Some commentators have sneered at the film for not offering anything new. They have misunderstood Spurlock's intentions. He is attempting a personal cinema essay that uses the lighter touch at times to highlight the issues, to show that many people around the world, Christian, Muslim or men and women of no religious faith, believe in peace and understanding, and that this is a goal for everyone.
Spurlock has the great cinematic advantage that he comes across as a genial personality taking us into his confidence as friends. So does Michael Moore whose films are sometimes mind and emotions boggling with their exposes. Morgan Spurlock is more humorous, even flip as he makes his points. - Fr Peter Malone, Australian Catholic Office for Film and Broadcasting (click below for full review)
