POM Wonderful Presents: The Greatest Movie Ever Sold - Movie Review

The Greatest Movie Ever Sold (PG-13) 90 minutes C+
Sell, Sell, Sell

Starring Morgan Spurlock and Ralph Nader

The Greatest Movie Ever Sold is the new Morgan Spurlock (Super Size Me) documentary about marketing and advertising.  Here we follow Spurlock as he attempts to finance this entire film (1.5 million) through product placement.  It's an original idea but one that doesn't teach us anything we didn't already suspect. 

While I enjoyed the film and think that Spurlock is a unique talent, this one was a little spotty, a little cutesy and didn't linger in my mind afterwards.  Not bad, but not as good as I'd hoped.
