      The Greatest Movie Ever Sold plays smartly to Spurlock's strengths, and the result is a breezy, albeit not particularly enlightening documentary.

      Kyle M More of a practice than an exposé nor exemplar diving with factual obviousness (though curious avoidance from those contacts), it's the influence providing additional insight as a significant takeaway besides finding and factoring amusement in enjoying another Spurlock's investigative, hypothetically experimental endeavor. (B) Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 10/04/23 Full Review Audience Member Fast, funny, and definitely not boring. Spurlock somehow pulls off his gimmick with heart and purpose. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 08/20/21 Full Review Audience Member I frickin loved this documentary. Morgan Spurlock really opened my eyes to the world of commercialism and its infiltration in media. A must see for sure. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Audience Member it's so fucking shit that it makes it good. holy fuck i hate this movie. but at the same time love it so damn much. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/12/23 Full Review Audience Member Really hard to watch. The content was dry and not interesting. Also, the movie fell way short of the contingencies required to recieve a payout from POM, which was the title sponsor. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Well done. To begin with I was unsure it would hit the mark, but it turns out that it does. Hats off to the companies who invested as well.

      Sara Reihani Bitch Media With advertisers harvesting our online data, analyzing our brain chemistry, and moving their tactics to insidious levels of sci-fi creepiness, is knowing that we are being manipulated really the best we can do? Jan 7, 2021 Full Review Derek Malcolm London Evening Standard It ought to be sharper. But that is not Spurlock's way, as evinced by his disappointingly self-regarding Where in the World Is Osama Bin Laden? Rated: 3/5 Oct 14, 2011 Full Review Anthony Quinn Independent (UK) He gets celebrity interviewees to blah on the subject -- Ralph Nader, Noam Chomsky, Quentin Tarantino -- and still fails to dispel the mood of utter pointlessness. Rated: 2/5 Oct 14, 2011 Full Review Mike Massie Gone With The Twins Rather than dryly presenting facts, Spurlock's statistics and figures are shown with witty ideas, obvious mockery, and sharp sarcasm. Rated: 7/10 Nov 30, 2020 Full Review Richard Propes TheIndependentCritic.com Rather than being informative or pointed, Spurlock presents as mostly smug and smarmy. Rated: 2.0/4.0 Sep 9, 2020 Full Review Felicia Feaster Charleston City Paper It's the kind of gag that could perhaps fuel a TV comedy skit, but as a feature-length film concept, it's wafer thin.
