Sicko is a 2007 documentary film by American filmmaker Michael Moore. The film investigates health care in the United States, focusing on its health insurance and the pharmaceutical industry. The movie compares the for-profit, non-universal U.S. system with the non-profit universal health care systems of Canada, the United Kingdom, France and Cuba.Sicko was made on a budget of approximately $9 million, and grossed $24.5 million theatrically in the United States. This box office take exceeded the official expectation of The Weinstein Company, which had hoped for a gross in line with Bowling for Columbine's $21.5 million US box office gross.

    And when I say ‘best’ I mean the ‘stupidest, most distracting and vaguely pointless bits’. And when I say ‘you’ I mean ‘anyone who stumbles across this article, or receives our daily newsletter or follows us on Twitter’. That bit about ‘the internet’ is right though. Definitely everything featured here is on the internet in some form.
