This has to be one of the most pointless and dull comentaries ever released. Somwbody might have thought that having interns to a omentary was clever but this is nothing more than two hours of people saying absolutly nothing.

This is a fun and innovative approach to the dilemma of the commentary track for a documentary. What was Michael Moore supposed to do? Talk for two hours about a documentary that he narrates? Essentially talking over himself? Instead, this was brilliant. He got the behind the scenes people, the people who made him look good, the people who are usually ignored and never given a voice, and he let them ramble for two hours about nothing in particular. Admittedly, the idea is far greater than the result. Patient listeners will learn interesting tidbits about what it's like to work for Michael Moore and what it's like to be an intern or an assistant. However, there's a reason why not many documentaries are made about these subjects. This commentary is great to experience once, but only if you really like Moore's work, or really like interns and assistants. OR if you've BEEN an intern or assistant at some time in your life, you will REALLY understand where they're coming from. Apart from that, it is skippable.
