Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Greenwald has fashioned a fine attack dog, and he's sicced it on a deserving subject."
‑ Ty Burr, Boston Globe
"While Outfoxed surely will appeal more to liberals than to conservatives, its value to its self-selected audience lies not in upending anyone's expectations, but in taking the uninitiated down the Fox News rabbit hole."
‑ Bruce Newman, San Jose Mercury News
"I'm Shocked, SHOCKED to discover Fox News is conservative!!!"
‑ Eric Lurio, Greenwich Village Gazette
"The most scrupulous, most focused, most thorough, and arguably most important of 2004's wave of activist documentaries."
‑ Rob Blackwelder, SPLICEDWire
"Fox News eventually comes off as a circle of buffoons yapping catch phrases. The movie hammers its points and, like a Bush campaign stop, there's no room for dissent."
‑ John Wirt, Advocate (Baton Rouge, LA)
"Taken for what it is, Outfoxed is still worth watching, especially for the politically active."
‑ Bill Muller, Arizona Republic
"Those with negative opinions of Fox News probably never watch it and may find the ample clips on display here eye-opening."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"[A] home-run smackdown of the Australian mogul who dominates the American media scene..."
‑ MaryAnn Johanson, Flick Filosopher
"Not about anything except the lead-balloon revelation that Fox feeds rage and fuels disinformation with questionable journalistic tactics."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"Powerful stuff, and deserves to be seen -- by both sides of the political spectrum."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Makes a crucial argument that has less to do with conservatives and liberals than with the coarsening of political discourse and the sinking standards of journalism and news -- subjects that go far beyond any particular news operation."
‑ Chris Vognar, Dallas Morning News
"For independent thinkers and those who think of journalism as a profession of accuracy, fairness and ethics, there's more than enough to chew on."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"This basic dichotomy of honest, urgent intentions and desultory, cheapskate expression marks OutFoxed from a fairly early moment and never really changes."
‑ Nick Davis, Nick's Flick Picks
"This is a big story, but there's not much coverage of it, except in this movie."
‑ Robert Roten, Laramie Movie Scope
"The kind of broader analysis that makes "Outfoxed" worthwhile viewing even for those who don't have Air America as one of their preset stations."
‑ Rob Thomas, Capital Times (Madison, WI)
