User Reviews

 
Awful Documentary
28 February 2017 | by bobhelmsSee all my reviews

There are so many worthy causes out there, millions of people in the United States alone that could use help. Yet here is a guy who is wasting time and money on a completely ridiculous concept, that somehow animals should be given the same rights as humans. Waste of time and money to have made the documentary, it was filled with a bunch of ultra left wing loony nut jobs whose arguments could so easily be dismissed by any court of law. One feels dumber for having watched the entire show.
