Anyone who voted this movie a "0" is completely wrong. I'm not saying that I believe everything this movie tells me, but I'm not saying I don't believe it either. The point is not to take sides my fellow Americans. To Anyone who voted this movie a "0" is completely wrong. I'm not saying that I believe everything this movie tells me, but I'm not saying I don't believe it either. The point is not to take sides my fellow Americans. To completely put all your trust and faith into Bush or Moore is wrong. It is not un-American at all to distrust and disagree with our president. Again, I don't necessarily believe or take to heart what Moore has presented, but I respect the fact that he's going out on a limb to question someone of high authority. Moore isn't an "America hater", if anything he is more American by questioning and thinking freely. So don't take sides, because you don't have to. Think for yourself, and remember that questioning your government will never be a bad thing. Expand

A good documentary but your enjoyment of it will depend too much on how you feel about sensitive political issues. I believe that most of what is portrayed here is relevant and true and wish more people would at least have an open mind about this.

It's clear that Michael Moore often has his own agenda, but I'm sure if he could prove any of the things he says in this film, a lot of people would be in prison.

Some things are VERY interesting and really makes you think, while other stuff is complete bull meant to serve his personal agenda, never the less, it was entertaining and it does gives you something to think about.

Not EVERY soldier in Iraq is completely dissolutioned, has become a democrat, and likes to torture prisoners. But more importantly and more concretely, I happen to know about 10 friends who joined the military when I was around college age, guys who all grew up in one of the two wealthiest suburbs of Los Angeles. They all were raised in nice areas, with nice houses, had cars when they were 16, but felt the need to give service to their countries. And most of them happened to be white. Those people do exist. They are not ALL poor minorities who join the military as enlisted men. Moore's message is SO one-sided, that he drowns the power out of his well-reasoned message, which was stated toward the end of the movie: If these wonderful young people are willing to give their lives for our country, our leaders owe it to them not to go to war unless it's ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY. Such an elegant point, and something which could have been explored with more nuance than simply showing graphic images of bloody Iraqi citizens to prove that war is to be avoided at all costs. Was the military action in iraq absolutely necessary? You be the judge. I just wish that Moore given it a better shot. Expand

I'm a little puzzled by so many Democrats running so hard and fast away from Michael Moore at the convention this week when we all embraced him during the first 4 or 5 weeks of this film's release to the tune of $100M in box office I'm a little puzzled by so many Democrats running so hard and fast away from Michael Moore at the convention this week when we all embraced him during the first 4 or 5 weeks of this film's release to the tune of $100M in box office returns. Are we embarressed by it? Ashamed by it? Do we think it will fuel more votes for Nader? (it seems like this latter point may be the most important, as Nader is the only true anti-war candidate). In fact, I still think that Disney is the mastermind behind the F911 backlash. Disney knew that if they just released the film and made their modest proft, it wouldn't make much of a ripple. By rejecting the film, they created a furor with it, forcing the anti-Bush movement so far to the left that they alienanted all of the Clinton-Republicans and Clinton/Centrist democrats who are happy that Hussein is out of power. Give Disney a little credit here. They duped us all. Expand

A very superficial, but critical look at the events of 9/11 and everything that followed afterwards.

Having seen this in the late 2000's after previously watching many documentaries about 9/11 possibly being a conspiracy perpetrated by rich powerful men, possibly some in or with connections to people within the US government, I found this film to be really superficial and timid in asking any tough questions. I highly recommend you watch the Internet movie "Loose Change" instead, the 2nd edition if you can find it. But Fahrenheit 9/11 is alright, just don't use it as your main source of information.
