I would have probably given this movie 4 stars if it weren't for the blatant asinine bias of critics. I AM NOT A REPUBLICAN. Like it or not, this movie is backed by documented FACTS. And here are a few more: 1) moviefone gives this 2 stars (11 critics) and 624 viewers give it 4 stars 2)Critics res..

This is one of the worst (supposed) documentaries I ahve ever seen. How does pulling bits and pieces out of context fromObama's book \"Dreams From My Father\" make it compelling and truthful?

The New York Times
Mr. D'Souza stumbles when interviewing George Obama, the president's half-brother, an activist who voluntarily lives amid squalor in Nairobi, Kenya. "Obama has not done anything to help you," Mr. D'Souza says. "He's taking care of me; I'm part of the world," George Obama replies. Full Review

One could and perhaps should use scare quotes around "intellectual" when it comes to someone who would crank out a piece of campaign-season partisan hackwork this crude and sloppy. (By this standard, James Carville looks like Immanuel Kant.) Full Review

He (D'Souza) reaffirms many of the complaints against Obama, and when he sticks to the facts is much more persuasive. Full Review

While it's highly unlikely that anyone predisposed to championing Obama would be won over by the sound and fury here, there's no gainsaying the value of "2016" as a sort of Cliffs Notes precis of the conservative case against the re-election of our current U.S. president. Full Review

Well, fair's fair. George W. Bush got Michael Moore and "Fahrenheit 9/11." Now Barack Obama gets Dinesh D'Souza and 2016: Obama's America. Both films are wildly partisan attack documentaries made by wildly partisan and generally annoying polemicists (D'Souza is more personable, actually, than Moore). Full Review
