    The first of Michael Moore's "rue lies" series. He actually did interview Roger, but decided NOT TO USE THE FILM FOOTAGE. Instead Moore constructs a fantasy about how difficult it is to see the big, bad industrialist. The people of Flint have been mortified by this propaganda piece for years. Moore is the ultimate hypocrite, making money by slurring the reputations of others, to fill his own pockets. By the way, does anyone out there really believe he dresses like a shlub? He's a multi-multi-milionaire. Really, get a grip.

    An okay documentary. I bought it used on video a year ago. I watched it because it focuses on jobs in Michigan and how people cope with losing them.

    Easily the best of Moore's films, perhaps because it was made before he started drinking his own bathwater. While it has the same semi-comic style of his later work, there is more restraint, and a more even handed dealing with the issue.

    It is a shame that one of the few persons who is spreading the news of the devastation caused by factor price equalization is the hated, toxic, mope, Michael Moore. This message needs to get out although it shall be almost impossible to put the toothpaste back into the tube. Factor price equalization is a concept noted by F. A. Hayek after World War II or even before. In a nutshell, when you have free trade and free markets, than the capitalist drive is to take the dollar, whether it be in capital, labor or less often, land and seek the cheapest yet most productive use of that dollar. That sounds terrific until you realize that "they" are taking, for instance, the job of some poor schmoo making $8.00 per hour, in a textile factory in North Carolina, (no doubt, John Edward's daddy's factory) and shipping it to Indonesia where "they" have to pay eighty cents per hour. Let's assume that it costs $2.00 an hour to ship the item back to North Carolina, and a large profit is made. Th... Read more

    Another realistic look at the country and how the corporations and their business plans affect their local communities. During the time of GM posperity, Flint was a lively place. Then with greed and the need to stay profitable, jobs were outsourced and workers were treated terrible. Flint turned into a crime infested ghetto with no hope in sight. This situation exists in Michigan today and the situation is further aggrevated with GM and its recent 30,000 job cuts at its various locations. Now, homes in Flint, Michigan can commonly be found on eBay for $5,000.

    This film, like all other Moore films is funny and entertaining, but the facts are grossly distorted. If this film was to be a lampoon of some sort, it would rate a higher score. But as it is intended as a facual report that spews lies and distortion, I give it one star. I won't reward lies.

    A few years ago, I believed this garbage. After his later fantasies, I'm a big fan of General Motors!

    The best of Moore's feature films. A very dismaying and heartbreaking expose of the remorseless and uncaring nature of corporate decision making, and the failure of those supposedly in charge in the auto industry to protect their companies, their workers and the towns they operated in for the sake of the bottomline. Just shows you that it doesn't take much in the way of brains to make money, and that short-sightedness and greed in the so-called minds of our corporate leadership usually results in killing the goose that lays the golden eggs. What was truly reprehensible in this film was the absolute arrogance and self-centered attitudes of the putative leaders of town and industry. These money-grubbing scumbags should have bones rammed up their collective butts so the dogs can drag them through the streets.

    I don't want to give away the movie, but Roger Smith's answer was respectable and accurate, even if it was a little cruel. That's business.
