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.

The Yes Men's political performance art is very funny and much care obviously goes into it.
The Yes Men has its moments, but they're too few and far between to make us drop our Palm Pilots and dissolve into continuous laughter.
There are few things as satisfying as watching the wealthy, righteous, powerful or pompous get fully duped. As a result, there is a great deal of satisfaction in The Yes Men.
The filmmakers include some good behind-the-scenes footage ... and have unfettered access, but the movie sometimes feels like one long college fraternity stunt.
The Yes Men feels padded at only 83 minutes, as if the footage had been stretched to fill the running time, but it gets the point across that humanity is sorely missing from the corporate world.
...the filmmakers don't have a solid plan for bringing the Yes Men's story to the big screen...
As activists, the Yes Men are about as effective as an article in the satirical weekly, The Onion, or any episode of Phil Hendry's radio show
Uproarious subversive documentary that targets the World Trade Organization.
Chris Smith is the next great documentarian for mainstream American audiences to discover, and he richly merits a wide release.
Bracingly engaging--simply because Bichlbaum and Bonanno are so likeable, hilarious, smart and provocative.
I wish the film had expanded its view... and yet what we get, while not much, is at least sufficient.
These guys are just plain good for our collective soul -- they're my new heroes.
Os atos dos Yes Men são hilários, inteligentes e ideologicamente admiráveis, mas o filme se revela desorganizado e pouco informativo no que diz respeito aos temas que critica.
A hilarious subversion of the World Trade Organisation - but better, perhaps, not to entrust such weighty issues to a couple of confidence tricksters.
The movie's humor, as these protesting pranksters make their points with deadpan delivery, hits its target more effectively than any bomb-thrower could.
Think of a politicized version of the MTV show Punk'd and you're on your way to getting the idea of The Yes Men.
While some scenes seem to have been re-created, any questionable authenticity is negated by the hilariousness of the film.
Apparently most people lose the urge to fight for justice somewhere between the frat house and the corporate cubicle.
The film is amusing and at times informative, but it's also got an underlying self-importance that's a little condescending.
