An excellent, thought-provoking, but still enjoyable documentary
12 March 2013 | by (US) – See all my reviews

The combination of a light touch and humor, real emotion (halfway into filming the on-screen narrator finds he is going to have a baby, so suddenly the issue involved gets much more personal), intelligent presentation of facts without screaming in your ear or overstatement, and the (sadly comic) attempts to be balanced and get the chemical industry to go on the record add up to a much more enjoyable and effective environmental documentary than most.

This is the kind of film that makes you want to change your own habits, and believe you can make a difference, while never feeling like you're sitting through a 'this is good for you' lecture. It reminded me of Michael Moore's documentaries, in its playful tone about a serious issue, but this has a lighter, less sarcastic, more lovable hand.

This would also be a terrific educational tool for 'tweens and teens (there's probably a bit too much slightly, good natured ribald humor for little kids, and some of the sad images of wildlife killed or injured by plastics might be a bit upsetting.

Kudos to all involved for this timely and important work that will certainly effect my relationship to plastics in my world.
