Movie Info

Carl Allen (Jim Carrey) is stuck in a rut with his negative ways. Then he goes to a self-help seminar and learns to unleash the power of yes. Living in the affirmative leads him to all sorts of amazing and transforming experiences; he gets a job promotion, and even finds a new romance. But Carl finds that too much of anything, even positive thinking, is not necessarily a good thing.

Audience Reviews for Yes Man

  • Apr 19, 2020
    Jim Carrey and Zooey Deschanel star in the wild romantic comedy Yes Man. After going through a bad break up Carl Allen becomes withdrawn and antisocial until he goes to a self-help seminar and enters a program that requires him to say "yes" to any opportunity that presents itself. Both Carrey and Deschanel give solid performances and have good chemistry together. And they're backed by a strong supporting cast that includes Bradley Cooper, Terence Stamp, and Sasha Alexander. Also, the comedy is fairly well done, creating some rather zany adventures for Carl to get into (though there are a few bits of vulgar sexual humor). Additionally, the soundtrack helps to set a lighthearted tone and features Zooey Deschanel in several songs. It's not without its problems, but Yes Man is a fun lark with a positive message about seizing the day.

    Jim Carrey is hilarious with his customary physical humor, but he can't do much 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.

    Ironically, I am not Mr. Yes Man to this predictable semi-witty comedy.

    An easy and fun watch that isn't stupid which is great considering Carrey's lead role. Both Carrey and Deschanel give great performances and it has some cool funny moments that make you feel great come the end.
