Filmmaker Michael Moore's quest for an interview with General Motors chairman Roger Smith frames this look at the economic devastation caused by the closing of GM plants in Flint, Michigan. The result is a highly personal, surprisingly comic document of one town's decline and the subsequent corporate and government inaction.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The film itself remains a hard kick in the head-a funny, angry inquiry into what the hell happened to the American dream."
‑ Noel Murray, The Dissolve
‑ Alex Sandell, Juicy Cerebellum
"brilliant and subversive"
‑ MaryAnn Johanson, Flick Filosopher
"While not as good as Bowling for Columbine, Roger and Me does show delirious hints of what was yet to come."
‑ Ryan Cracknell, Movie Views
"An inventive, darkly comic, and prophetic documentary about corporate America and unemployement."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"Michael Moore's film is intelligent, funny, in-depth, and touching, all executed with a gripping hands-on approach to the material that helps engage the audience more than you're standard talking heads documentary."
‑ Jeff Beck,
"Entertaining but overpraised first effort from Moore"
‑ Jon Niccum, Lawrence Journal-World
"So many classic bits."
‑ Mark Robison, Reno Gazette-Journal
"Nem todos os argumentos de Michael Moore são válidos como ele gostaria, mas o filme cumpre seu objetivo ao analisar a decadência de uma cidade em função da ganância de uma grande empresa."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"Despite some tempering with the chronological sequence of events, this is a scathingly biting satire of Reagonomics that captures the zeitgeist of the late 1980s much more poignantly than most Hollywood movies."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"the first of Moore's already legendary documentaries."
‑ Steve Crum, Kansas City Kansan
"Regardless of Moore's conceitedness and simple-mindedness, he still makes a good movie, and without inventing so many facts as he did with Bowling for Columbine."
‑ Christopher Null,
"demonstrates that this genré can be as hilarious as any comedy on the market and provide some sharp political muckraking to boot."
‑ John A. Nesbit, Old School Reviews
