Delves into issues such as the role sweatshops play in America's mass consumerism and Big-Box Culture.

It's about how America as a whole needs to be less of an over enthusiastic consumer and going back to being true to the holiday season. Basically not falling prey to buy into buying everything. The disc however wouldn't play all the way through. But honestly, you'd have to be a moron to live above your economical means!

Billy and his Choir came here to Seattle promoting this movie. I regret now not going to that. After watching this I realized how much I have in common with the Rev. A perfect film to watch with the family during Thanksgiving. For Black Friday we all should make something with our hands instead of buying slave-labor products from SouthEast Asia.

Hilarious, a true American original. A fascinating commentary on consumerism as a way of life, providing a fresh breath of air on something that is so ingrained in the shopping psyche. And it's pretty entertaining, to boot.
