    Joe Neumaier New York Daily News

    Broomfield's point that Palin followers threaten her enemies, though, is worthy of a different documentary - perhaps one about American fanaticism. show more

    The Hollywood Reporter

    Fleshing out now-familiar tales of misconduct and bad judgment, Palin investigation is entertaining but holds no dramatic discoveries. show more

    Ella Taylor NPR

    Never one to take a back seat in his movies, Broomfield projects a shambling, Columbo-style bonhomie that gains him access to people who should be very afraid of letting him cross their threshold. show more

    Rex Reed New York Observer

    In case you think Sarah Palin-You Betcha! is a hit job on an easy subject, see the movie and learn something. It's terrifying, but in all fairness, no disgrace, no rumor of extramarital affairs in office, no broadside is explored unless it can be substantiated. show more

    With Sarah Palin: You Betcha! director Nick Broomfield manages to screw it up. show more

    Time Out New York

    Palin may have lost her taste for the responsibilities of office, but thanks to Broomfield's barely veiled condescension, this slightly prejudiced portrait could win her more supporters than it loses. show more

    Owen Gleiberman Entertainment Weekly

    Though a great deal of this material (e.g., Troopergate) seems like old news, Broomfield is so dogged that he makes 
 a case, in a deeper way than we've seen, that there's a 
 terrifying remorselessness to Palin's feuding nature. show more
