"As Hollywood-style blockbusters go, United We Stand: Europe has a Mission seems to have it all: superstar hotties Ewan MacGregor and Penelope Cruz, international intrigue, gripping action," writes Paul Schmelzer, "But what it doesn't have is American heroes.

"The streets of Berlin, Brussels, Barcelona, Bangalore and now New York have been plastered with thousands of posters of this fake movie, in the first stage of a long-term communication strategy that began in late 2005 and will gradually cover the whole media spectrum from blogs to magazines and TV..."This is my favorite part of the film's materials (though I trust it pokes fun of the French and Europeans as well):
