The unnamed San Francisco left-wing magazine that Moore goes to work for at the beginning of film is Mother Jones. Moore worked for the magazine for three months in 1985 before being fired for putting his friend on the cover. Moore sued the magazine for contract breech, and used the money he won in the settlement to partially fund Roger & Me (1989). See more »
I was kind of a strange child. My parents knew early on that something must have been wrong with me. I crawled backwards until I was two... It all began when my mother didn't show up at my first birthday party, 'cause she was off having my sister, and dad tried to cheer me up by letting me eat the whole cake. I knew then, there had to be more to life than this.

Easily the funniest documentary of all time, this film takes a hard look at the common working man. So many elements in this film are excellent, and one gets to see the tough life these factory workers experience. From the cross action between Roger Smith and the workers getting evicted is one of the most surreal moments in a film full of them. While Michael Moore fiddled with the timeline egregiously, the tongue-in-cheek attitude most of the people exhibit is shocking. A movie for anyone who feels frustrated with the daily rat race.
