As a lecture it's very effective. As a movie it's pretty horrible.
I don't know where these acoustic-guitar-y biographical segments of Al Gore walking on his salt-of-the-earth farmland or talking about peaceful summertime rivers came from, but all that stuff made me want to eat something so I could throw it up. And they just come out of nowhere... It's like... you know what it's like? It's like you're watching a guy give a powerpoint presentation on C-SPAN that has commercials for Al Gore's biography. Glabl warming this, global warming that, my mom died of cancer. The ice is melting, the oceans are getting warmer, I loved working on the farm. Drive a hybrid car, use those expensive lightbulbs, and I didn't win the presidential race.
Gah. it bugged me to the point where I didn't even care about what he was talking about. I just wanted the soft music and random shots of Gore working on his laptop to end.
