Andy Bichlbaum and Mike Bonanno, aka the Yes Men, are anti-corporate pranksters with a serious purpose: to embarrass and harass the top executives of corporations who do much worse to their victims/customers usually by posing as executives themselves and running a confidence game. They get away with it because theyre articulate and look the part. Here, they take on Dow Chemical, Exxon, Halliburton, HUD, and other world-class leviathans by exposing their crimes to public ridicule, and our laughter is supposed to keep us from crying. Say the Yes Men: If we keep putting the market in the drivers seat, it could happily drive the whole planet off a cliff. Written and produced by Bichlbaum and Bonanno, who directed with Kurt Engfehr (87 min.).
