The Yes Men is a comic, biting and revelatory documentary directed by the filmmaking team hehind the acclaimed Sundance Grand Jury Prize- winner American Movie. The Yes Men follows the Yes Men, a small group of prankster activists, as they gain worldwide noteriety for impersonating the World Trade Orgainization (WTO) on television and at business conferences around the world. The film begins when two members, Andy and Mike, set up a website that mimics the WTO's and it's mistaken for the real thing. They play along with the ruse and soon find themselves invited to important functions as WTO representatives. Delighted to represent the organization they politically oppose, Andy and Mike set out to shock unwitting audiences with satire that highlights the worst aspects of global free trade.

Metacritic Score

  • 70

    Los Angeles Times

    Smart and amusing.

  • 60

    The New York Times Manohla Dargis

    Diverting if heavily padded, this is the newest addition to an increasingly crowded field of political nonfiction films and certainly the easiest viewing.

    Variety Dennis Harvey

    Sometimes feels like an extended pilot for a smarty-pants broadcast series in the tradition of Michael Moore's "Awful Truth" and "TV Nation" skeins.
