How to Boil a Frog is a 2010 Canadian eco-comedy documentary film written and directed by Jon Cooksey to show the consequences of too many people using up Earth resources and suggesting five ways that the filmmakers say people can save habitability on the Earth while improving their own lives at the same time.

Its title repeats the common misconception that one can boil a frog by heating it very gradually.



The film premiered in September 2010 on Canadian television, followed by screenings at various film festivals in Canada and the U.S.[citation needed]
