Can't commit to an overview of the movement by looking at three groups or stick with the trial of the "SHAC 7." So an intriguing but too short tour of animal-rights issues is interrupted by a flatly chronicled court case.

It isn't only organization that the mildly anarchic Your Mommy Kills Animals sorely lacks, it's also a sufficient number of sources.

Johnson's not pushing buttons just for the sake of attention-getting, he's revealing just how hopelessly complicated the issue has grown.

Your Mommy Kills Animals will more than likely still draw you in with its unbiased approach -- and, no matter where you stand on the issue of animals, you will definitely learn a lot about people.

It's the best kind of documentary, in that if you're a thinking person it is nearly impossible to watch the movie without having your point of view challenged and questioned.

What feels like a lack of propaganda makes the film all the more cogent, intelligent, and powerful.

Your Mommy Kills Animals lays things out with historical perspective, tracing the roots of both the animal welfare movement and animals rights activism to England.
