To the people that I talked to who have seen Yes Man have said the same thing. "It's not Carry's best movie", and I can agree that it's not on the same level as The Mask, Dumb and Dumber or the brilliant masterpiece that is Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, but I honestly don't think it's has bad as some people are pointing it out to be.

It is very easy to find this movie pretty cheesy. But I actually really enjoyed the film. I think Carrey was a good choice for the piece, but he did not deliver a worthy performance. Deschanel is amazing. SHe really is great in most roles that are given to her. This is worth a lazy Sunday watch.

Its been awhile since Jim Carrey was seen onscreen. The premise was similar to Liar Liar, but in a more motivational setting. The soundtrack was enjoyable, screen play was uplifting, cinematography was pretty and cast were funny. Zooey Deschanel was very effective in her charming character. if only the script were better than this film could have been more memorable. Still, it was an entertaining comedy with a good lesson.

Jim Carrey plays a divorced 40-something bank loan officer Carl who feels trapped in the same dead end job while pining over his ex-wife Stephanie (Molly Sims). He says no to everything including life itself. Until a friend drags him to a seminar run by a self help guru who preaches the power of saying Yes! While reluctant at first, this extreme mantra sets off a positive chain of events, including meeting the beautiful free spirit musician/photographer Allison, getting a promotion at work, and reuniting with his friends. Jim is supported by an eclectic cast, including the stunning Zooey Deschanel, the delightful Kiwi, the handsome Bradley Cooper and Terence Stamp. Rhys Darby is hilarious as Carrey's aggressively and incompetently social boss. Jim Carrey is in his element so if you wanna …

Slightly underrated, Yes Man, is just another bump in Jim Carrey's road of hilariousity. Carrey portrays a person who could easily be considerd a "no man" (a phrase not uterd, but screamed far too many times in this film) who attends a convention to become more of a "yes man." He changes his life by saying yes to every question he get's asked, including learning to speak Korean, throwing his best friends', fiance's bachelorette party, and attending his boss' "dress up as your favorite Harry Potter character" costume party. Along his journey to become more likeable, he meets and falls in love with the lead singer of an obviousally quirky band, amazingly played by Zooey Deschanel, (which by the way, may be best part of the film.)
The movie has its highs and lows, unfortuneatly for us …

Yes, Jim's certainly back. Though I'm sort of surprised with the way he delivered his slapstick antics here. It seemed he lost his touch making people laugh over the years or making me laugh for that matter. Some of his jokes are getting pretty old and he's slowly getting there too. If you’re expecting the Jim’s Ace Ventura or his Liar Liar character here you will be disappointed. But then if you just want to see something to feel good about then you’ll be definitely be rewarded. It’s quite marvelous to see how people are changed with one word. And Jim’s missing funny bone is almost unnoticeable with all the good things happening in the movie. I know he’s trying so hard to be the funny man that he used to be and I got to give him props for it. He did have his moments. And …
