good film -- but more important the topics covered with humor are cruitial for the world's environment
I thoroughly enjoyed seeing the Yes Men with their antics. They have the balls to go through audacious plans that could save the planet in the long run.
Attention-seekers parading as activists. When you make people look foolish, you're more likely to strengthen your opponents' resolve than convince them of your position. I support their causes, but not their methods. Adding in a bit of personal drama between the two renders the film even more pointless and indulgent.

A funny and creative look at a serious issue. Thank goodness there are people like The Yes Men and their compatriots who take the time and energy to try and correct serious problems such as climate change. It is a little discouraging that the "bad guys" still seem to be winning.
More personal than their previous work, Revolting provides both zany hilarity and sobering reality. In this film, The Yes Men become more than mere activist antics, and their humanity endears them (and their wonderfully creative stunts) to the audience. It's a story all people who are passionate for social justice can connect to. It's charming, heartbreaking, and inspiring. It's serious and seriously funny. I can't wait to see what's next.
Funny movie with serious matters. I laughed through most of this--jack ass the movie but with a message and brains.
"The Yes Men Are Revolting" and evolving.
The latest film by the provocative political-performance duo, the Yes
Men, made its debut in Tucson, Arizona on Sunday. Native Tucsonan Andy
Bichlbaum showed up to introduce the film and answer questions
afterwords. The only disappointment is that there weren't any re-
burgers for us during the show. Unlike their other two films, this
version of the Yes Men was more introspective and less triumphal. As
anybody involved in political activism or organizing of any kind know
that not every action comes off as planned, and a couple of the actions
in the film came off, barely and poorly. There were also successes. The
1) Never give up, try, try again, and get right back on that horse
cause winners never quit and quitters never win. 2) Doing something is
better than doing nothing. 3) Use Wigs. 4) Regular people can make a
difference 5) Collaborate.
For a long time, the Yes Men brainstormed most of their own ideas as a
duo and then at the end brought on assistants such as camera crew,
make-up and props people. The learned that this was no long possible
for them. Perhaps they will change their name to "The Yes People."
In this movie the Yes Men talk about their paying jobs, their
relationships and family as well as activism. Because their lives were
put into the context of how they could find time to create actions, the
film doesn't fall into the trap of becoming a reality show about two
Mr. Bichlbaum's answers to our questions were at times enlightening and
at other times mundane. His humility was refreshing and he came of as a
kind and shy gentleman. He credits Occupy Wall Street with creating a
new type of movement and re-energizing them. I am loathe to say more
about the film for I do not want to give away too much.
Rating: Pay full price.
The movie is funny, entertaining, educational and life affirming, if
not life altering. Time for my re-burger.
