Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Too often, it is no more than a set of flashcards, with no feel for the images other than to note that it's Andorra or Burkina Faso or Tuvalu we're admiring. – Daniel M. Gold, New York Times, Jun 1, 2012

Rotten: One day on Earth proves too little and too much for One Day on Earth. – Robert Koehler, Variety, Aug 27, 2012

Rotten: The overall impression is as fleeting as much of the imagery that flashes across the screen. – Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times, Jun 21, 2012

Fresh: The film's 104 minutes ambitiously packs in a huge amount of evocative imagery that well conveys the diversity of life on the planet. – Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter, Jun 8, 2012

Just Brilliant!!!

It let you take a small view of the world from your home's couch; facts that will leave you astonished and histories that will leave you amazed. Highly recommended!!

It's ok

Great effort, but extremely depressing. Also repetitive. Had to fast forward.

Important To Watch With Kids

My kids are 9 and 12, and we live in the United States. We often tell them they don't know how good they have it.... as we ask them to turn off their iphones for the day, as Sunday is no electronics day for us.

This movie sooo puts life on planet earth into a broader perspective... it's great for all ages, and its very humbling. I purchased this movie, because we plan to watch it at least once a month to remind ourselves what is going on in the world and too stay humbled and grateful, for we have so much to be grateful for.

Thank you so much for creating this movie. It's a must watch for all.
