Michael Moore combined his political beliefs and some PR objectives when he announced that unless Israeli authorities allowed the film to be shown in the West Bank and then-occupied Gaza, he would not agree to the film being released in Israel itself. The film ultimately did play in all the markets, because Palestinian officials authorized its showing in cinemas and Israeli officials said they were fine with it being screened, also pointing out that they did not have any issues with importing American films that weren't anti-Israel and that "Roger & Me" did not bother them.

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.

This movie really showed me what America's free enterprise system is about. Make your millions in producing automobiles in an American town, then run to Mexico where labor is cheap, and not offer any jobs to Americans. I loved it, very true, very deep.
I loved how Roger Smith dodged the film crews everytime they showed up. It was very good to show the effects of the plant closing shop. I never expected a true look into what happends to American workers.
I give this one 5 stars, and I realize now that our Free Enterprise System just keeps the poor, poor. And the wealthy get even more wealth. Our free enterprise system is a joke.
