Where To Invade Next
)   120 minutes

In Michael Moore’s provocative and hilarious documentary, he'll stop at nothing to figure out how to actually make America great again. Where to Invade Next is an expansive, rib-tickling and subversive comedy in which Moore, playing the role of “invader,” visits a host of nations to learn how the U.S. could improve its own prospects. The creator of Bowling for Columbine and Fahrenheit 9/11 is back with this hilarious and eye-opening call to arms. Turns out the solutions to America’s most entrenched problems already exist in the world—they’re just waiting to be co-opted.

MPAA Rating: R for language, some violent images, drug use and brief graphic nudity
