At a time in history when the FBI has deemed animal-rights activists the number-one domestic terrorist threat to the U.S., filmmaker Curt Johnson sets out to explore exactly how an organization such as PETA can possibly take precedence over the threat posed by Osama bin Laden and al-Qaida in a documentary film that aims to tell the truth about the people who defend the creatures that cannot speak for themselves. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Perhaps the greatest service Johnson does is to turn the event that spurred him to make the film -- the FBI labeling animal rights activists the top domestic terrorist threat -- into a crucial dialogue."
‑ Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
"The result, admittedly, is a bit of a din. But it's certainly interesting."
‑ Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"Johnson's not pushing buttons just for the sake of attention-getting, he's revealing just how hopelessly complicated the issue has grown."
‑ David Cornelius,
"It isn't only organization that the mildly anarchic Your Mommy Kills Animals sorely lacks, it's also a sufficient number of sources."
‑ Chad Greene, Boxoffice Magazine
"It's impossible to watch without having your point of view challenged - no matter which side of the issue you're on."
‑ Barrett Hooper, National Post
"That one can't quite decide if these charming men are heroes or villains is a mark of Johnson's calm, even approach to an issue seemingly fueled by emotions run amok."
‑ Chuck Wilson, L.A. Weekly
"A miraculously evenhanded treatment of a snarlingly divisive debate."
‑ John Anderson, Variety
"Worth seeing by anyone who cares about animals."
‑ Eric Monder, Film Journal International
"Hard to beat that title, ain't it?"
‑ Jason Anderson, eye WEEKLY
"Your Mommy Kills Animals is an eye-opener, raising tough questions about whether the movement deserves such intense scrutiny and punishment by the government."
‑ Chris Knight, National Post
"It lets you off dizzy and confused, whereas the best documentaries leave you feeling that you've come to a settled perspective on a subject."
‑ Stephen Cole, Globe and Mail
"Your Mommy Kills Animals lays things out with historical perspective, tracing the roots of both the animal welfare movement and animals rights activism to England."
‑ Peter Martin, Cinematical
"Powerful, angry and bizarre documentary."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Can't commit to an overview of the movement by looking at three groups or stick with the trial of the "SHAC 7." So an intriguing but too short tour of animal-rights issues is interrupted by a flatly chronicled court case."
‑ Brian Gibson, Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)
"Interesting and sometimes dizzyingly freewheeling."
‑ Jim Slotek, Jam! Movies
