Time Out Chicago

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.

I have to admit that it was pretty funny a lot of the time.

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.

Washington Times

Mr. Carrey's performance is a return to the rubber-faced roles that dominated multiplexes in the mid- to late '90s, and that's not necessarily a good thing.

Yes Man is proof that reverse psychology works; No, it's not worth seeing because, no, it's not that funny.

The benefits of grounding comedy in reality are never-ending, and Yes Man takes advantage of most of them. Peyton Reed is officially one of my favorite comic directors.

Groucho Reviews

[The] writers...pay lip service to the dark side of 'yes,' but don't do enough to explore what could have made the film more than a bouncy entertainment. [Blu-ray]

I found myself having a few pleasant chuckles but still frustrated at the movie for not bothering with telling a story that hasn't already been told a million times before.

A film that has little plot until the last act, yet Carrey rises above it to bring it to an acceptable level.

...a pleasant surprise: a romantic comedy that is cute, amiable, and winning without being excessively tedious, saccharine, or gross.

Jim Carrey's career has succumbed to painfully mediocre comedies and genre missteps for so long that "Yes Man" barely registers even as you're watching it.

The most even-keeled, pleasant and mainstream movie Jim Carrey has made in many a moon.

The Australian

Numbingly predictable and not as filled with action as the misleading poster suggests.

Philip Wilding
Empire Magazine

It's charming enough with some nice comedy touches, but the initially intriguing premise is soon railroaded out of sight by its desire to conform to a tried-and-tested cinematic formula.
