better corporate behavior than a stringent analysis of the complicated scenario.

May 10, 2016 | Full Review…

There are good lessons to be learned from the Market Basket saga. "We the People" doesn't trust the audience to figure them out for themselves.

April 28, 2016 | Full Review…

Combining court documents, footage of the protests, and interviews with reverent personnel, reporters, and politicians, Reid's fast-paced and engaging film appears to play out as a simple question-and-answer exercise.

April 21, 2016 | Full Review…

The filmmakers have made this for the purposes of near-term celebration rather than long-term understanding, and they're probably judging their audience well.

Top Critic

This material is too good to completely bungle in a documentary, although We the People includes some ill-advised moments.

July 31, 2018 | Full Review…

We the People works best when it relegates itself to telling an unusual story about an unusual businessman.
