April 28, 2011
Shrinks the world situation to fit the mood of America and gets away with it. Candy-coated reality? Yankee vanity? Maybe so. But the sunniness is welcome.

Makes Michael Moore look like Marcel Ophüls
October 18, 2008
There is room for a tough, journalistic documentary presented by someone who really did want to know the answer. But this isn't it.

October 18, 2008
Complicated global problems require something a bit more challenging than this.
October 18, 2008
Morgan Spurlock is a living, breathing cautionary tale. Take a good, long look, kids: This is what happens when society validates really annoying people.

Spurlock's disarming, slightly goofy demeanor gets him out of situations that might mean trouble for anyone else. His films are always fun and even illuminating to watch.
September 19, 2008
This film finds him becoming more sentimental, perhaps because of his new domesticity, but the film is still consistently entertaining.

What makes it all work is how honest and grounded Spurlock is.
August 22, 2008
Woefully small-scale, often misguided.

August 7, 2008
Morgan goes out into the big bad, wide world as the naive and innocent everyman, asking the question of the title, but actually posing more complex issues - which address the human condition.
July 21, 2008
At its best, Where in the World is Osama Bin Laden? offers a simplistic look at a complicated problem. At its worst, it provides the same.
June 27, 2008
A superficial primer for people who aren't likely to go see it in the first place.

Morgan Spurlock has crafted an entertaining, lighthearted look at the middle east.

May 16, 2008
The film does offer a glimmer of hope that behind all the bellowing by politicians and thugs, there are millions of people in the Middle East who simply yearn for peace.

May 16, 2008
Spurlock approaches the state of the Middle East -- and therefore our world -- with an asinine every-dude-ness that isn't just simple-minded but wincingly self-absorbed.

Where in the world is Morgan Spurlock's head? Occasionally, during this exasperating and goofy documentary, it seems squarely on his shoulders. Most of the time, however, it's firmly lodged up another part of his anatomy.

May 9, 2008
A frustratingly soft documentary that would sooner teach the world to sing than get to the bottom of the Bin Laden enigma.

Entertaining documentary that subtly delivers an important message, while making some astute observations about American foreign policy.

Spurlock goes home in time for his son's birth, but if there's an end of violence and distrust possible in the Middle East, it is not yet visible.
April 24, 2008
Spurlock draws some weird paternal parallels, subconscious or not, between Osama as the fugitive founding father of Al Qaeda, and his own possibly wayward, pre-partum depression, stressed situation as an imminently expectant, first time fugitive dad-to-be
