"This is such a bracing and optimistic and doggedly idealistic film, simplistic in the sense that it believes that things like feminism are simply right." -Guardian

"The most salient point Moore makes in Where to Invade Next is that so many of the ideas explored in the doc are American, historically speaking." -rogerebert.com

Filmmaker Michael Moore visits various countries to examine how Europeans view work, education, health care, sex, equality, and other issues. From cafeteria food to sex ed, Moore looks at the benefits of schooling in France, Finland and Slovenia. In Italy, he marvels at how workers enjoy reasonable hours and generous vacation time. In Portugal, Moore notes the effects of the decriminalization of drugs. Through his travels, we discover just how different America is from the rest of the world.
