    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. She is one ugly ultra white trash woman, and that has nothing to do with the abortion debate. I recorded it, and it was about 5 minutes of episode and 4 minute of commercials in the first hour; which killed the flow, and that is a big part of my bad rating. It was interesting that she never got an abortion. Expand

    It is a must-watch doc. ... The enduring impression of this film isn’t of the interested actors who found it convenient to use Norma McCorvey — it’s of McCorvey herself.

    AKA Jane Roe is constructed like a mystery, building toward a previously unseen interview with the late Norma McCorvey -- made famous by the abortion-rights case Roe v. Wade -- that she describes as her "deathbed confession." But the documentary is most intriguing as a profile of a woman who spent time as a lightning rod for both sides of the most divisive of political issues.

    AKA Jane Roe is both a must-see film as well as a deeply frustrating one. ... But if AKA Jane Roe is a fascinatingly humanizing tale of the life behind the lawsuit, it also suffers greatly from Sweeney's narrow focus on his subject's theatrical bent and "deathbed confession."
