Interesting Movie -M1Finance.com
A few segments were eye-opening and almost life-changing, but some parts were filled with fairly boring and useless information (the sumo wrestler segment).
it's nice to put a face and voice to this beautiful book.
Interesting ideas are presented but not enough time is spent on each idea for it to be a fully fleshed out idea. In addition, it kept referencing the data but in most of the shorts, the data wasn't presented just the conclusions. However, there was an interesting correlation between lowered crime rates and abortion. I'm sure the book provides more detail and insight.
Disappointed in "Freakonomics" as it didn't demonstrate useful knowledge for a viewer to take and apply to real-life scenarios and instead discusses a few theories that lack the statistical explanation to back its claims.
Better stick only to the book.
It was inevitable to expect any thing but a lack of consistency in a documentary made by so many different names with significantly different styles. And as such, some segments are good, some are not so much. Freakonomics is an enjoyable ride and that's about it.
Seperate documentary segments made into a movie. Some were interesting, some were boring. The teenage boy in the last segment was so dumb I wanted to shake him.
I thought that it was a really interesting movie tackling patterns that most people overlook.
Could have been so much better, but somehow the magic of the book was lost in this clunky filmumentary. Still interesting for geeks but less so for the average Joe.
