Movie Info

Global warming has been the most significant environmental issue to come to the public's attention in the final quarter of the Twentieth Century. But while most people know what global warming is, convincing folks that it's a real and present danger has been a difficult task, especially since a number of Republican political leaders and leading figures in multi-national business have used their power and influence to question the facts behind the issue, or dismiss scientific evidence as tree-hugging hysteria. The grassroots efforts of environmental activists to spread the word about the very real dangers of this looming crisis are chronicled in Everything's Cool, a documentary which focuses on a wide variety of concerned people working to shift public opinion, from author Ross Gelbspan and former Vice President Al Gore to ordinary citizens who use chat at work and in elevators to spread the message. The film also looks at how activists used the big-budget sci-fi film The Day After Tomorrow as a springboard to push global warming into public consciousness. Everything's Cool was screened in competition at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival.

  • While the film offers plenty of food for thought along the way, it's hard not to wish that it contained more nutritional value.

  • No one who has read more than a couple of articles about global warming will learn anything from this movie, but there is some amusement value.

  • Gratingly condescending toward its audience and sorely lacking in any substantive information about the problem or the solution.

  • Gold and Helfand paint a considerably livelier cinematic tableau than An Inconvenient Truth as they interview a diverse cross-section of artists, scientists and average Joes who are devoting themselves to the betterment of the environment.

  • addresses the problem of making an American public aware of climactic catastrophe as if it were 1999 and Clinton still the president.

  • Everything's Cool understands that a pretty face like Jake Gyllenhaal's in The Day After Tomorrow is sometimes necessary to sell an important story.
