A Mickey Mouse Response to Michael Moore
This just ain't right.
The film, "Fahrenheit 911," links Mr. Bush and prominent Saudis - including the family of Osama bin Laden - and criticizes Mr. Bush's actions before and after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks...
I have no doubt that someone will pick up the distribution rights. The film is ready to release, and no way it sits on a shelf until some later date (presumably, after the election), particularly with Moore debuting the film at Cannes next month. And even if Disney continues the blockade, I wouldn't be surprised to see Moore himself "release" the movie over the web (through some offshore channel, no doubt).
Bottom line: a Mickey Mouse move by Disney, IMO.
