Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Mo Rocca's faux-disingenuous tone and nonstop jocularity dominate the docu to quickly grating effect."

‑ Nick Schager, Village Voice

‑ Brent Simon, Shared Darkness
"A timely look at an important issue that's getting more hotly contested every month."
‑ John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter
