Plot Summary

If you want to stay healthy in America, don't get sick. Following on the heels of his Palme d'Or Fahrenheit 9/11 and his Oscar winning film Bowling for Columbine, acclaimed filmmaker Michael Moore's new documentary sets out to investigate the American healthcare system. Sticking to his tried-and-true one-man approach, Moore sheds light on the complicated medical affairs of individuals and local communities.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: If other countries can provide their people with universal health care, why can't we? If we can't, who are we? – Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly, Sep 7, 2011

Fresh: Though the focus occasionally strays, the film emerges as a fascinating exploration and powerful indictment of a pressing national problem. This is Moore's biggest, best and most impassioned work. – Claudia Puig, USA Today, Dec 4, 2007

Fresh: Sicko will scare people, and it probably should. – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, Jul 15, 2007

Fresh: One may quibble with Mr. Moore's anecdotal oversimplifications and his xenophilic fantasies, but he has struck a socio-psychic nerve in the body politic, generating a feeling of outrage that seems to be reverberating in every theater. – Andrew Sarris, New York Observer, Nov 15, 2007

Great Movie, But...

But I think people shouldn't comment on iTunes as to what their political opinions are. People should comment about if they like the MOVIE or not, and shouldn't comment on if they like MICHAEL MOORE or not. If you don't like Moore's movies for a political reason, go take your bullcrap somewhere else.

Sicko is Public Option Debate 101

There are many lines in the sand that have been drawn in the national health care debate. This movie forced our nation to have THE conversation of healthcare for Americans. I invite all to watch Left, Right, Progressive, Centrist, Conservative and Tea Baggers to draw your own conclusions introduced by this film. This film doesn't discuss the tragedy of those who don't have health care but those who DO have health care and what THAT really means. It inspires you to get informed about your coverage and that of your family and to open up your mind to healthcare around the world. Don't take Glen Beck or Keith Obermman's view as gospel...research what's there and make an informed decission. This film inspires you to do just that and to hope for a better healthcare system in the USA.


great documentary, nothing but the truth. the united states of america is terrible, what a shame.
