Moore Alert - I can only imagine what the be on the lookout for this guy looks like. "Uh, watch out for a portly, unshaven slob in a baseball cap. May be carrying a camera and sporting a massive ego. Should be considered stupid and dangerous to the truth." Michael Moore is making a movie about the health care industry in the United States. He shouldn't bother. Everyone already knows exactly what Moore is going to say, and how he's going to say it. He's going to whine about the cost of prescription drugs, show how much drug makers spend on marketing (he may have a valid point here, by the way) and praise Canada for their health care system while ignoring the problems inherent in socialized medicine. Also ignored will be how much it costs to develop and test new drugs and the millions of lives that have been improved or saved.
All of this will be set to trendy music and some neat camera work.
There, "Sicko" in a nutshell. You heard it here first.
