About the Movie
For 20 years, notorious activists the Yes Men (Mike Bonanno and Andy Bichlbaum) have staged outrageous hoaxes to hijack public dialogue about the issues of the day. In their third cinematic outing (after The Yes Men and The Yes Men Fix the World), they’re well into their 40s, and mid-life crises are threatening to drive them out of activism forever – even as they prepare to take on the biggest challenge yet: climate change. Their latest film is as much a character study as it is a thrilling ride depicting their latest interventions against corporate greed. From villages in Uganda, to toxic oil fields in Canada, these iconoclastic revolutionaries take on big oil, lobbyists, and the U.S. government, armed with nothing but thrift-store suits. Overcoming personal obstacles to deliver uproarious actions of global significance, the Yes Men deliver a hopeful message about ordinary people taking back the planet.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: "The Yes Men Are Revolting," their third film, has a personal poignancy that is missing in the forerunners, "The Yes Men" (2003) and "The Yes Men Fix the World" (2009).
Fresh: The prankster activists return to wage war against climate change in this amusing documentary.
Fresh: The faux press conferences and perverse inventions (SurvivaBall, anyone?) that are included here highlight corporate greed and governmental shortsightedness as shrewdly as ever.
Rotten: As it progresses, watching Mike raise children, move off to Scotland, and grow less involved in planning satirical performance art, the film presupposes a bit more interest in the pair's friendship and personal lives than many viewers will have.
The best one so far
So funny and insightful.
If you’ve never heard of these pranksters, you need to watch this movie. The stunts are hilarious, the causes are all important, and the two men and their unique partnership is fascinating to watch as they balance work, children, relationships and their elaborate schemes. You’ll probably learn about some corporations who will make you mad, but you’ll love watching The Yes Men punk them. GO YES MEN!
