Sicko will scare people, and it probably should.

The Hollywood Reporter
Michael Moore intelligently, comically and incisively diagnoses and calls for the treatment of a sick U.S. health care system.
88
I have only one complaint, and it is this: Every American should be as fortunate as I have been. As Moore makes clear in his film, some 50 million Americans have no insurance and no way to get it.
88
In a summer of dumb, shameless drivel, Moore delivers a movie of robust mind and heart. You'll laugh till it hurts.
88
Highly entertaining and informative.
88
Sicko is Moore's best, most focused movie to date -- much more persuasive than the enraged and self-righteous "Fahrenheit 9/11."
88
It is not a polemic but a plea.
88
Moore's most assured, least antagonistic and potentially most important film.
83
The Cuban escapade, designed to provoke, backfires when he loses focus by including Cuban firefighters in an homage to 9/11 first responders.
75
Chicago Tribune
Sicko doesn't formulate a way out of this heartless craps game we're playing. It is, however, a very entertaining position paper, and a reminder that we should do better by more of our citizenry.
70
Lots of Sicko stands as boffo political theater, but its major domo lost me by losing his sense of humor.
