""Dave Gorman's Googlewhack Adventure" was released in 2003. Here we are 6 years later, and someone takes the exact same idea and repeats it. I know Hollywood doesn't believe in originality, but do we have to have indie documentary remakes?"
Worth watching! A Meaningful Venture in 96 minutes.

"Think of the possibilities. If you were to track down people who share your name, people from all over the globe, and really get to know them...what would you learn? What would you experience?
This is not just a documentary. It is a biographical, educational, entertaining experience and a little bit wonderful and amazing.
Jim Killeen (you know, the one who made the movie) is not a professional film producer. He is an "ordinary" guy who set out to make a film. As it turns out, he produces an extraordinary cross section of interesting lives from around the world and packages it in a way that allows you to experience it as if you were in the room. It is exactly what the film industry needs...fresh, exciting ideas from minds like that of Jim Killeen.
This was quite a project. I'm glad I saw it.
If you're sitting here wondering if you should watch it...stop wondering, rent the movie, grab a snack and a drink and enjoy the show.
You made a pretty cool film, Jim!

"It's real, interesting, and fun to watch. Reminds you of the good in people and brings you to reality while getting you to think about the purpose of life. It takes you to several different places around the world to reflect on others' perspectives and lives. Very satisfying and as many critics seem to say, "a breath of fresh air.""
Superb fun movie - watch it for sure

"Google me is the real fun movie, I loved it. When I saw it I was surprised to see the idea. I have googled my name tons of times and i am sure we all do it all the time. But only this director(Jim) can imagine and work on this idea and make a documentary out of it.
I would give it ***** for wonderful idea, ***** for superb story and 100% satisfaction.
