Celsius 41.11 was an attempt by conservative pundits and politicians to respond to the runaway box-office success of Michael Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11. The film features interviews with such notable public figures as Fred Barnes, Michael Medved, Fred Thompson, and Charles Krauthammer and offers a dissection of the democratic party's 2004 nominee for president, John Kerry.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"As a return volley to Moore's cinema, Celsius shares Moore's blatant agit-prop but none of his humor or entertainment sense."
‑ Robert Koehler, Variety
"There's really nothing more here than you can find watching dreadful political advertisements and dreadful political talk shows."
‑ Philip Kennicott, Washington Post
"Now that we've had the four more years of Bush that the movie was designed to encourage ... Celsius 41.11 seems pretty sad and naive."
‑ Rob Gonsalves, eFilmCritic.com
"A bland documentary if ever there was one."
‑ Linda Cook, Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)
"Celsius 41.11 is so bad it's almost like performance art, or those cheap records from the '60s, where the Chipmunks sing the Beatles' greatest hits."
‑ Stephanie Zacharek, Salon.com
"It's not that Moore's film doesn't deserve an argument. But it does deserve a more thoughtful one."
‑ Tom Keogh, Seattle Times
"A grim slice of ultra-conservative agitprop...probably the worst example of the activist documentary to appear this election season."
‑ Frank Swietek, One Guy's Opinion
"It's about as emotional as a PowerPoint presentation."
‑ Duane Dudek, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
"The even faintly informed will see only a cut-rate vision of flabby white men defending their own bloodthirsty opportunism."
‑ Michael Atkinson, Village Voice
"There is little new in this mostly dry and humorless defense of President Bush, which adds a little heat but not a whole lot of light to the political debate."
‑ Lou Lumenick, New York Post
"Any way you look at it, November 2 simply cannot arrive fast enough."
‑ Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle
"If Knoblock expected his film to change minds, as Fahrenheit 9-11 seems to have done, he really should have added more humor"
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, Los Angeles CityBeat
