Goes to show how easily people are brainwashed - especially those in paid employment - on the treadmill taking whatever is thrown at them, whereas the college students actually reacted and weren't or aren't yet so easily fooled!!
Mmmm this is pretty much on par with undergraduate pranks. The stunts are more smug than ingenious and the "Yes Mens" view of the WTO is faux naif.
They make some good points and often they are hilarious. But too often they have no point to make and are more interested in their own performance than actually communicating a message.
Just an OK doco for me. Low production values compared to other docos and there really wasn't enough material to keep up your interest.
Hate it. could not watch it all.
The Yes Men are highly gifted with creative prank invention skills. The stunts they pull are absolutely hilarious! It would have been good to see more of the development of these pranks (brainstorming, trial and error, planning, etc) rather than the mundane running around and background tasks. But overall, a very enjoyable documentary!
Like any "making of" show, this is really very patchy. However, the few excellent bits more than make up for the majority of the chaotic minutae of corporate satire. When they are doing their thing they are awe inspiring, when they arnt it is well worth finding out what the >> button does. If nothing else they show the World Trade Organisation (WTO) for what they really are, and you wont find that elsewhere.
