The Greater Good.

Docu

Claiming the moral high ground while swimming in ethical contradictions, "The Greater Good" addresses the hot-button issue of childhood immunizations, tackling the topic in a manner that will have only one immediate outcome: Fewer kids will be vaccinated. Whether that actually serves the greater good doesn't seem to be a question of much concern to the filmmakers, but by stirring up the controversy already swirling around the matter, the docu (which opened Oct. 14 for a one-week Los Angeles run) should do its healthiest biz in home formats.
