A brazen mixture of stand-up comedy, political commentary, CEO confrontations, and shenanigans with Random House tour escorts, The Big One (1997) follows Moore's book tour to promote Downsize This. In cities like Des Moines, Minneapolis, St. Louis, and Portland, Moore's lighthearted-sounding but deeply biting humor speaking before bookstore patrons is juxtaposed with painful-to-watch confrontations with security personnel at companies such as Procter & Gamble and PayDay. Moore speaks clandestinely with Borders employees organizing a union; a woman laid off from Ford attends Moore's Rockford, Illinois, bookstore visit the same day. Though slow in spots, frustrating if not depressing in others, it's intensely funny the rest of the time. The Big One is fundamental viewing.
On the bonus disc is a 13-minute featurette, "39 Cities in 23 Days." On the tour for his book Dude, Where's My Country?, Moore enthralls and amuses enthusiastic college crowds with points about the Bush-Saudi connections, voting machines, and "weapons of mass balloonery."

I would suggest purchasing it and watching it. Michael Moore may be more to the left than some, but god, hasn't anyone ever considered watching everything with a speculative eye? It's less biased than the news is - he reports, you decide, and most of it is things that should have been covered by the news in some fashion, but weren't.
Michael Moore is far more honest than the Republican talking heads (Rush, Coulter, Hannity). Watch, enjoy, investigate further.
The Bowling for Columbine DVD has 4 hours of extras including his Oscar acceptance speech and interviews. In the separate DVD, MM talks about how we need representation in our congress - like if there are 10% Greens(Independants, democrats, etc) in the U.S. - there should be 10% Greens in congress, he also talks about looking at other media sources besides the U.S. to find out what's actually going on here because our media doesn't tell us or ask the questions that they should.
Bowling for Columbine is about gun control and The Big One is about corporate downsizing and greed. Moore's work is always stuff which leaves you happy, thoughful and full of will to make a positive change. You will learn a lot!
Now i think all his films are very informative if you look at them through objective eyes. I know more now about these topics (ex: the war on Iraq) than before i saw his movies. If you hate these movies just ask yourself, "Is this the truth or more true that what you get from FOX news or ABC?"
If his words are so insincere, why has the president not sued him for slander?
And why can't anyone slamming the movie ever make any specific reference? It's always a general statement about michael moore being one explictive or another, and never about something he actually says. Could it be, maybe, that they don't even know why they hate him?

Haven't seen them all yet but Michael Moore shows a far-side view of the country's problems and usually pays the price for it.Published on December 8, 2012 by Alan

Great in theory, but someone screwed up: listing says "Columbine" is the 2-disc special edition, packaging says it's the 2-disc special edition (even lists the features! Read morePublished on November 11, 2011 by arejaytoo
