About the Movie
What’s on your plate? Filmmaker and concerned father Jeremy Seifert is in search of answers about genetically modified organisms (GMOs) and how they affect our children, the health of our planet, and our freedom of choice. His journey takes him to Haiti, Paris, Norway, and even the front door of agri-giant Monsanto, the largest provider of GMOs in the United States, as he poses perhaps the ultimate question about what we eat: is it still possible to reject our current food system, or have we already lost something we can’t get back? GMO OMG is a timely, informative, entertaining, and ultimately insightful documentary about the question that’s a growing concern to citizens around the world: who controls the future of our food?

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: [Provides] a gentle, flyover alert to obliviously chowing-down citizens ... without hectoring and with no small amount of charm.
Fresh: Combines the folksy charm of Taggart Siegel's The Real Dirt on Farmer John and the frightening facts of Robert Kenner's Food, Inc.
Rotten: Insufferably certain of its own charm and a lot less interested in educating viewers than it purports to be, Jeremy Seifert's GMO OMG offers an introduction to genetically modified food that is only slightly more thoughtful than the movie's title.
Rotten: This is a David-vs.-Goliath movie, but David's aim is so spotty that Goliath has nothing to fear.
A Look at GMO from a Father
The problem with this movie is the clear agenda. Everything we eat has been modified all that changed is our ability to have greater control over the genotype to create the desired phenotype. Before we had to mix organisms with the desired phenotypes and hope the offspring would deliver the desired results. This is slow and significantly less effective.
A horrible anti science movie. GMO hatred by the left is the same as global warming denying by the right.
GMO Oh so wrong
We rented this film knowing it would be slanted but unfortunately it fell far from the mark in explaining genetically modified organisms, their reason for existing as well as the enormous amount of suffering they’ve minimized world wide by reducing starvation. His points are emotional and provide little to no factual information. If you want an emotionally driven soapbox documentary that you can discuss in your favourite coffee house then this is the film for you. If you need something with more substance about GMOs then keep looking.
Watch this movie and save your life and planet!
Please watch this movie, and make up your own mind. It's essential to get the truth about gmo's, which are destroying people's health, killing bees . . . and making biotech corporations and politicians filthy rich. Yes some farmers say they need gmo's, but at what price to everyone's health? Bottom line: gmo's contain poison that kills bugs, bees, and people. Thank God for this movie!
