Trivia

Director Michael Wilson has stated that the film's title "is not a thesis". Instead, it's meant to be a satirical comment on what he calls "the shrillness that has engulfed the American conversation". Wilson singled out Michael Moore, Al Franken, and Ann Coulter as culprits. See more »

Quotes

[from trailer]
Michael Wilson: It's one thing to say, "Okay, we're gonna go out and make a documentary." It's another thing to push the truth so far just to promote your political agenda.

A bit meandering but ultimately worthwhile
18 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've seen three or four Michael Moore films. While I often hear people deride Moore, I can't deny his importance as a documentarian--he literally changed the face of documentary film-making, for good or ill. For example, "Super Size Me" or "Bigger, Stronger, Faster" would not have existed without Moore first. Having said that, there is much to criticize about Moore. I think only the most hardened partisan wouldn't realize that he plays fast and loose with the truth. This film exposes some of the problems with Moore's films. Should that disqualify Moore? No. But it should serve as a warning to all people that when they view a documentary they should be on their guard. All documentaries, no matter how objective they appear on the surface, have been manipulated. I will agree that there are levels of truthfulness, but no one can ever achieve complete objectivity, and you're naive if you think a documentary can be a window on the world. At least Moore doesn't hide that he has a perspective. (And I must tell you that I'm a conservative, so I don't generally care for his perspective.) As a final note, I think the title of this film is horrible: it's almost false advertising because Wilson's documentary is much milder. The title prepares you for a conservative hatchet job. I would have advised Wilson to come up with something different. ("Bowling for Michael"? I don't know.)
