[first lines]
Gilbert: All right, so apparently they erased my ad off the internet.
Michael: Well, I don't really know what the terms of use are, but it says here, flagged and removed.
Gilbert: [reading] Conduct: You agree not to post or otherwise make available content that is unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, pornographic, libelous, and harasses, debases, or is hateful towards... well, I don't think any of these things apply.

Wow...Wow...Wow...

I thought this was a real documentary...towards the end, there was some character flaws, didn't seem right somehow...but still believable! In fact, it was so believable that I actually came on the internet to see if this was real or not...

Well done!! Well done indeed. I wish I had thought of this myself. I can't believe I had not heard of this movie before and just happened to stumble on it on Netflix. I spent the whole time of the movie feeling sorry for Matt, and also the Mom for mortgaging her house for the movie. LOL

Brilliant!! A MUST SEE!!!
