1. Going Great White is a funny mockumentary filmed in Oregon, WI by two Oregonians, Frank G Caruso and Frank X Sommers. Done in the same style as "Best in Show," "Going Great White" pokes fun at the world of Multi-Level Marketing with an over-the-top depiction of a fictional company, ONITRAC. Throughout the film, a camera crew follows around a number of different characters who try to push ONITRAC on family, friends, and co-workers in hopes of winning an award at the upcoming national convention. There are many laughs to be had with this one. However, if you're a multi-level marketer yourself, you might not find it funny.
