Moore Thanks Opposers For Fahrenheit 9/11's Success

Director MICHAEL MOORE has credited his critics and opponents for giving his controversial documentary FAHRENHEIT 9/11 enough publicity to top America's box office.

Moore's critique of US President GEORGE W BUSH and his policies since the 11 September (01) attacks on America grossed $23.9 million (GBP13.2 million) during its first three days of release.

Elated Moore notes, "After seeing all the numbers, all the exit polls and surveys they do of people coming to see it, it was clear to me that a lot of people in this country want some questions answered and are unhappy about what's going on.

"All (my opponents) did was give more publicity for the film and made more people aware of it.

"The great thing about our fellow Americans, no matter what their political stripe, is they don't like being told that they can't see something as an adult. This just doesn't go over very well."
