In a New Yorker review, David Denby gives us this:

In J. J. Abrams’s “Super 8”—one of the twenty or so digital spectacles, including “X-Men: First Class” and “Green Lantern,” that will storm the malls this summer—a bunch of kids in a small Ohio town, in 1979, are making a zombie movie. [....] We can’t help noticing that the kids aren’t making a documentary about the steel plant in their town, a fading industrial site where Joe’s mother recently died in an accident.

Not only do we not notice that they're not making that documentary (very naughty writing), but I'd suggest that anyone actually thinking that while watching Super 8 should perhaps not be in the business of reviewing films.
