NEW YORK VIEW
Presenter Morgan (Super Size Me) Spurlock's name is all over the promotion of this film, so you may be shocked to discover it's not a hard-hitting documentary, but rather a genial, improvised mockumentary about the lives of a trio of young teachers. Lovingly observed, charmingly acted, and quite entertaining—though its occasional, and thankfully quite few, stabs at poignancy and social resonance fall a bit flat.
