Rolling Stone

By Peter Travers
Spurlock says he's not selling out, he's buying in. I'm buying into Spurlock. As ever, he makes you laugh till it hurts.

USA Today

By Claudia Puig
Spurlock comes off like a new and improved Everyman, familiar but smarter and funnier than the average Joe.

The Hollywood Reporter

By Kirk Honeycutt
So don't tell Spurlock he can't have his cake and eat it too. In Greatest Movie, he gleefully accepts his sponsorships on camera just to show you how wrong this all is.

Morgan Spurlock has come up with a terrific idea-a movie about product placements that depends completely on product placements for its financing.

By Steven Rea
Is Spurlock selling out by pulling off this stunt? Is he biting the hand that feeds him? Is he working both sides against the middle? And does he think JetBlue is the best airline in the world? You bet.

His affable, regular-guy shtick works well here, and he scatters the movie with such gleeful ads for his sponsors' products that, if his documentary work ever dries up, his next career choice is obvious.

Always the smooth showman, Spurlock avoids answering his own question: Is he selling out or buying in?

By Stephanie Zacharek
The subject of Spurlock's movie is Spurlock, and while he may be reasonably affable, and sometimes extremely goofy, it's a stretch to call him controversial.
