Interesting as information, bad as a movie
Everything's Cool presented interesting facts about the politics behind the global warming - scientists who have been silenced by the US government, climate change reports edited to look much less threatening, whistle-blowers who resigned from government position.
As a movie, Everything's Cool fails in numerous aspects. One that particularly annoyed me was the completely off-topic focus on Dr. Heidi Cullen's adaptation to the TV show world - who cares about that? The plot left an overall impression of a scatterbrained director, distractingly jumping from one issue (a global warming campaign truck) to another (Dr. Cullen's training for the camera) to another (a bunch of Utah guys making biodiesel in a garage) to another (whistle-blowers), without much transition.
An another reviewer mentioned, the movie was unnecessarily long. Dr Cullen aside, biodiesel is just one of the plethora of solutions for reducing emission, hence somewhat beyond the scope of the movie.
