A year ago, my life had collapsed around me. I'd worked myself into exhaustion. My father died suddenly, and my relationships were in turmoil. Little did I know at the time, out of my greatest despair was to come the greatest gift. I'd been given a glimpse of a great Secret.

I found it kind of interesting - well-written, researched, acted and so on. It also had a few nuggets of good advice (think positively about life, use creative visualization to practice something, etc). Some company has done quite a good job developing a product that would sell well.
However, I felt that the overall production was similar to promoting a sugar pill to cure everything from liver damage to mongolism. No amount of positive thinking will cure most cancers or heart disease, or cause companies to stop sending bills or cause money to come into my account. I find that a positive attitude, lots of hard work, budgeting, good connections, a supportive family, luck and many other factors help a lot. So does eating a good diet, driving safely, purposefully pursuing goals step by step for many years, etc. And a strong immune system and antibiotics are a much safer bet in keeping infectious diseases away.
I found the movie to be just another slick attempt to make some money by appealing to what some people want to hear, even if they are old ideas and outrageous claims. It shows me that one can say almost anything and people will believe it. What a con.
On the positive side, a few comments in the movie did reinforce in me that turning negative complaining into positive support and searching can be very helpful, as is finding the wonder in everything you do. A good lesson for me which I will try to put more into practice.
Overall, a discerning audience would be much beter off reading books on the art of positive thinking. Or if you want to believe in miracle cures, find an organized religion that promotes them. At least they may speak with conviction, however misplaced it may be.
