This is the only movie where there has been a successful lawsuit against Michael Moore - filed by former friend Larry Stecco who successfully argued that his portrayal in the movie was not an accurate reflection of his character ("False light invasion of privacy" is the legal term) and won. Stecco was interviewed attending a society fund raising ball and was made out to be a high-society rich pig who partied while people where starving outside. He was actually a lawyer who worked pro-bono for the poorer residents of Flint. See more »
I was kind of a strange child. My parents knew early on that something must have been wrong with me. I crawled backwards until I was two... It all began when my mother didn't show up at my first birthday party, 'cause she was off having my sister, and dad tried to cheer me up by letting me eat the whole cake. I knew then, there had to be more to life than this.

I first saw Roger & Me in a school film class and ever since it has always held a place in my top ten list. If a movie could enrage, humor, disgust, and provoke you, this is certainly it. Michael Moore does an excellent job of bringing the issue of corporate downsizing from a numbers game to a human decency level, of which the Rabbit women is clearly representative. But, above all, Roger & Me is a great movie, which you'll leave laughing, but also shaking your head wondering how Roger Smith could do such a thing. But, hey, it made an awesome comedy/documentary didn't it?
