What's in a name? In this documentary, director Jim Killeen discovers that a number of people in the world share his name. Using the internet search engine Google, Killeen tracks down six men also named Jim Killeen, from a priest in Ireland to a swinger in Colorado. Though the documentary shows the differences in men with this name, it also demonstrates the similarities between people's lives despite disparate backgrounds.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Uma idéia que até poderia render algo interessante, mas que é sabotada pela abordagem falha, pelo egocentrismo do diretor, pela montagem amadora e que ainda encontra tempo para atacar a Psiquiatria seguindo a doutrina estúpida da Cientologia."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"...too much of the film is filled with material better served for the behind-the-scenes section on the electronic press kit."
‑ Mark Pfeiffer, Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema
"The shortfall in Google Me is the inordinate amountof time the LA-based Jim spends on his own life's story."
‑ Robin Clifford, Reeling Reviews
"Never really comes to any surprising connections. But the film is a pleasant way to meet seven people whose names all happen to be Jim Killeen."
‑ Mark R. Leeper,
"In search of the inner Jim"
‑ S. James Wegg, JWR
"...a fun yet entirely inconsequential documentary..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Killeen puts a face on a concept that has likely occurred to most of us"
‑ John A. Nesbit, Old School Reviews
"Jim Killeen found himself on the Internet."
‑ Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope
"a quaint diversion that desperately tries to answer big questions, but ultimately has little more depth than spending 10 spare minutes on YouTube"
‑ Christopher Null,
"... you can't help but think, 'Hey, why didn't *I* think of that?' just before you also tell yourself, 'Would I even have the guts to try?'"
‑ Kevin A. Ranson,
"...often almost as much fun as the Jim Killeens of the world appear to be having making it."
‑ Laura Clifford, Reeling Reviews
