Utilizing stunning computer animation as well as the visual archives of NASA, the Hubble Space Telescope Institute, the European Space Agency, and other leading observatories throughout the world, The Privileged Planet presents a spectacular view of our planet, our galaxy, and the entire universe, and shows us that not only is the Earth perfectly suited for intelligent life, but that the Earth is in the perfect location in the galaxy for man to make scientific discoveries.

It is a film that tries to come off as scientific, but really should just be muted and used for amazing images. Throughout the film, it tries to convince the viewer that intelligent design is more than an unscientific conjecture by making enough small leaps of logic that it sounds on the surface as plausible. Beware of the misinformation in this movie, because while it never asks you to believe in a god, it flatly rejects any real science in an effort to leave you at an intelligent design conjecture, and allows you to assume the intelligent design-er. Suggestible for a logic class however, as it would be a great exercise in circular logic and factual fallacies.
