Pom Wonderful Presents: The Greatest Movie Ever Sold

"The Greatest Movie Ever Sold" is not the greatest movie ever told. The idea: Great. But something happened on the way to the theater.
Morgan Spurlock, the guy who gave us "Super Size Me," a first person account of the gross-out danger of eating fast food, had another excellent idea. He'd make a movie about product placement and fund it completely with $ he got from placing products in his film.
Could be incredible. But it wasn't.
Too much of the movie centered around his search for companies who'd buy into his idea, which means lots of boring sitting around conference tables, chuckling about how funny this is.
Well, the Movie Slut says show me, don't tell me. She wanted to see footage of products in movies that were blatant examples of product placement. Like this.
