Editorial Reviews

This documentary of his journey is made in the feisty spirit of independent media, budgeted at a tiny fraction of Moore's recent films. It acts like a time machine, returning us to the weeks prior to the November 2, 2004, election, when campuses across the country were exhilarated by a sense of hope and urgency. Moore masterfully foments this energy, speaking to audiences as large as fifteen thousand. He riles up the crowd with his hilarious improvisation, riffing off the day's headlines or responding to hecklers. He also brings a star-studded lineup of friends---we see appearances and performances by Roseanne Barr, Eddie Vedder, Viggo Mortensen, Steve Earle and Joan Baez, among others.

4.0 out of 5 stars Moore charging the students, trying to get people to vote September 27, 2008
Format:DVD
"Slacker Uprising" is a very good and revealing documentary. It documents Michael Moore's 2004 Tour to get the "slackers" to register and vote. He travels to college campuses giving speeches, giving away slacker necessities (clean underwear and ramen noodles) and getting people to register.

Across the country, he goes to the key states, along with a number of famous guests (R.E.M., Eddie Vedder, Tom Morello, Viggo Mortensen, etc.). As he goes along this Tour of the country he encounters strong opposition, especially in the conservative states. As businessmen try to bribe student government with money to ban Michael Moore from college campuses (Free Speech anyone?!), and some actually succeed in banning him (in California of all places), Moore goes on trying to reach out to students.

This is probably the least biased of Moore's documentary and shows his trip throughout the country as he gathers supporters for the Kerry campaign. This is a very interesting documentary released as the 2008 Election nears, maybe merely for effect. But, maybe also to raise some consciousness about a citizen's right and duty to vote, which ultimately, Moore's main message.

5.0 out of 5 stars Slacker Uprising September 16, 2008
Format:DVD
Whenever Michael Moore produces a documentary that wakes up our sleeping complacent citizenry, I want to see it. I know he enrages those who prefer fiction, who like the status quo: the "I've got mine, now you get yours" economic/social attitude and the "I've got mine, now I'll ram mine down your throat" religious attitude.
The outrageous fiction and arrogant lies we have been blithely accepting, especially over the past 8 years, has brought America to its knees. I hope Michael continues to hold up a mirror to us.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Good September 23, 2008
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I was mystified at the many scathing reviews this latest offering from Michael Moore received. I hesitated to watch it, because I read these reviews before viewing the free movie download online. Not to worry! The humor, honesty, and decency of his previous films are all here in spades. I wonder what inspires such vicious attacks on someone who insists on pursuing his truth--even if one disagrees with him.
Overall I found the film very entertaining (note ramen noodles and underwear). Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth watching September 23, 2008
Format:Amazon Instant Video
In these last few weeks before election day, Mike Moore has released this movie free to anyone who wants to see it. Filled with scenes from the 'Slacker tour' of 2004, M.M. shows us how every vote counts and just how important it is to be informed and to take part in the Democratic process. With his usual sense of humor intact, Mike reminds us just how much work it takes to bring about change in our democracy. I am pleased to be able to distribute this film as I wish, and I applaud Amazon for making the Hi-Res version available for online viewing.
Personally, I enjoyed this film, and the rekindling of spirit that it brought to my sense of urgency about this election. With banks failing and people getting killed needlessly in Iraq, it is indeed time to take this country back!
Thanks again, Michael Moore!

4.0 out of 5 stars A pep rally, but not revolting like most September 23, 2008
By Ali G
Format:Amazon Instant Video
In a country where many citizens love to call Michael Moore's films deceptive (even though most of the people making this claim have never seen his films), it will be worthless for them to repeat such discourse when the majority of the film is merely a Democratic pep rally, with some facts peppered in to remind us just how close we were to winning last time, and that our efforts do matter. If anyone should be expected to be bitter about the 2004 election, it's Michael Moore, who put so much of his time and resources into avoiding another 4 years. But he is not bitter, he remains hopeful, that the young people in this country will do the right thing this year. To those of you reading this who voted for Bush in 2004, I want you to look at the state of our country at this very moment--Bush is going against some of the biggest ideals the Republican party stands for by having our government bail out the businesses that his administration screwed over, with money the government does not have (over 1 trillion!) Clearly he could care less about the mess he is leaving the next administration with... but this time let's remind not only the young slackers, but also their parents, that if we do not want to see our economy completely disintegrate we need to elect Obama, who will bring a smart budget that cuts out wasteful spending (war in Iraq has cost over $556 BILLION) and use federal dollars in a way that will bring our country back up, like the successful Democratic president FDR did. This movie reminded me that everything we do matters when it comes to the election, so I'm going to my local Democratic headquarters to make some phone calls.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Emotional Documentary of True Patriotism September 23, 2008
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I laughed, I cried, I cringed, I was moved to anger and swayed by compassion. Mr. Moore, my greatest gratitude to you for not only touring prior to the last election, but for making this film available to us all free of charge prior to this election. I pledge to do my part in spreading the word about this film, about our current state of affairs, and about how every person can truly make a difference. I think we have all been challenged by you, Mr. Moore, to encourage others to take ownership of their democracy and vote in this 2008 election. Thank you for your tenacity, your patriotism and your generosity and God Bless.

Yes, another Michael Moore film. And what's more, one with a lot of ego-enhancement for Michael. And also one of blatant liberalism. Read more
