Freakonomics

First Hit: Rarely interesting, mostly dull and not very engaging.

There are 6 different directors vying to deliver 4 different vignettes, the film's transition segments and the overall film which is based on the book Freakonomics by Steven Levitt and Stephen Dubner.

The first thing that takes away from the seriousness of the film is the demeanor of Levitt and Dubner. There is a casualness and cavalier way about them that actually takes away from any good research or science they might have wanted to share.

The most engaging piece having to do with the corruption of Sumo Wrestling that starts to lead down a trail interest and then fizzles out altogether.

Overall: Lacks the integrity of good science and film making and therefore ends up being something worth missing.
