I saw this movie a couple of years ago and I must say that I really liked it. The analogy with the real world is so striking! I recommended it to several people (with different backgrounds) and the ones I consider enlightened shared my opinion. Some of the others did not like the movie at all so I guess you got to have the right set of mind.
To give you a reference, I also liked The matrix, The yes men, Zeitgeist..

Fox people are mega-idiots for not releasing this gem nationwide. I guess when you`re satirizing big business, you should go with an indie distributor... not one who`d rather drop you than letting down his buddies Starbucks, Carl`s Jr., Fuddruckers, or Gatorade.
Brilliant in it`s simplicity, brilliant premise, brilliant in it`s thousands of details - supported by a fantastic cast.
