"The best of the series to date. More than just another document of their antics, the documentary is an ode to a new era of activism relevant to anyone moved to take action - or questioning if it's worth their time to do so."
- IndieWire, Eric Kohn
"Co-director Nix is a crucial promotion to their filmmaking team. As Bichlbaum & Bonanno become primarily subjects once again (after co-directing "The Yes Men Fix the World" themselves), some great scenes involve an outsider's look into their friendship, ...It's a multi-layered slice of them that would fit in the same spot within a Duplass-directed indie."
- Roger Ebert.com, Nick Allen
"By allowing The Yes Men to voice the same anxieties experienced by anyone striving to remain relevant as they age, the directors have made the best Yes Men film yet."
- FILMMAKER MAGAZINE, Scott Macaulay
