Funny and Sad
5 June 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Two guys, Andy and Mike, go undercover for the greater good of mankind. In the vein of Michael Moore, they expose multinational corporations for the soulless bastards that they are. The best and most imaginative segment is when Andy presents himself as Jude Finisterra, a spokesman for Dow Chemical in a live BBC interview. Dow had just acquired Union Carbide, and "Jude" says that the company is dissolving Union Carbide to provide $12 billion dollars in a fund for the families of those injured or killed in the Bhopal disaster. He also reads a formal apology with acceptance of full responsibility for the accident. The stock plunged until a deal spokesperson corrected the phony information.

Another stunt which fooled the media, including the "fair and balanced" Fox News, where a fake representative from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce announcing a reversal of their previous position on global warming. The laughs are for a good cause, so they are worth it. The two are dedicated and funny satirists and the Yes Men is a valuable movie.
