    A documentary about product placement funded entirely by the proceeds from product placement. That’s the conceit behind Pom Wonderful Presents The Greatest Movie Ever Sold, dreamed up by Super-Size Me director Morgan Spurlock.

    Now Spurlock is a fool hardy filmmaker – wearing hillbilly facial hair in New York City takes guts. However, ever since he went looking for Osama Bin Laden in his last suck-u-mentary, he has lost his way creatively. (He didn’t find him – but did he have…

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Morgan Spurlock has built a reputation for going all the way to make a point, and this film is no different. The majority of the movie requires a very odd suspension of disbelief: "I am watching a movie about the development and structuring of the movie I am watching". It's almost as if a behind-the-scenes / making-of feature on a DVD graduated to a full film.

    "You have a couple choices. One choice is to allow yourself to be co-opted a little bit. You dip your toe in the water. Pretty soon you're putting your foot in the water. Pretty soon you're swimming. And you don't think you're changing. You just say 'okay I'll do a little more'...you end up swimming. That's what they're anticipating. The other option is to resist. And maybe end up in Montana, you know, growing your own food."

    It is interesting, but this is what I already know about Product Placements (I actually had a study about it). The approach was funny and satirical, but it is not so much of the Greatest Documentary to Ever tell me about my profession.

    Kinda interesting, but like most Spurlock docs, doesn't really tell you anything you didn't already know.

    I learned more about product placement in one scene of Gone Girl than I did this in this whole non-movie.
