Critics Consensus

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

Movie Info

Carl Allen's life is going nowhere--the operative word being "no"--until he signs up for a self-help program based on one simple covenant: say yes to everything--and anything. Unleashing the power of "YES" begins to transform Carl's life in amazing and unexpected ways, getting him promoted at work and opening the door to a new romance. But, his willingness to embrace every opportunity might just become too much of a good thing.

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

Jan 8, 2009 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Sort of ho-hum stuff, but nice to see a cameo from Rhys Darby, from TV's Flight of the Conchords.

No, man.

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.

Audience Reviews for Yes Man


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.
