Are you serious?
Documentaries hardly ever make any real money. When one pulls in tens of millions of dollars (more than any other ever)you really cannot conclude it was shitty through and through. Something must've been done really well, whether it was the subject matter, the humour, M.M. himself, or weak competition at box office.

I'm sorry, but if Micheal Moore was such idiot why do right-wingers spend so much time trying to pick him apart. I actually think MM is on of the best things the left has got going for them right now. Personally, I think he just uses the same tactics a lot of right wingers use. I think they're just better at disguising it.
