  1. While it's not a great movie, it's a revealing study of how long it often takes for businesspeople to realize they're being freaked out, not flattered.
  2. 80
    An uproarious and appalling piece of consciousness-raising.
  3. 75
    Subversive and diabolically funny.
  4. 70
    The Yes Men's brilliant lies unlock explosive satirical truths, but the film runs out of steam a bit toward the end.
  5. A sobering yet hysterically funny documentary.
  6. Inspiring and shows just how far a couple of guys, a few computers, and a good sense of humor can go.
  7. A few minutes of inspired lunacy aside, The Yes Men is largely a case of the same old preachers preaching to the same old choir.

    I love this movie. These men and their team are my heroes! Bravo! Bravo! The most brilliant coup I've ever imagined, let alone been privileged to witness. Encore! Encore! (And I say this post Bhopal-20 - more kudos due there!) Expand

    There are definately some laugh-out-loud moments here. All in all though, it's just a bit too budget gonzo documentary to satisfy. Maybe it would have made a better short film. Warning to those with sensitive embarrasment glands: Uncomfortable scenes of crowds of earnest types being duped and not realising it. Expand
