Jim Carrey's comic convulsions are the only bright spots in this otherwise dim and predictable comedy.

The most even-keeled, pleasant and mainstream movie Jim Carrey has made in many a moon.
Sort of ho-hum stuff, but nice to see a cameo from Rhys Darby, from TV's Flight of the Conchords.
I think this movie needs to be skipped.
Contrived and silly to say the least.
It's a small, nice return to form by Jim Carrey.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
