This DVD exaggerated a lot. Around the whole world people would prefer to stay young, healthy and good looking. This does not just happen in USA. It is time for people to be realistic and practical.

A very smart documentary. The filmmaker himself was so genuine and I found his message rang true. I would definitely recommend this film to all women!
