Good insight into our society and economy based on consumerism. Comments from Trump, Chomsky, and Nader were insightful to say the least. I'm reminded of a Tony Robbins CD where he talks about neuro-associations and linking pleasure to products. One marketing guy said to Morgan "it's addiction" - bold film with a sly grin.

This film was a quick watch. Not quite on par with Supersize Me, but interesting if you're into advertising. Strange how marketing and products take precedent over art in our current "buy, buy buy" society.

An interesting look at how corporations pay to place their products in popular entertainment, and how their financial influence can affect the outcome of a film.

“POM Wonderful Presents the Greatest Movie Ever Sold” is definitely one-of-a-kind. You’ll never watch a movie the same way again.

Informative and entertaining. Instead of informing the viewer about the process of subtle and not-so subtle product placement, Morgan shows the inner workings of the process, by going through the negotiations with various companies for rights to be affiliated with his documentary. A riot to watch. Families should enjoy this with their teens to help develop their awareness as an educated consumer and not be indebted to corporations.

First, he was bugged by the almighty burger, now Oscar-nominated renegade filmmaker, Morgan Spurlock, is biting the hand that feeds him by exposing Hollywood's dirtiest little secret: the games they play to get advertisers' products strategically placed in movies and on television. Spurlock uses his irreverent comedic style to infiltrate corporate boardrooms and ad agency pitch meetings to show how far they will go without our even knowing it. Any you thought the advertising aimed at children during their favorite shows was obvious......

Lots of advertizing, but it is fully transparent, educational and entertaining. Worth a watch!

I agree, it was interesting to see how much power advertising has over film making. BIG BUCKS!!

Although not as strong as Supersize Me, this movie was hilarious. I found it interesting to watch the whole process of getting a movie sponsor, from start to finish, the rights the sponsors have in the movie making process and how the movie and the subsequent advertising are linked. The commercials done throughout the film, some with a more seamless transition than others, can be integrated into films.

He's not selling out, he's buying in.
