The film officially is released today (In New York) and lots of theaters (including AMC here in Olathe) are showing early screenings tomorrow evening. So, without further ado, here's the reviews! (so rhymey!)
"With Sicko, Michael Moore has very nearly cured himself of what ails him."
Jamie S. Rich, DVDtalk.com
"This is Moore's biggest, best and most impassioned work."
Claudia Puig, USA Today
"..."Sicko” is the least controversial and most broadly appealing of Mr. Moore’s movies."
A. O. Scott, New York Times
In fact, it seems that almost every single reviewer (aside from the New York Post...shocker!!!) has really been impressed with Moore's latest outing. It's currently getting a 93% positive rating on Rottentomatoes.com where they average all the major reviewers in the country. Something like Ocean's 13 (which I also enjoyed) is only getting a 71% positive rating.
So, yeah, everyone likes it except The New York Post and these awesome young people who are already protesting the film:
Is that a young person in the back with a "Captalism" t-shirt?!
Mmmmmm, at least she's dressed in a sexxxy nurse outfit.
I guess they had more signs than people to actually hold them. Poor bastards.
