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

Watch "The Yes Men Fix the World" instead.
25 August 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

While I am more conservative than the leftist activists who made "The Yes Men Fix the World", I appreciated their nerve and style--plus the film made me think. These guys managed to infiltrate various meetings and pretended to be the most evil of capitalists all in an attempt to mock what they supposedly supported. Their anti-corporate and anti-globalist message provided a lot of punch, so while I didn't completely agree with their message, I loved the film and looked forward to seeing their previous film, "The Yes Men". Unfortunately, the film didn't even come close to meeting my expectations and really bored me. Most of the problem is that this documentary really looked amateurish and poorly constructed--like something done by teens that is designed to be posted to YouTube. Too often, the leading men looked way out of their element, ill-prepared and silly--and not in a good way. Additionally, many times throughout the film, I felt annoyed because it really, really needed editing. My feeling is that "The Yes Men" is a not yet ready for distribution project. My advice--see the sequel instead.
