Those people have clearly not experienced Scandinavia. If they had, they would know that all the things they mention, except for the fact that you can't buy guns, are available in Scandinavia too. She keeps asking them why they want to live in America, and that is an important question, but she doesn't get a better answer than the typical 'American dream'-one. Why doesn't she ask them questions like: "Why did you choose America over Germany" (or any other Western European- or Scandinavian country for that matter). It's just my opinion, but I think this movie misleads people to believe that the US is a better place to live than the countries (areas) I mentioned above. A shame when you could have made this into a great documentary. :(
