This is a fun, well paced documentary that gets inside and reveals the humble beginnings of an industry that has grown into a cultural fixture.
I actually enjoyed this behind the scenes look at the people and the history of those relentless infomercials that seem to pop up on every other cable channel. They might often be annoying and laughably corny, .but they are definitely memorable ("In Japan, .the hand can be used like a knife, .but NOT in this case!" ) Pitch people takes you through a fast paced, insiders look at this niche industry, .and shares a colorful history that might surprise you. This was really well put together with some great interviews and some hilarious clips. At the risk of sounding preachy, .I think this film shares an important little nugget of history that should not be overlooked.
