Movie Info

At a time in history when the FBI has deemed animal-rights activists the number-one domestic terrorist threat to the U.S., filmmaker Curt Johnson sets out to explore exactly how an organization such as PETA can possibly take precedence over the threat posed by Osama bin Laden and al-Qaida in a documentary film that aims to tell the truth about the people who defend the creatures that cannot speak for themselves.

Perhaps the greatest service Johnson does is to turn the event that spurred him to make the film -- the FBI labeling animal rights activists the top domestic terrorist threat -- into a crucial dialogue.

That one can't quite decide if these charming men are heroes or villains is a mark of Johnson's calm, even approach to an issue seemingly fueled by emotions run amok.

It lets you off dizzy and confused, whereas the best documentaries leave you feeling that you've come to a settled perspective on a subject.

The result, admittedly, is a bit of a din. But it's certainly interesting.

Top Critic

A miraculously evenhanded treatment of a snarlingly divisive debate.

Audience Reviews for Your Mommy Kills Animals


An interesting, informative, but unfortunately overlong documentary about animal rights activists and the various tactics they use. The director wisely decides not to take a stance himself, but, rather, allows for all sides to speak. This approach educates the audience without being ponderous, and it also allows the viewer to come to his or her own opinion. It also means that the film drags and becomes redundant at points. Nevertheless, I strongly recommend this film to anyone interested in the subject.

The inside scoop on the animal rights movement and those out to stop them. Be amazed at who ends up with egg on their face. A good effort at being non judgmental with the facts laid out for the viewer to decide.

Super Reviewer


A thought-provoking look at the varying perspectives on animal rights, animal cruelty, and its associated organizations. The documentary is biased, but provides enough insight into the contradictions of major organizations like PETA, HSUS, and violations of the first amendment to make it worth checking out.
