"LOVE IT/LEAVE IT is a raucous treatment of patriotic color, football, nudity and parades set to a refrain of 'Love It' and coalescing into Tom Palazzolo's nightmare rendition of America the Awful. It sounds the theme song of this program [at the Whitney] and gives you a pretty good start on deciding to 'Leave It.'" -- Archer Winston, New York Post "[A]s filmmaking it's riveting." -- The New York Times "A part of it looks like the kind of out-of-control patriotism ... of Desert Storm." -- J. Hoberman
