A must see movie!
14 January 2016 | by (the companion galaxy just below Andromeda) – See all my reviews

I'm a huge fan of The Yes Men. They are the kind of people who make me believe that one should never stop hoping. Maybe their previous movie was better than this one, but it's understandable why. In the mean time, they got older and one of them has now wife and kids. It's not easy to be an activist, especially when you need money, i.e., have to work to survive. This movie is more personal. It shows how frustrated they got, reason why they look a bit tired and needed so long to make another movie. Nevertheless it's still very good and the subject is very important. Like the other one, this movie has funny moments and is very inspiring. I wish they would make more movies more often. Don't stop, Yes Men!
