We gave it an A-

With his bullying belly and his gimmie caps, Michael Moore is pushy and self-aggrandizing, but he’s also a witty and savagely intelligent provocateur. In his follow-up to Roger & Me, The Big One, his agenda — and it succeeds marvelously — is to embarrass corporations by revealing their bureaucratic-automaton style as the inevitable extension of a philosophy that squeezes workers even when profits are at a record high.
