Cant wait! Love that guy!
Arrgh, not another one. “Roger and Me” is the only interesting thing Moore has ever done but it appears his ego is as big as his, well, you know.
What Mikey doesn’t get is it is very hard to watch him on the big screen. Couple that with him whining about all things American and it makes him just not matter at all.
saw this before Pelham. The film should be good but this is just…. strange.
Love Moore, but I have to admit there was only one word that described my feelings about this teaser…WEAK!!!!!!!
In certain theatres around the country, as audiences watched it, they were being videotaped by people affiliated with the film, as theatre ushers, true to the teaser’s instructions, really did walk out amongst the patrons, with buckets in hand, wearing T-shirts with the slogan ‘Save our CEOs’.
Whether anyone actually put any money in the buckets is another thing…
I wonder if Mr. Moore will talk about the Fed Reserve monetary policies of 2002-2003 or Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac, before he blames the world’s problems on free market…

bwaha .. . bwahaha . . . . free market? . . . bwahahahahahahahah!
*ahem* free market . . . .
As a hard core conservative (and notice I didn’t say Republican), I never thought I’d find myself saying this, but:
I think Michael Moore and I are going to be on the same side on this one!
I can proudly say, i have never seen one of your movies. How about passing around another can for you Mike. A brain transplant is affordable and you could probably get the gastric bypass thrown in as part of the package you dishonest, communist piece of………..
¿Are all capitalists proud off being ignorants? if it is so that’d very much explain todays world crisis… seems like the “buy X you get Y for free” formula didn’t work out so good.. but ¿who is there to blame? every ignorant would buy a morgage if they get a world crisis for free !!!
Rocky dear, quit boxing your head is really messed up…
This guy seems to have finally been given everything he wanted, it would seem, and he still complains? Maybe everything he wanted wasn’t best for America after all. He’s an arrogant fat bag of shit.
The only reason I’d see is to watch the end credits. Just to see if he’d acknowledge all his funding sources for the film. ‘Cause you know he wouldn’t spend a dime of his own cash for it.
does anyone care about this self promoting clown any more, i know it’s become fashionable to bash the guy but…oh fuck it, i’m gonna bash him too. I can buy the argument that his films are biased polemic, and that’s fine – it’s the self serving inaccuracies and outright bullshit that bother me. And this is not coming from a drudge moron, but a liberal who really bought into this guy’s BS at first. On a purely commercial basis, sure, i’ll tip my hat to him but as a bringer of truth and justice….errrr…not so much.
Are they rushing this film? Why the amateur trailer? And no title? That’s really, really poor marketing.
Lots of flagpin yellow ribbon Republiturds here taking a break from watching Nascar (while their enlistment forms gather dust on the shelf) to slander a great American patriot who has done much to bring awareness to the many crimes and frauds perpetrated on the American people by nefarious corporations. Were all the men’s room stalls taken, boys? Keep tapping your feet for wholesome GOP family values. Give my regards to Larry Craig and Jeff Gannon. LOL
Wonder if he’ll pin any blame at all on the Obama administration? Didn’t Moore shout to the heavens that Obama would save us all? Is he gonna show how we were all bamboozled and our liberal agenda has been thrown under the bus in order to cowtow to his financial masters.
DADT? Nah, doesn’t have time. Abortion? Not his top priority. Single payer healthcare, oh no, wouldn’t want to piss off the insurance companies. Torture criminal action, oh shut up whiny liberals. Home owner aide, nah, fuck em! There’s much more important things, like making sure the banks and wall street guys don’t lose their moolahahaha!
Oh yeah, and taking over GM was a ‘superhero’ move according to Mr. Moore. Dance with those that brung ya.
Let me know, Mike, when you’re ready to admit your mistake and I’ll shell out my $14 for ya.
he’s achieved the impossible – being totally on-the-nose and completely incoherent at the same time.
This guy is just as biased (and equally revolting) as uber-conservative Ann Coulter. Some of the issues I agree with Moore on, but the problem I have with his documentaries is selective editing to villify his opponents and not showing the disadvantages of what he’s for (whether it’s gun control, universal health reform, etc.).
Documentaries themselves are by their somewhat biased (depending on who sees and interprets it), depending on their subject matter, but Moore takes it to an extreme by not including the uglier side of the things he’s for. Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady did a beautiful job showing that in “Jesus Camp” (which is indefinitely more horrifying and fascinating than any horror film in the past 10 years).
The can he was holding should say “welfare state” on it but it’s not as sexy and far too hard to promote as evil.
love all the rude comments about michael moore’s weight… really original stuff.
yes, he’s a limbaugh for the left. at least he’s got good intentions vs. being a pill popping xenophobe.
admit it, kids – what Moore tried to expose in Roger & Me links to what’s happening today.
take it with a grain of salt, but now you also have to take it as non-partisan…
this guy’s movies are by definition not documentaries, just cheap stagecraft. he himself is irritating beyond belief. i fail to understand how anyone could be stupid enough to eat out of this guys hand.
i’m actually someone who likes michael moore…and, too me, roger & me is up there with errol morris (although, skeptical as i may be, i don’t see moore in morris’s league ever).
…but ya know something? i don’t feel the need to hear Michael Moore tell us all about AIG/Stearns/etc. I’m pretty sure everyone gets the rub on the current economic disaster without Michael Moore clarifying things for us.
I think Rocky sums it up best when he says he is proud that he’s never seen any of Moore’s films. So what is your problem with the man, Rock? If you don’t know his work or what he’s saying, how can you condemn it? Willful ignorance is not a virtue and it’s no basis for an argument. I hope to God you don’t represent the average American, because if you do, we’re all fucked.
The sum total of your argument is that Moore is a communist (based on…? The movies you never watched?) and that he’s fat. Wow. Strong stuff. You’ve got the makings of a great politician. Or at least a pundit — just repeat what other people tell you as forcefully as possible. God forbid you should look at someone’s work and judge it on its own merits.
File that one under post bush era and irrelevant.
Michael Moore doesn’t give a dick about the working man.
What can we learn from watching Michael Moore promoting his “still untitled Bailout-documentary”?
He could just call his film “Bailout” which makes the most sense, since that’s what lots of people call it. But he doesn’t. This way he achieves two things:
a) reinforces his brand and
b) ppl have to talk about the issue of the film. That’s genius.
As some have observed, when it comes to this topic, there isn’t a divide between left and right, but between classes. Looks like they’re right on.
Moore has three documentaries placing among the top ten on the all-time documentary chart including #1 – nothing to sneeze at.
The comments on here are so incredibly strange. Apparently it’s arrogant and offensive to make a movie about the global financial crisis and how it came to be as a result of greedy corporations?
Rocky, how can you say you’ve never seen one of his movies and then call his communist and say he needs a brain transplant?
Bailout Chick, what on Earth are you talking about? Or are you one of those precious overly sensitive beings who thinks just because somebody has money that they can’t think there’s anything wrong in the world? Jesus christ, what a piss weak line of thought.
You people make me sick. You’re probably not a size 2, either.
