U.N. Me isn't all sneering, and it certainly makes its points.
63
If it weren't so shocking, it would be a lot funnier.

The New York Times
Not much here is new, but condensing it all into one zippy documentary makes for an ugly portrait.
60
The result is far from evenhanded, but capable of raising important questions.
60
Is it all valid? Perhaps. Should the film's questions be addressed? Absolutely.
50
Covering a lot of ground in colorful, pacey fashion, the documentary is nonetheless somewhat compromised itself by co-director Ami Horowitz's insistence on playing the Michael Moore/Morgan Spurlock role of onscreen provocateur.
40
Codirector Ami Horowitz hogs the screen like a cut-rate Michael Moore, bringing a numbingly simplistic irony and smug self-satisfaction to his faux-rabble-rousing exposé.
40
Village Voice
Unfortunately, mocking jibes and cutaways to Team America and Wonder Woman (among other movies and TV shows) establish a jokey attitude that weakens the overall case.
40
A damning account of institutional dysfunction whose ability to stoke indignation is undercut by its filmmakers' misguided comic antics.
0
What truly makes U.N. Me repulsive is its crassness.
