Movie Info

When the United Nations was founded more than sixty years ago, it embodied our hope for a safer, more peaceful world. But as reports of human rights violations and international conflicts make daily headlines, a question arises: Is the United Nations living up to its founding ideals? The answer is a resounding no. In a film that exposes the incompetence and corruption at the heart of the United Nations, filmmakers Ami Horowitz and Matthew Groff show how an organization created to ennoble mankind

These japes only do a disservice to the film's many serious allegations.

He scores some good points, if at times his tone seems slightly inappropriate to the gravity of the subject.

What truly makes "U.N. Me'' repulsive is its crassness.

The result is far from evenhanded, but capable of raising important questions.

A sassy documentary that suggests the United Nations is doing more harm than good.

Is it all valid? Perhaps. Should the film's questions be addressed? Absolutely.

Where are Michael Moore and his high-powered doc peers when you need them? The scrappy U.N. Me shines an unblinking light on a troubled organization.

The filmmakers present a sharp, well-argued case that exposes the rampant cronyism and greed eating away at the heart of the United Nations.

A sometimes humorous, often damning but also disingenuous attempt to "Michael Moore" the United Nations.

The film winds up making some persuasive arguments in favor of change.

Pugnacious documentary charges the United Nations with everything from gross incompetence to aiding and abetting genocide ... mostly successful except when undermined by Horowitz's cornball Michael Moore antics.

Horowitz comes off as a deceptive jokester, so he doesn't always warrant a serious response from his audience. But we do need documentaries that reach beyond safe boundaries.

Rightwing idiocy. The UN has its problems but this ex-investment banker has no idea how to solve them.

But U.N. Me isn't all sneering, and it certainly makes its points.

A humorously ironic look at what the filmmakers believe to be incompetence and corruption at the United Nations.
