I was amazed how the 2 pm showing was packed...my friends, granddaughter and I ended up sitting 5 seats back from the screen. This movie is done exceptionally well and thorough as you journey from Indonesia, Kenya and back to the US in documentary format on President Barack Obama's life and what truly makes this man tick. You come away concerned for the direction our country is headed. My granddaughter from Boston doesn't vote yet but wanted to make sure she saw this movie bring your youth!

Are you American, love your country and believe in Democracy? Then this is a must see movie for you! Actually, this is a must see movie for everyone!
A well balanced movie by someone who truly understands and appreciates what this country has had to offer to the rest of the world.

I Saw it tonight. However before I leFt to see the movie, I read every negative review i could find on this sight including the news articles available within this sight. What occurred to me after seeing the movie is that those who critcized the movie either didnt see it, or support the change from which obama campaigned on. You remember his slogan..."hope and change". I think the movie shed a great deal of light on this.
Now i admitt that i did not vote for obama. However...i dtd have hope for him, I just did not know what change he was talking about. Almost 4 years later i now understand. so i will leave you with a couple of things to think about before you go.
First, The things that seperate us as a people is not race or color. It is morals,values and beliefs..including the belief that the USof A is an "Exceptional country"
Second, if you taxed the rich 100% of their income,you would only pay for a few days of our federal spending...cont

What I expected was a dramatized script of anti Obama rhetoric, what I got was well thought out, well documented and wonderfully organized thought. I didn't feel that Dinesh even had a beef with Obama with his writings, I came away much more informed because it was all laid out in clear transparency. I've felt a less than enthusiastic President of these United States and now I totally understand why. What I don't understand is how anyone would vote for a person who simply doesn't love America; who doesn't see America where all are free to pursue their dream; a man that sees government as the guardian of all. I enjoyed the question and following answer that Dinesh asked: "Has racism in this country kept your son or daughter from pursuing his dream? Has it kept my son or daughter from pursuing their dream?" Of course the answer is "no"!! You must see this movie. Learn more about the man you might have in the most powerful position in the world, I dare you!!!

I went to see 2016 Obama's America because it promised to provide the vetting that the media never provided during his 2007 campaign. The advertisement said, "Love him or hate him, you don't know him." Based on the movie, I would agree, it kept its promise. The most striking thing I learned was that Obama comes from an exceedingly dysfunctional family. Given his background, it is not hard to understand why he seems to hate America and its ideals and why he has spent most of his life running with Leftist revolutionary radicals. If the media had vetted the man as this movie does, I am am certain he would never have been elected, even considering the "zero" he was running against.
One of the best parts of the movie was the analysis of the American electorate and why we voted to elect this strange, unqualified man to be our president. America needs to hear that analysis! It will make you think hard about the power you hold as a voter.
