The "two cultures" effect that we're seeing with the responses to Sizzle continues: Now the famed industry rag Varietyloves the film that has many scientists scratching their heads (or worse). From the Variety reviewer:

The film emerges, more skillfully than "Flock of Dodos," as an exceedingly clever vehicle for making science engaging to a general audience, and also presents climate-change science in a more complex light than the overtly partisan "An Inconvenient Truth."

Does the film perpetrate stereotypes? Variety:

Silpa and Clark push the flaming-queen stereotype right to the edge without sinking the comedy.
