Consensus: The Greatest Movie Ever Sold plays smartly to Spurlock's strengths, and the result is a breezy, albeit not particularly enlightening documentary.

Time Out

A robust and amusing reminder of how Hollywood's tills are topped up by third-party brands and what they get - and we lose - in return.

Globe and Mail

The problem is that the film, despite an attempt to examine the intellectual pollution of pervasive marketing, can't help coming off as one big smirk.

Not sure Spurlock is the guy who should be making this case, but hey, I don't see anybody else doing it.

Few could pull off this fan dance as well as Spurlock, who manages to be both the laughing and crying clowns at the same time.

Forget about "greatest." But this could be the most self-referential movie ever: literally a 90-minute narrative about its own creation.

FILMINK (Australia)

And like Spurlock's other works, among all the laughs and gimmicks, he occasionally scores a moment that floors you.

Very interesting if you're interested in the subject, but it's more "calls attention to the issue" than "explores it in depth"

Another exhibition for Morgan Spurlock to shock and awe, this film does an impressive job of showing the groveling of getting sponsors for big budget… More
