This film is aimed at the intelligencia. But if we're so smart, why do they give us everything sugar coated and all watery, like weak coffee??? C'mon people, we're the intelligencia.

I have never yelled to myself "I want content" so much in a documentary-lite film.
If you can see it with friends, put up the MST3K heads on the TV and start making wisecracks. Really. You won't bellieve what some of them say. (And hey, I'm a way open minded liberal saying this.)
