Fighting the lies of the Bush administration with lies of his own and thus making him no better than Bush himself. Definitely not a source for factual information which makes this "documentary" completely worthless for anyone who really wants to get anything out of it.

Is it propaganda or is it a stunning expose of the first four years of W's time as President? The fact that we have this debate over the film proves that it IS that compelling. Call him whatever you want, but Michael Moore can throw together a documentary like no one's business.

Enjoyable, but it can be manipulative. Don't watch if you cannot digest Moore's politics. It's pretty poor as an attack film on Bush, he could've done a lot more and a fair amount of what's included isn't really interesting. Moore's skills here are quite clear, but the film is flawed.

Manipulative, one-sided, blah blah blah, but in 2004 we were deep in the thick of goose-stepping, Dixie Chicking, with-us-or-against-us, beating-the-drums-of-war, rah rah, god bless George Bush and the Republican Party bullshit, and it was a pretty scary time, so although it would have been easy to dismiss four or even two years later, I admire anyone who stood up against Bush back in '04.

While Michael Moore may be the most successful idiot in the film world, the way he presents his documentaries (even without all the facts) can easily sway you to his point of view (that is, until you know all the facts that he failed to make apparent).

One of a very few movies that I have paid to see in a theatre more than once. The audiences ranged from teenagers to elderly. It prompted spontaneous outbursts from time to time during the movie (Brittney Spears was roundly booed) and both times I saw it in the theatre, there was a standing ovation at the end. I believe history will show this movie to be a lot closer to the truth than the BS put forth by George Bush and his buddies. We'll see.

Many saw the footage of Dubya sitting still for 7 minutes in front of schoolchildren after learning of the 9/11 attacks as a great act of journalism. Instead, it illustrates the too often ignored filmmaking skills of Michael Moore as he provides insight into the ineptitude, callousness, and incompetence of a villain. From there, the war's mismanagement comes into focus--wonderfully documented via some heartfelt interviews with young people in Flint, Michigan. A classic time capsule of an era.

Michael Moore hates George W. Bush. Hates him so much that he hurt what could have been a great movie by going too far in using catty voice-over insults while he could have just let the images speak for themselves. I find most of Michael Moore's movies interesting, and while I often agree with a lot of his political ideas I don't necessarily love how he puts them out there. They seem like they are trying to incite vitriol more than intelligent conversation. It's a shame really.

Excellent, but not quite as excellent as Bowling for Columbine. Moore wisely keeps himself out of the movie for the most part, though it could have used a little bit more of his humor. It gets bogged down occasionally on tangents. For instance, the bit about the military recruiters is enlightening, but goes on far too long. And a lot of the information could have been summarized much more efficiently. There's plenty of good stuff, though.

This movie is manipulative, and presents things that arn't quite true as if they were through supposition (et cetera). At the same time there is also a lot of factual information, just a little out of context and squewed to fit Moore's adjenda (which is not a value judgment, but an observable fact and independant of your agreement on it). This film is a docudrama, not a documentary (which are impartial). If you don't like GW Bush though, it's good.

Propaganda at its finest, "Reverend" Moore preached to the choir once again...and we all said "amen". Moore never claimed to be anybody's journalist, and, (therefore), presented things as he saw them. There was certainly a high dosage of bias in the finished product. But what's funny is that most of the footage used for this movie has been proven to have not been taken out of context. Think about it. Don't be dumb this November, as many of you were four years ago!

"Fahrenheit 9/11" drags horribly in its first hour -it reminded me more of a news report than a film. It focuses on Moore's main weakness as a filmmaker, his questionable research (like we need proof that Bush is a moron). However, the second hour is a vast improvement, emphasizing on Moore's trademark irony, humor, cleverness and the occasional (obvious, but effective) emotional manipulation. There is some fascinating footage that makes this terribly biased film compelling and worth-watching.

No one can deny Michael Moore is a gifted documentarian that knows how to entertain his audience. F 9/11 sided to be sure. It does make the audience feel smarter than they really are.

The failings of Bush/the WOT doesn't give Moore carte blanche to distort facts and confuse the issue with accusations that lead nowhere. Presenting pre-invasion Iraq as he does discredited him among a lot of people, and is emblematic of the frustration I feel at Moore for fumbling the criticisms that needed so badly to be made at the time.

What saddens me most about Moore is the incredible amount of foresight the guy has. He hits the nail on the head so many times with this movie (and his others), but he achieves is by completely distorting facts. While I may agree with his views on a lot of what happened, I can't endorse the method which is really no better than the people he's going after. I don't feel that Moore had any obligation to "present both sides," rather, to present his honestly. He doesn't do that.

This movie only brings down the American moral during a time of turmoil. The facts presented are misleading. Even if you don't believe in what is happening you should not be able to profit from the misinterpretation of the facts or you bias opinion that degrades the President of the United States. I don't have a problem with him being outspoken but profiting off it.

Moore is always fun (for me) but this does start to feel a tad suffocating. Too many tantrums and tangents that could have been cut and made room for more interesting and revealing information, that could have been just as scathing but without the cries of "bias". Yet, the way he handled the actual 9/11 incident was tasteful yet stirring.

Okay, here's the thing; I am a progressive/liberal, and I completely support this documentary being viewed, but I do not support Moore's judgement of what information he would use. I applaude the use of facts, but not the process of choosing some and avoiding others just to make a point. When you do that you simply come off as exaggerated, and that's exactly what this documentary is, an exaggeration.

There are good parts, there are bad parts, there are some exaggerated scenes with Moore shows -- pretty blatantly I might add -- his agenda, there are some scenes where he's right on. I don't disagree with Moore on the points he makes a fair amount of the time, but I'm not also in tune with the ways he goes about expressing them. But this is also entertaining, despite the sometimes awful, maddening, cringe-inducing scenes.
