Michael Moore’s feature-length documentary films are synonymous with one thing: lies. Before Moore started making films, documentaries were always 100% factual. Except for maybe Triumph of the Will, of course. That one took some liberties. But regardless, one of the things the internet has proven itself good at — in addition to pornography and pictures of cats with writing on top of them — is debunking the ‘truth’ in Michael Moore’s movies.
As I recently saw an advanced screening of Michael Moore’s latest, Sicko, which purports to be an ‘attack’ on the American health insurance and health care system, I thought I would take the opportunity to take a first crack at revealing the lies, untruths, mistruths, fibs, omissions and biasedness inherent to this vaguely cinematic work.

Things get positively godly this week as Evan Almighty debuts and promptly bombs, proving once and for all that Americans only like their religion when it’s wacky and involves Jennifer Aniston’s boobs. Other big stories this week include the relative success of 1408 — likely because people thought it was some sort of sequel to 300, which itself was a sequel to Seven — and the abject failure of the Angelina Jolie movie A Mighty Heart, likely because people thought it was some sort of sequel to A Mighty Wind.
