News & Interviews for Yes Man
Critic Reviews for Yes Man
As self-help comedy, the movie is no more overdetermined than its own highbrow counterpart, Happy-Go-Lucky.
It's a decent enough time-killer for Carrey fans and those after something light and non-taxing after a heavy Christmas Day feast.
As much as I try to convince myself I'm tired of Jim Carrey, darn it, he almost always amuses me.
A ready-made Christmas-time crowd-pleaser that pretty much plays it safe, even in its cruder moments, and will be in circulation on cable soon enough.
Audience Reviews for Yes Man
Jim Carrey is, of course, hilarious in his customary physical humor, but not much that he does here is enough to compensate for gags that are mostly poorly conceived or just ridiculous, not to mention a plot that borders on complete implausibility and is all about artificial conflicts.
Not the best... interesting idea for a comedy, but Jim Carrey is just too hammy in it and it lacks substance and feels shorter than it is. A few mild laughs and a few gross scenes too (such as the old lady).
Zooey is worth watching, but she's done better movies.
I've read the book it's based on and it's seriously nothing like it.
