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

Hilarious, but scary...
3 July 2004 | by steveturner220See all my reviews

Just saw this film last week as the closing night film of Human Rights Watch film festival.

These guys are crazy. They travel the globe acting like WTO officials to make their point that if you look like you are in charge, you can say and do whatever you like.

Really got the audience fired up (although was a preaching to the choir a bit since it was a human rights watch event.)

Anyhow - one of the directors and one of the yes men were there for the Q&A.

Was really interesting but went on a little.

The movie is more about the two guys and their adventures than the WTO - so you may want to do some research before you go or go to their site to get more info before seeing the movie.

Not revolutionary but worth the 90 minutes. Has some of the funniest moments I've seen in a long time.
