It's not being dickish you are just stating facts. Andrew Wakefeild has indirectly caused the deaths of hundreds, if not thousands, of children around the world because of his falsified research.

The film is not rigorously researched and evidenced in its claims. It is riddled with, to paraphrase the wiki page (hey, I need a refresher sometimes.), context-free statistics, emotional appeals, and irrelevant factoids.

Well lets be fair if it was well researched it wouldn't have been made.

Wakefield omits important facts ...

They also always seem to forget to mention the hundreds of papers published since that refute the Wakefield paper.
