This film is intended to provoke an emotional response. It would be more effective with some solid documentation, not just assertions, animated hyperbolic graphs and a few heart wrenching stories. The film shows several serious problems in America today including, under employment, single parent families, lack of education (nutritional and general), and absence of close knit community (ie. where is Barbie's support system?).
