Why that "Fringe Lefty Radical Hippie Michael Moore"!!!
‘Sicko’ Socks Weekend Box Office

Michael Moore’s latest film, “Sicko,” was a smash hit over the weekend. The documentary about the health care industry was sold out at all its “sneak” screenings in 43 locations around the country including Cleveland, Boston, Atlanta, and Detroit.
In New York, at the AMC Lincoln Square, where “Sicko” began an exclusive run on Friday, Moore’s funny and quite sad look at how Americans might benefit from universal health care sold out its entire run. The total box office at the theater was over $70,000—possibly a record for an exclusive showing.
Now granted, this was limited release. But that is mighty impressive.
