2. First time?
Prepare to be pissed off for a few days. Get some Kleenex ready, too.

The first time I saw it was the first night it was in the movie theaters. I couldn't sleep. Finally fell asleep around 4 am. I was trembling with anger when I left the theater.

Tell us what you think!

6. Get ready... it's VERY emotional
I also saw it the first day it came out- PACKED theater, people sitting on the floors. Management came in before it started and asked us all to "behave ourselves". Humongous theater too- about 700.

Anyway... I laughed.. I was cried... I got angry... and I sobbed.

The movie brings out ALOT of emotion.

After I saw it I also couldn't sleep that night. I just kept hearing that piece of sh*t say - "This is a great crowd. The haves and the have mores. Some people call you elite. I call you my base".
juxtapose that up against the grief of Lila Lipscomb......

10. Two words: ELECTION FRAUD
The evangelicals are gloating that F9/11 actually drove people away from the Democrats and towards Bush. But who do you believe?

11. I don't get it...
I really just don't get it. Anyone who could excuse that piece of shit for the lies justifying the Iraq invasion is brain dead. Moore's use of Orwell's quote from "1984" was dead on.

13. I loved his use of Orwell, too
Did you snort soda out your nose and miss Michael's parting words like I did? I never heard them until we got the DVD because the theater erupted in disbelief and laughter over Bush's words.

12. I only saw it once
and I doubt I could watch it now after the election. It'd just be too damn depressing.
