But as reports of human rights violations and international conflicts make daily headlines, a question arises: Is the United Nations living up to its founding ideals? The answer is a resounding no.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"These japes only do a disservice to the film's many serious allegations."
‑ Dennis Harvey, Variety
"The result is far from evenhanded, but capable of raising important questions."
‑ Mindy Farabee, Los Angeles Times
"Where are Michael Moore and his high-powered doc peers when you need them? The scrappy U.N. Me shines an unblinking light on a troubled organization."
‑ Christian Toto, Big Hollywood
"The film winds up making some persuasive arguments in favor of change."
‑ Todd Jorgenson, Cinemalogue.com
"Rightwing idiocy. The UN has its problems but this ex-investment banker has no idea how to solve them."
‑ Louis Proyect, rec.arts.movies.reviews
"He scores some good points, if at times his tone seems slightly inappropriate to the gravity of the subject."
‑ Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
"A sassy documentary that suggests the United Nations is doing more harm than good."
‑ Neil Genzlinger, New York Times
"The filmmakers present a sharp, well-argued case that exposes the rampant cronyism and greed eating away at the heart of the United Nations."
‑ Robert Levin, amNewYork
"Pugnacious documentary charges the United Nations with everything from gross incompetence to aiding and abetting genocide ... mostly successful except when undermined by Horowitz's cornball Michael Moore antics."
‑ Chris Barsanti, Film Journal International
"But U.N. Me isn't all sneering, and it certainly makes its points."
‑ Kalvin Henely, Slant Magazine
"What truly makes "U.N. Me'' repulsive is its crassness."
‑ Farran Smith Nehme, New York Post
"Is it all valid? Perhaps. Should the film's questions be addressed? Absolutely."
‑ Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News
"A sometimes humorous, often damning but also disingenuous attempt to "Michael Moore" the United Nations."
‑ Roger Moore, McClatchy-Tribune News Service
"Horowitz comes off as a deceptive jokester, so he doesn't always warrant a serious response from his audience. But we do need documentaries that reach beyond safe boundaries."
‑ Christopher Campbell, Movies.com
"[VIDEO ESSAY] You'll never look at the U.N. the same after seeing this film."
‑ Cole Smithey, ColeSmithey.com
