Where to Invade Next

What it's about:

Where to Invade Next is an expansive, rib-tickling, and subversive comedy in which Academy Award-winning director Michael Moore, playing the role of “invader,” visits a host of nations to learn how the U.S. could improve its own prospects. The creator of Fahrenheit 9/11 and Bowling for Columbine is back with this hilarious and eye-opening call to arms. Turns out the solutions to America’s most entrenched problems already exist in the world—they’re just waiting to be co-opted.

What the critics thought:

For anyone who's never seen a Michael Moore film and wants the entire experience at once - it's all here.
Jim Slotek - Toronto Sun 

(Moore has) made his most enjoyable film in years and also his most inspiring, the antidote to prevailing global doom and gloom.
Peter Howell - Toronto Star

Fans of Moore will appreciate his ideas behind the film. Those who aren't probably won't. To them I suggest moving to Germany, where your local doctor can write you a prescription for a three-week stay at a posh spa to relieve the tension.
Michael A. Smith – MediaMikes

The agenda is clear and it is propaganda of a kind, and disingenuous at times in what it omits, but it is still very interesting viewing about what really works when it comes to quality of life.
Aine O'Connor - Sunday Independent (Ireland)

By now we know that Moore is far from an objective maker of documentaries; his films always have their own slant, but despite that, it's hard to refute some of the good ideas here.
Jeffrey M. Anderson  - Common Sense Media

A crazy-like-a-fox documentary hellbent on seeing the best in people. Other people. Not us Americans. Turns out we suck at practicing what we preach. It's classic Michael Moore.
Peter Travers - Rolling Stone
