In gewisser Hinsicht schon lustig, aber wie viele deutsche 18-25 Jährige würden den Irak auf einer Weltkarte finden? In anbetracht dessen was sich heutzutage Erdkundeunterricht nennt, habe ich da meine Zweifel...

Ich weiß nicht, ob es lustig ist, wenn viele Deutsche Spaß daran haben, daß Amerikaner angeblich dumm und ungebildet sind. Es wirft ja das Licht zurück auf denjenigen, der das glaubt. Und wie sicher leben wir mit so viel Dummheit in Deutschland? Ich fand schon das Sommertheater nicht mehr lustig, als Schröder nicht nach Italien fuhr. Witze machen und lachen in positiver Weise, wenn es das wäre, aber hinter diesem Lachen steckt so viel Häme, Spott, Verachtung, da ist gar kein Bezug mehr zu Fröhlichkeit. Die Menschen werden dadurch gegeneinander aufgehetzt. Was an Schimpfe über Italien (und umgekehrt) zu lesen war, fand ich erschreckend. Und die jetzige Gleichsetzung von Bush, Blair, Sharom und Saddam als Kriegsverbrecher zeigt die Geisteshaltung dieser Menschen. Die Medien tragen hier große Verantwortung. Diese Geisteshaltung haben offenbar selbst viele Journalisten. Das ist das Gefährliche.

What's to say about micheal moore! He's doing more damage to german-american relations than a 50 kilo-ton nuclear bomb could ever hope to achieve! And he's not even an elected offical.

I would have never had guessed a film director could possibly add more mind-boggling myth to reality, than he could ever hope to achieve in his film! Thanks to micheal moore my german grand parent is spinning in her grave!

I'm not so sure if people from a country where 88% don't know what a Scud missile is should be making fun of other peoples' knowledge.

While i refuse to be baited. My comments were not an attack on germany.

I don't put my trust in public polls. And honestly have never heard any town in america being concerned to the point of making scuds missles the prority topic of the century.

It's fine and dandy if you think my country is full of idiots, however i'm willing to give you the benefit of the doubt!

I keep hearing about how Michael Moore is so funny. I don't get it. I'm still waiting to hear him say something remotely funny.

If I want funny, I'd rather spend 8 dollars on a Mike Myers movie than watch Bowling for Columbine.

By the way, I saw Bowling for Columbine. Please, someone tell me where I can find one funny scene in that movie.

Ambushing an old man, like Charlton Heston, who's suffering from Alzheimer's, was that supposed to be funny?

Otto is funny. Beppo Brehm was funny, but Michael Moore?

One scene I did find funny in BFC was the series of images leading up to Bush (or Ashcroft) announcing a "blanket alert". This was well done, I thought.

Please pardon me, seeing that i haven't seen BFC.
But what was bush or (ashcroft) doing in BFC.
Seeing that bush didn't get into office until janurary of 2000'. Maybe i am just nitpicking but micheal moore won an academy award For the documenterary BFC. Columbine massacre occured in april of 99'.

While i'm not going to go into the politics of left or right, it is not relevant to the real issue. Which is that the massacre had taken place at all. Why would any sensible person use that movie to prove a political point.

The guy has a fundamental right to voice his opinions in this country. He can protest against the government all he wants. I don't deny him of that. But the thing that has got me upset, is that in using a community's suffering, just so he can twist it into his version of reality to prove a political point is not very deserving of an oscar in my book.

Tragedies, dramas, and human interests are a normal part of life, and the morals & ethics some use to further their own ends is disgusting. In essence, if you don't like it then turn it off. That is one reason why i don't bother to watch t.v. or go to the movies these days. Hollywood is way too politicized these days to be entertaining.

And hollywood celebrities are not my spokespersons. That is, unless of course, they are qualified or the people are just fed up with the way things are going and are elected to national office in a general election!

So here's the scene I thought was funny (this is all voice over, with images from local news from somewhere:)

Remember all the Y2K scares...or the Africanized bees?
Remember when someone hid a razor in an apple for Halloween?
Kids were no longer to go trick or treating in a stranger’s home.
A fox darted out of the woods and attacked his riding mower.
A warning about a popular weight-loss supplement; what you don’t know may kill you.
An escalator can mangle you or a loved one.
Keep a low profile.
One in five Americans suffers some sort of mental disorder; The Surgeon General pleads with people to seek help now.

and the last scene is Ashcroft saying

The Justice Department did issue a blanket alert... it was in recognition of a general threat we received.
Given the attitude of the evildoers, it may not be.

Well, that's funny. For me at least. Reminds me of the SNL episode where Seinfeld announces: "The president was assassinated today. The president of what? --- we'll tell you at the end of the hour."

If that means what Moore thinks it means I don't know.
