When Michael Moore announced his new, unexpected documentary’s title, expectations were high.
Was the instigator behind Bowling for Columbine and Fahrenheit 9/11 going to burn U.S. foreign policy to the ground? Did he have some sort of shocking exposé on his hands?
Not so much – instead, Where to Invade Next is more cutesey than confrontational, more endearing than incendiary.
The film simply focuses on Moore as he visits various European countries to discover how America can benefit from their attitudes toward health, education, sex and crime.
It’s frequently funny and entertaining enough, but its insights are far from revolutionary.
This is sociology for dummies – and even they might find Moore’s points overly laboured.Report Typo/Error
