Some object to more than just the title, but have you seen it yet?

My name is Jerry Johansen. I am one of the sponsors working with Kevin Leffler in the development of this movie.

For the record, we suppose, in hindsight, that one could deduce a violent read in the title, "SHOOTING MICHAEL MOORE", however, that has never been the intent. Honestly, it sounds more like a convenient response to the movie title because the individuals mentioning it don't like the movie's subject matter anyway, and probably will never see the movie while portraying themselves of the movie producers intentions.

So, what are/were the intentions of this film? It is an expose'/documentary about a film maker and his less-than-honest means of creating his work. We are not alone in this assessment. Many others who have been on the short end of dealing with Mr. Moore, and often were actually in the movie, were cheated out of compensation they were promised by Moore.

The really sad part about Moore's unscrupulous behavior is that he screws over the little guy, the people he portrays himself to protect, to be an advocate. IT JUST ISN'T SO.

Another interesting observation: Moore could have done all of his movies with honest means. He certainly had enough money to compensate those he promised to do so.

I personally do not get off on railing people...on making someone look bad for the sake of that alone. BUT, I won't look the other way when the lesser among us are being shafted by those who both know better and do it anyway. Shame on you, Mr. Moore.

When this movie gets out, and I mean "when", please see it. Sure, there might be a bit of money to be made. But you will see in the credits that Leffler has promised a portion of the profits to those who participated in this movie....and Mike's...Where Mike had promised to pay, but paid NOTHING.

In Sicko, Mike shows how wonderful the health care is in Cuba. NOT. What he showed is ONLY for politicians and high-ranking military. It exists on ONE floor in ONE building. You will see our attempts to get a common Cuban citizen into the SAME hospital....see what happens. Then we show you where the common people go for a hospital. It is worse than any third world country.

First and foremost, before anything else, this movie is about principles. Doing the right thing. What goes around, comes around. Like the subtitle says, "see how he likes it". We use EXACTLY the same tactics that MM uses. And, of course he hates it.

Our objective is to release this movie very soon, nationally. We won't say where because Mr. Moore tends to run interference and we just don't need the headache.

Your comments, either way, are always welcome. Email me directly, if you'd like.
