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.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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

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

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 has Michael Moore's smug tendencies without his schlubby everyman charm, which makes his attempts at goading humor out of uncomfortable interviews come off as unpleasant.

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

Unfortunately, mocking jibes and cutaways to Team America and Wonder Woman (among other movies and TV shows) establish a jokey attitude that weakens the overall case.
