I think Hollywood (or the entire film community for that matter) takes it upon itself to build movies like this up in order to make their collective views known to the rest of the world. District 9 wasn't any better at hiding its political motives. They know there are people who choose not to formulate their own views and prey upon them.
I wasn't really bothered by District 9. There's a social/political connection to be had in the backdrop of Apartheid, but didn't feel like it was pressing an agenda. I wasn't disgusted by Avatar's message, also, but being in the IMAX experience made me overlook that.

Hollywood Bowl is concert movie and And Now for Something Completely Different is a sketch movie but they were both theatre releases and Hollywood Bowl is as much of a classic as the others. If you are a Python fan you've got to watch the 2 part documentary Python:Almost the Truth (the lawyer's cut). It's a must see.
Ah yes, forgot about And Now For Something Completely Different as that's in my library as well. The Hollywood Bowl one, I've also seen, but haven't seen the documentary. I'll need to check up on that soon.
