Biased? Yes. Wrong? No!
19 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Yes, you do get mostly one side of the argument. Is this a bad thing? No! Bottled water companies have had YEARS AND YEARS and MULTIPLE PLATFORMS to spew their arguments about why their product is great, so what's so wrong about one little movie trying to counter their claims? People have a tendency to attack individuals rather than corporations, and its just not fair. This movie brings up MANY different arguments and reasons why bottled water is bad. You will most definitely learn something from watching it, and most likely, you will learn a lot. They hit on everything--chemical pollution, plastic pollution and the mile-wide plastic pools in the oceans, water privatization/community water rights, and so on. This isn't just about the environment, and it isn't just about people--it's about both. Great documentary hits on many issues surrounding bottled water, and is well filmed. Watch it!
