The Hollywood Reporter - 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.
Boxoffice Magazine - Steve Ramos
Spurlock is at his trouble making best throughout the film, especially when he persuades longtime consumer advocate and former presidential candidate Ralph Nader by offering him a free pair of Merrell shoes.
Arizona Republic - Bill Goodykoontz
There are lots of laughs - a commercial Spurlock makes for Mane 'n Tail shampoo is hilarious.
New York Magazine (Vulture) - David Edelstein
It's surprising that The Greatest Movie Ever Sold plays so entertainingly, given that Spurlock's quest is essentially beside the point.
Variety - Justin Chang
A consistently amusing and not entirely vacuous stunt.
