    Moore's fireball of a movie could change your life. It had me laughing with tears in my eyes.

    The film's title is never explained. What does Moore mean? Maybe it's that capitalism means never having to say you're sorry.

    This is the best movie of the year by far! Michael Moore should be given both an Oscar and the Nobel Prized for economics.
