A Fun, Likable Adventure!
7 May 2006 | by See all my reviews

An ambitious filmmaker travels across America -- from Flint, Michigan to the streets of the Big Apple -- on a quest to peel back the layers and expose a buried truth for all to see. Sound familiar? Only this time it's Michael Wilson, not Moore, at the helm and the richer of the two Mikes is the villain, not the hero.

"Michael Moore Hates America" is a fun little film to be commended for exposing the deception and outright lies employed by the partisan Moore. We see how Moore doctored speeches by Charleton Heston, he of the evil gun rights lobby. We meet the upbeat soldier whose image Moore used (without permission) to blast the Bush administration. Just as appallingly, we see how Moore's smash hit "Fahrenheit 9/11" doctored a newspaper to fit his beliefs of what the facts ought to be. It's all very fascinating regardless of whether you support Moore, who apparently thought no one would uncover or care about his fibs.

In a parody of Moore's own "Roger & Me", Wilson spends the film in a desperate attempt to track down Moore for an honest interview. He sends flowers, writes letters, makes phone calls and goes on television. But the closest he ever comes is when he takes advantage of an open mike question session at a college where Moore is speaking. Alas he is unceremoniously rebuked... it seems Moore can dish it, but he sure can't take it.

Not everyone could have made such an entertaining rebuttal to Moore. Cheap anti-Moore quickies like "Fahrenhype 9/11" and the near laughable "Celsius 41.11" just don't cut it, nevermind that only six people saw them. The likable Wilson, every bit the everyman Moore wants to be, is a delightful and honest screen presence. He's not at all vicious toward Moore and seems more interested in creating an uplifting work about the power of the American spirit than in getting into a heavyhanded political debate. Of course even this is in sharp contrast to Moore, who paints a picture of America as the Land of Non-Opportunity where evil politicians are out to rip apart Average Joe.

If you're looking for a mindless right-wing "we're right, they're wrong" piece (like what Moore does from the left), this isn't it. If you're looking for a positive, honest documentary that isn't really political at all, catch "Michael Moore Hates America."
