Storyline

A comedic documentary which follows The Yes Men, a small group of prankster activists, as they gain world-wide notoriety for impersonating the World Trade Organization on television and at business conferences around the world. The film begins when two members of The Yes Men, Andy and Mike, set up a website that mimics the World Trade Organization'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 don thrift-store suits and set out to shock unwitting audiences with darkly comic satire that highlights the worst aspects of global free trade. Written by Sujit R. Varma

User Reviews

Very interesting, very funny.
7 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The only other user comment as of 3.7.05 seems to be nothing more than a personal attack on the Yes Men, so I have disregarded it entirely.

The documentary is so funny I nearly had a coronary watching it.

It is very inspiring to see someone speaking publicly about the corruption of the WTO and the large corporations it represents.

The comparison of the historical form of slavery to the present state of some workers in the poorest countries is appropriate.

I can't wait for another documentary about the the Yes Men.

I had no idea that these guys were well organized, intelligent, and apparently well educated.

I salute their satire, and their courage.
